Obama, Executive Action, and Reform — Top Picks of the Immigration and Refugee Blogosphere

Stand for Welcome Kid Small

Last night, President Obama paved the way for millions of people to “come out of the shadows and get right with the law,” with his executive action. President Obama protected millions of families from being torn apart, and refocused America’s deportation efforts on “felons, not families. Criminals, not children. Gang members, not a mother who’s working hard to provide for her kids.” We applaud the actions taken by President Obama to address our broken immigration system, and we thank him for his courage to give a voice to so many who, before yesterday, were voiceless. I would like to highlight this piece from Sojourners’ Jim Wallis that best explains that this executive action put people before politics.

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