The mayor of Baltimore, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, believes that the number of immigrants to the Baltimore area should be increased. Rawlings-Blake wishes to add 10,000 immigrant families to Baltimore to strengthen the economy. While federal lawmakers set immigration rules, the mayor describes Baltimore as a city that is progressive when it comes to immigration policies, with a “long history of” being “home to immigrants from around the world.”
With positive support from local politicians, Baltimore can be a wonderful place for immigrants to live. However, foreign nationals must still comply with all legal requirements and have lawful status to take advantage of opportunities that Baltimore offers.
Family members, too, need to be aware of immigration laws so they can take action to sponsor relatives who are foreign nationals and who want to live and work in the city, or become permanent residents.
