Mayor Brown attends immigration summit

NEW YORK, N.Y. (WIVB) – Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown is in New York City at an immigration summit Monday. At least 20 mayors from across the United States are at Mayor Bill de Blasio’s summit, to discuss an implementation plan of an executive order on immigration.

“Throughout its history, Buffalo has benefited from the immeasurable economic contributions of its immigrant populations and as we continue to see a dramatic increase in the number of immigrants and refugees settling here, we want to make sure that we’re doing all that we can to ease the transition for our newest residents,” Brown said in a press release.

Brown’s office said he launched a New Americans Study earlier this year. The study will help the city develop policies to make Buffalo a destination of choice for refugees and immigrants.
