The rust belt has had some trouble marketing itself as a site for new immigration, but it is certainly headed in the right direction. Through high school, I would periodically volunteer with the Latino Outreach program in Oakland, and over the four year period that I was there, the population being served grew exponentially. And the most important thing is that it's a mix of immigrants that are being served, not just the highly sought after white collar immigrants.I thought it was interesting that the article made a point of specifying "legal" immigrants. One wonders how many of the Irish and Italians coming to Cleveland in the late 19th century were actually undocumented.
