How can urban planning play a supporting role in the integration of newcomers into the local community?

my initial thoughts relate to indirect benefits, such as, the provisions of affordable housing can help newcomers achieve economic stability.
when i say newcomers, i am leaning more towards international migrants.

Build migrant ghettos at otherwise underdeveloped transit stops. (Editorial note: I am not a planner.)

On the migrant line of new comers I go with the old fashioned China Town idea. If you have a neighborhood of similar mind migrants then they support each other plus the city gets some culture. A lot of the old migrant communities had affordable housing, community centers for advice and services, and of course local restaurants, markets, etc.
