BALTIMORE CITY DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION: Baltimore mayor: City is good for immigrants, and vice versa
Baltimore City Department of Transportation issued the following announcement on Sept. 18.
As we reflect on the tremendous value our immigrant and refugee communities add to our city, read my op-ed and check out the municipal index by the New American Economy.
The bipartisan group, New American Economy (NAE), which makes the economic case for smart and effective immigration policies, just released its inaugural NAE Cities Index. NAE analyzed the 100 largest U.S. cities and assigned each a score, based on several criteria related to how well they are integrating newcomers. Those criteria include the strength of cities’ immigrant integration policies and a range of socioeconomic outcomes for each city’s immigrants, such as homeownership rates, entrepreneurship rates and more.#BmoreWelcoming #IAmAmerica
