Attracting more Migrants to Northeast Ohio As elected officials in Washington debate how to reform the nation's immigration policy, momentum is gaining locally for an effort to attract more immigrants to Northeast Ohio to restock a depleted population. But history shows us immigration waves often are met with fear. Join host Mike McIntyre Wednesday at 9 as we discuss the case for attracting immigrants -- the highly educated and the low skilled -- and how they can come bearing prosperity.
