Perception, Policy, and Migration

The psychogeographies of immigration misplace efforts to help foreign-born populations.

Theme: Mesofact geography

Subject Article: "As Immigrants Settle Beyond City Limits, Help Is Hard to Find."

Other Links: "LI’s best days are yet to come."

Postscript: I mailed it in after introducing the relationship between the psychogeography of white suburbanites and perceptions of migration. I could write a book filled with different examples. That prospect overwhelmed me and I gave short shrift to the Long Island efforts to retain millennials. I chalk it up as another missed opportunity to push the conversation in a new direction.
