Immigration Reform, Health Care & Driver’s Licenses — Top Picks of the Immigration and Refugee Blogosphere

Published On: Donate

button_icon_top_picksFirst, I hope you’re able to celebrate this day honoring Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., who said in his letter from a Birmingham jail: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny …  Anyone who lives inside the United States can never be considered an outsider anywhere within its bounds.”

With that in mind, in this Monday’s Top Picks, I’d like to focus on the broad coalition of advocates for immigration reform.  Faith leaders, economists, labor organizers, and big business have all thrown their weight behind reform, adding to the movement’s momentum.  I’d especially suggest checking out Pili Tobar’s commentary on the diverse movement for immigration reform, and Ivone Guillen’s post on the new evangelical push for comprehensive immigration reform (CIR).

Please email me if you have comments or questions 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.
