President Obama’s speech today begins at 3:50 PM ET. Why Nashville? From the Washington Post:
The city has one of the fastest growing immigrant populations in the United States, including Mexicans, Burmese, and as many as 11,000 Kurds lured by the modest cost of living, job opportunities and an international community. One out of every eight people in Nashville was born abroad and 16 percent of the city’s residents speak another language at home, according to the 2010 U.S. Census.
