Comment: Immigrant Friendly City - While states like Alabama and Arizona are busy driving away immigrants, or anyone who looks like them, through their draconian laws; other states and cities are seeing it as an opportunity for welcoming the persecuted minorities in the best of American tradition. The city of Dayton, Ohio has adopted a Welcome Dayton: Immigrant Friendly City plan to attract immigrants to revitalize its economy. In a community where immigrants are welcomed, they receive mutual respect and support, while in an unwelcoming community they can experience social isolation, health problems, poverty and social discord. This report is an action plan that can provide a roadmap for the City of Dayton to become a nationally recognized Immigrant Friendly City. Over one hundred people touched, influenced or had a hand in formulating this report: Welcome Dayton: Immigrant Friendly City. This report can be viewed as a shout out that says: Welcome to Dayton - This is an Immigrant Friendly City. What do you think cities and states across the US do to make the most of the follies of the anti-immigrationists? Let us know by commenting in our letters section or by writing to
