GLOBAL DETROIT UPDATE
February 28, 2012

Immigrant Welcoming in the News

On February 9, Global Detroit brought Tom Wahlrab and Sherri Wierzba, two of the community leaders behind "Welcome Dayton," a plan to make Dayton more welcoming to immigrants, to Detroit to share their story. We are so grateful to those of you who were able to join us for another great event, and thankful for Tom's inspiring story of community-driven change in Dayton. If you missed the event, click here to read Global Detroit's story about Welcome Dayton in Model D.

Changing Gears from WBEZ Chicago ran a story last week about how leaders throughout the Midwest are laying out the Welcome Mat as an economic development strategy, using our event with Welcome Dayton to kick off the article. Global Detroit's Director, Steve Tobocman, is featured, as are some of Global Detroit's small business development and Welcome Mat initiatives.

In a sign that the pro-immigrant trend is permeating our communities, we're excited to share a series of news stories that we've noticed this month:
Detroit Free Press: Governor Snyder and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg co-authored an op-ed in yesterday's Freep urging leaders to reframe the immigration debate to revolve around points of agreement: immigrants create jobs and drive business creation.
Bloomberg Businessweek: Governor Snyder calls himself "the most pro-immigrant governor in America." He wants more immigrants, especially students and entrepreneurs, to move to Michigan.
Detroit Free Press: Peter Karmanos published an op-ed making the case that Michigan businesses need access to immigrant talent. Mr. Karmanos highlights the Global Detroit International Student Retention Initiative (now called the Global Talent Retention Initiative).
Michigan Radio: Governor Snyder's budget proposal includes the creation of a state-wide Cultural Ambassadors program to welcome immigrants to Michigan. The story features findings from the Global Detroit research study.








DHS Reforms on Immigration

International Student Retention Reforms Offer Great Promise


Recognizing that America's international students offer one of our country's greatest opportunities for continued economic prosperity, the U.S. Department of Human Services announced on a series of proposed reforms to attract and retain high-skilled immigrants. These proposals include creating a "Startup Visa," strengthening the H-1B program, and "stapling" green cards to the diplomas of certain foreign-born graduates in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.

You can read a description of the DHS proposals here. We'll be watching eagerly to see how the necessary regulations develop, and will help you stay informed.

Thanks for reading. Stay tuned for more news and invitations from Global Detroit!
