As the year comes to a close, immigration advocates are taking note of this year’s progress and looking forward to a renewed campaign in 2014. In this week’s edition of the Friday Top Picks, I’d like to highlight a post written by Aura Bogado which examines both the highs and lows of immigration reform in 2013.
- “Whatever Happened to Comprehensive Immigration Reform?” Colorlines’ Aura Bogado poses the question.
- Jennifer Scarborough and Lisa Koop of National Immigrant Justice Center write, “U.S. Reaches U Visa Cap in Less than 3 Months; Immigrant Victims left in Limbo.”
- Immigration Impact’s Paul McDaniel explains how, “Licensing Barriers Leave Immigrant Doctors Driving Cabs Instead of Practicing Medicine.”
- “Customs and Border Patrol Must Improve Its Woefully Inadequate Complaint System,” writes Jennifer Podkul of Women’s Refugee Commission.
- A post from America’s Voice outlines the highlights of 2013 with, “Immigration Reform: A Year in Review.”
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.
