Comprehensive Reform, Family Unity & DACA — Top Picks of the Immigration and Refugee Blogosphere

Published On: Donate

button_icon_top_picksThere is important movement this week on comprehensive immigration reform, as a bipartisan group of eight senators unveil their plan for reform at a Capitol Hill news conference at 2:30 pm.

You can watch the press conference live on CNN Live, and expect analysis from LIRS later in the day.  In addition, today Maria Odom, the Ombudsperson of the US Citizenship and Information Service, will visit the LIRS offices in Baltimore to discuss the potential impact of comprehensive immigration reform and our work with migrants, refugees, and immigrant detainees.

This past week, as we celebrated Martin Luther King Day and the second inauguration of President Obama, immigration reform continued to move closer to reality.  This edition of the Monday Top Picks includes key steps forward for reformers, as well as in-depth commentary on issues such as family unity.

Please email me or leave a comment if you have any thoughts or questions about this week’s Top Picks.  Thank you for taking the time to visit our blog today, and I look forward to bringing you the best online commentary on immigration and refugee issues every Monday.
