Conference Agenda

Serving Immigrant Populations

Jul. 24, 2017 , 8:00 am – 9:15 am
Room B132

In the debate over immigration reform, the county perspective is often overlooked; yet, from an operational and managerial standpoint, counties are the central players. From providing translators in PSAPs and public ESOL teachers, to helping migrants develop businesses and increase the tax base, county operations of all sizes across the country must deal with the impacts of immigration as county leaders seek to integrate foreign-born residents into their communities. County officials from a variety of counties will discuss the role of counties in immigration, and how counties deal with the impact of immigration on county budgets, funding, service provision and personnel.
