Immigration

Alameda County is the most diverse county in the Bay Area and the fourth most diverse county in the U.S. We are home to over 1.6 million people; nearly one in three of them is an immigrant.  That’s over 526,000 residents - naturalized U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, temporary migrants, humanitarian migrants, and foreign-born residents – that call Alameda County home.

Immigrants contribute substantially to the local, state, and national economy as workers, job creators, tax payers, homeowners, and consumers.  They are integral to the social fabric of our county and nation.

However, increasing fear, anxiety and stress about arrest, family separation and possible deportation are creating physical and mental health impacts that have been deemed toxic and traumatic for undocumented and documented immigrants alike.

This website is designed to provide resources for all residents to use and share where they work, live, and spend time.
