Cities Welcoming Immigrants?

Immigration Impact reminds us that some cities welcome immigrants.  Dayton, Ohio in particular has adopted a comprehensive approach to welcoming immigrants. The “Welcome Dayton Plan” covers “everything from health care to public safety.” A section of downtown Dayton is being set aside as “an international marketplace for immigrant entrepreneurs.” Perhaps just as importantly, the Welcoming Dayton Plan is “about changing the city’s culture”—changing the way immigrants are viewed and changing the reception they receive upon their arrival.
