Federal immigration policies are seeking to shrink immigrant populations and opportunities. At the local level, however, immigrants thrive when they feel safe and are given the opportunity to participate in the decisions that affect their lives. From small towns to big cities, much can be done to include immigrants’ interests, safeguard their families and ensure they can contribute to their fullest potential.
