A city immigration task force held the first of a series of listening sessions Thursday. The task force will make recommendations to the city council next year on how to make Charlotte more immigrant-friendly.
The City Council formed the Immigrant Integration Task Force primarily for two purposes: Make Charlotte more immigrant-friendly and capitalize on immigrant entrepreneurs.
“We want to hear from the community what’s going on,” says Stefan LaTorre, the chairman of the task force. He says he has a few preliminary questions need to be addressed.
