White House Discusses Strengthening Communities by Welcoming Immigrants


A July 17 post on Immigration Impact highlights the National Convening on Immigrant and Refugee Integration, coordinated by Welcoming America and the National Partnership for New Americans, and held at the White House, at which nearly 200 leaders from communities across the U.S. gathered on July 16. Attendees discussed successful initiatives, as well as challenges and opportunities for immigrant integration. The day after the White House convening, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce hosted discussions with community leaders and practitioners about spurring local economic growth by welcoming immigrants.
