This report aims at helping elected officials, policy-makers, activists, community-based organizations and city residents advocate for, design and implement progressive city policies toward immigrants. These goals have become particularly important given the recent failures of comprehensive immigration reform initiatives at the federal level. Building on policy experiments and experiences from all around the country, the report offers a menu of local policies aimed at creating immigrant-friendly cities.
