The Influence of the Present Economic Situation on the Settlement of Immigrants
The Detroit Jewish community faces increasing difficulty in settling Jewish refugees, who come to the U.S. primarily from Poland and Egypt. Rising rent costs, medical requirements, and reduced job availabilities are challenges facing the immigrant population, who can no longer walk door-to-door in a Jewish community in order to find gainful employment. Navigating employment laws, immigration restrictions, and union politics have become more complex, and greater resources must be dedicated to successful resettlement of refugees. The author suggests the establishment of a system where immigrants can move to a city that has a need for their particular talents, though perfect solutions remain as yet out of sight.
