COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio Gov. John Kasich[1] (KAY’-sihk) is announcing an initiative aimed at helping legal immigrants successfully integrate in the state.

The Republican governor planned a Tuesday morning announcement in Columbus.

Kasich[2] has taken a conciliatory approach to immigrant issues in the past, joining a bipartisan group of governors calling for the preservation of a program that protects immigrants brought to the U.S. as young children from deportation.

Kasich[3] has called on those immigrants, known as Dreamers, to come to Ohio. Kasich[4], the grandson of Czech and Croatian immigrants, also has said he wouldn’t be in the U.S. if it weren’t for immigration.
