Dayton paints itself as 'immigrant-friendly'

DAYTON, Oct. 6, 2011 (AP): Officials have given unanimous approval to an Ohio city's ``immigrant-friendly'' plan aimed at bolstering a shrinking population.

Dayton Mayor Gary Leitzell read a statement during Wednesday's city commission meeting saying the Welcome Dayton program is not about harboring illegal immigrants or drawing them into the city. He says the focus instead is on treating all people kindly, fairly and humanely.

The Dayton Daily News reports the plan was approved by commissioners 4-0. Its backers have said it could lead to the creation of a new international marketplace and a new city identification card for residents who can't get a driver's license or a state ID.

Dayton Human Relations Council Director Tom Wahlrab says a next step is to set up a volunteer committee to help get the program going.
