New Hampshire's Immigration Story
Thu November 17, 2011
International Institute CEO Says Manchester Able to Support Additional Refugees
New Hampshire’s Immigration Story includes the stories of many refugees, people who come to the United States because they can't stay in their native countries, due to violence or famine.
Many of those refugees are resettled in Manchester, but the city’s mayor, Ted Gatsas, says that needs to change. He wants a moratorium on new placements to avoid straining city services.
This week All Things Considered host Brady Carlson talked with Carolyn Benedict-Drew, the president and CEO of the International Institute of New England, which resettles refugees in New Hampshire. She says Manchester can accommodate more refugees even in a tough economy and with tight city budgets.
