San Francisco, San Jose and Fremont are among the top 10 best cities for immigrants, according to a new report by the research organization, New American Economy.

The report measures how well the country’s 100 largest cities integrate new immigrants by analyzing local policies and socioeconomic outcomes. It considered questions like, “how active are immigrants in a city’s workforce” and “how do law enforcement agencies treat immigrants?”
San Francisco, which ranked 5th, has strong government leadership and community resources for immigrants but could help improve their economic prosperity, according to the report.
San José, which ranked 7th, was recognized for its strong government leadership, economic empowerment, legal support and civic participation. It could improve job opportunities and livability — including healthcare, housing and education — for its immigrants, the report said.
