This report aims at helping individuals and organizations advocate for, design, and implement progressive policies toward immigrants at the city level as well as address, with immigrant-friendly, city level policies, the problems that large inflows of immigrants sometimes generate for the communities receiving them. These goals have become particularly important given the recent failures of comprehensive immigration reform initiatives at the federal level.
