This holiday season, many are celebrating the opportunities the President’s executive actions affords them, or those they hold dear. At the same time, some detention facilities will be full of women and children, and families will still be torn apart by deportation. This week I would like to highlight the positive economic potential of the executive actions, brought to us by Immigration Impact’s Paul McDaniel. Hopefully this impact, as well as our call to welcome and care for the sojourner, will empower us to extend the long welcome to our neighbors in the new year.
