For better or worse, immigration reform affected by politics

Virtually every politician who has a say in the matter of immigration has a strong opinion on it. These opinions are typically formed over a long period of time and are influenced by a variety of factors. Lawmakers who immigrated themselves tend to be more understanding of the plight of families seeking citizenship. Others might have had personal experience that leads them to oppose any measures that would make it easier for immigrants to live in the United States legally. 

California anti-retaliation proposals meant to help immigrants

There are two proposals making their way through the California Senate.  The bills have been passed in the California Senate Judiciary Committee and at least in theory would protect immigrant workers from threats and exploitation.

Jailing of immigrants contributing to overcrowding of jails

A Center for Juvenile and Criminal Justice study suggests that the detaining of non-criminals accused of immigration violations in California leads to overcrowding of prisons.  This none-too-surprising conclusion may suggest that Immigrations and Customs Enforcement practice of placing arresting individuals on hold until the immigration status of those arrested is ascertained is creating a number of unintended consequences.

Employers helping employees obtain citizenship

We are seeing more and more employers doing what they can to assist their employees obtain citizenship.  Companies frequently work with immigrant advocates in California in an attempt to make certain employees can legally remain within this country.
