California-based contractor said to have exploited Thai workers

A California-based labor contractor called Global Horizons has been found to be liable in federal court for discrimination against hundreds of Thai workers.  Workers were said to be subjected to physical abuse.  Workers were reportedly threatened by the point of a gun.  Global Horizons was ruled to have controlled the working conditions, where these individuals lived, what they could eat and where they could travel.

Immigrants do have various health care options in California

Many immigrants are badly in need of some sort of medical coverage. One young man who broke his arm did not choose to go immediately to the doctor out of concerns that it would be discovered that he and his mother had over stayed their visa. As a result of delay in medical care the physical damage to his arm is now permanent.

Immigrants remain skeptical concerning driver's license law

Though immigrant activists have welcomed laws granting driver's licenses in California to undocumented immigrants, many immigrants continue to express concerns that the driver's licenses may be used against them.  "I believe this license process is not secure," said one woman.

Supreme Court will not revive anti-immigration laws

The U.S. Supreme Court has decided against hearing cases concerning ordinances that federal courts had annulled.  Two municipalities had previously passed the laws in the apparent attempt to deal with what these localities felt were problems popping up due to immigration issues.
