Boston immigrants meet with mayor at City Hall
Boston MA (Sep.23, 2005) Mayor Thomas Menino lauded the accomplishments of Boston's immigrants and expressed appreciation for the city's growing number of foreign-born residents during the sixth New Bostonians Community Day at City Hall on Thursday. "Boston is now a minority-majority city," Menino said in his welcome address to about 600 immigrants. Menino said one of every four Bostonians emigrated here from another country. Noting that speakers of some 140 languages live in Boston, he urged new immigrants to stay in touch with their heritage.
