CHULA VISTA RANKS HIGH IN PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES TO IMMIGRANTS
The New American Economy, a bipartisan research group, released its second annual Cities Index which assesses how well the top 100 largest cities support immigrants. Chicago was ranked number one with Chula Vista coming in at number two.
Last year, Chula Vista ranked number three in the NAE City Index. Chula Vista City leaders are pleased with the increased score which includes perfect scores in three subgroups – Economic Empowerment, Inclusivity, and Community. Mayor Mary Casillas Salas said, “Chula Vista is proud to be a diverse and welcoming city. We are thrilled with the increased rating from the NAE.”
NAE was formed in 2010 by corporate executives including Michael Bloomberg and Rupert Murdoch to reframe immigration reform. Their goal is to secure the borders and prevent illegal immigration, create more opportunities for immigrants to join the United States workforce, and help in the effort of legal status for all undocumented immigrants.
There are 51 factors used in the annual City Index to determine how well a city is helping immigrants succeed. To view the complete list from the New American Economy, visit https://bit.ly/2QgjQc4.
