August recess has begun for Congress, but advocacy for immigration reform is in full swing. In this week’s Top Picks, I would like to shine a light on the National Immigrant Justice Center’s blog post on how border militarization would affect Midwesterners. Please excuse the delay from our normal Friday publishing schedule for Top Picks!
- America’s Voice reports on “Over 30 Advocates Arrested on Capitol Hill for Protesting Unjust Immigration Policies, House GOP Inaction on Path to Citizenship.”
- National Immigrant Justice Center blogs about “5 Reasons Midwesterners Should Care About Border Militarization.”
- In “The Immigration Debate Could Use a Healthy Dose of Fact,” for Immigration Impact, Walter Ewing answers a host of frequently asked questions on immigrants and immigration reform.
- Sojourners’ Jim Wallis writes about why political leaders haven’t passed immigration reform yet in his piece “So Much is at Stake: Reform and Race.”
Please email me or comment if you have any thoughts about this week’s Top Picks. Thank you for taking the time to visit our blog, and I look forward to sharing with you the best online blog posts on immigration and refugee issues.
