Immigration Reform, H1-B Visas & More — Top Picks of the immigration and Refugee Blogosphere

Published On: Donate

button_icon_top_picksI want to let you know that Top Picks will move to Fridays for the duration of the immigration reform debate. That’s just to free up space on Mondays, when there are already frequently several posts, including the legislative update by our panel of experts.

So—this Memorial Day we’ll have much to celebrate. The Senate Judiciary Committee passed the immigration reform bill S.744 this past Tuesday with a 13-5 vote; now it’s up to the whole Senate.  While there’s still a long journey ahead, there’s a lot to be proud of in what has been achieved thus far.  In this week’s Top Picks, I would especially like to lift up Jim Wallis’s piece on the triumph of immigration reform in the committee, and Pili Tobar’s commentary on what to expect next.

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 bringing you the best online commentary on immigration and refugee issues every Monday here on Redefining Welcome.
