Detroit joins list of immigrant-friendly cities

Associated Press

September 15, 2014

Detroit — The city of Detroit is joining a national initiative aimed at creating immigrant-friendly environments.

The Detroit Immigration Task Force plans to announce Monday that Detroit will participate in “Welcoming Cities & Counties.”

It joins New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and other cities in the program that also looks to maximize opportunities for economic growth through immigration.

Task force members include immigrant community leaders, nonprofit service providers and immigration experts. The group has been working since January to draft a comprehensive city-wide plan to help Detroit become a diverse, inclusive and global city.

City Councilwoman Raquel Castañeda-López says “Detroit’s immigrants historically played a key role in making the city one of the greatest in the world.”
