Cities and counties play a central role in setting the tone for immigrant integration and receptivity, despite changing discourses on immigration at the state and federal level. Amid the broader context of immigration federalism and debates over immigration policy at the national level, local places in recent years have been pursuing their own paths on local immigration policy. Such subnational initiatives have led to warmer receptivity (welcoming) in some places and cooler receptivity (unwelcoming) in others for immigrant communities.
