Immigration and Metropolitan Revitalization in Philadelphia and Nationwide
Domenic Vitiello & A. K. Sandoval-Strausz

Immigrants have played central roles in the revitalization of cities and suburbs across the Philadelphia region and the nation, but not always in the ways that popular narratives suggest. This conversation with two leading scholars of immigration and urban history will explore the multiple effects of immigration and immigrants on the places we live. How did immigration turn around decades of urban decline across the United States? How and why have Pennsylvania and the nation developed such a fractured landscape of pro- and anti-immigrant politics? In the wake of the Trump administration's efforts to restrict immigration, what challenges and opportunities lay ahead for immigration and cities?
