$1 million will go to naturalize immigrants in Napa County

April 24, 2013

The Napa Valley Community Foundation on Tuesday announced it would invest $1 million over the next three years to help the county's legal immigrants become U.S. citizens. The lush wine region is heavily dependent on immigrant labor: Last year's analysis found that immigrants annually account for as much as $1 billion of the region's gross domestic product.
