Dr. Nguyen Shares Research on Immigrant Growth

From our friends at the UNC Department of City and Regional Planning. 

Dr. Mai Thi Nguyen, an advocate and partner of Building Integrated Communities, is the Director of the Housing and Community Development Specialization. She shared her research on two different ways that NC communities have responded to rapid immigration growth: increased local immigration enforcement vs. immigrant integration. She also shared insights on the roles planners can play in immigrant integration.
