The exploitation of immigrants is nothing new. Too often day laborers get picked up for work, spend all day working hard, only to get told they'll get paid at the end of the week, or just some other day that never actually comes. Scams like this just scratch the tip of the injustices done to new immigrants in our communities and all over the U.S. In our first bilingual edition of the Bronx Journal, Miguel Perez talks about the "New Immigrant Community Empowerment", an organization dedicated to preventing the exploitation of Day Laborers and Domestic workers, by educating them.

Migrant and hosting communities face long-term challenges in the integration process. Immigrants must adapt to new laws and ways of life, while hosts need to adjust to multicultural societies. Integration impacts many facets of life such as access to jobs, real state and public services and can be well approximated by the extent of spatial segregation of minority group residence. Here we conduct an extensive study of immigrant integration in 53 world cities by using Twitter language detection and by introducing metrics of spatial segregation. In this way, we quantify the Power of Integration of cities (their capacity to integrate diverse cultures), and characterize the relations between cultures when they act in the role of hosts and immigrants. https://arxiv.org/abs/1611.01056
