“There needs to be a shift in how we view immigrants… and how we see immigration so it’s no longer seen as a threat.”

_Raquel Castañeda López

City Council member Raquel Castañeda-López has helped launch an Immigration Task Force in Detroit.

The task force is in the beginning phases of rolling out a plan to deal with pressing immigrant issues. The group of city leaders meets every other month and will support the future Bureau of Immigration Affairs in the Mayor’s office.

WDET’s Martina Guzman spoke to Council-member Castañeda-López about what exactly the task force intends to do.
