Advocates spent the August recess promoting immigration reform and putting pressure on lawmakers. In this week’s edition of Top Picks, which ordinarily appears on Fridays, I’d like to highlight Gordon Whitman’s post on immigrants who are anxiously awaiting reform.
- In “Immigrants Take Big Risks to Get Their Stories Out” Gordon Whitman compiles several firsthand accounts of the fears and struggles that face current immigrants.
- The Hill’s Javier Ortiz explains why “Immigration Must be High Priority when Congress Returns to Washington.”
- America’s Voice discusses the ironic names of two recent pieces of legislation in “Law Enforcement Officials Take A Stand Against Secure Communities and SAFE Act.”
- Writing in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Lynn Tramonte of America’s Voice explains how an “Ohio Immigration Case Highlights Need for Real Immigration Reform.”
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 share with you the best online commentary on immigration and refugee issues.
