California farmers hoping for immigration reform

Some advocates note that California growers are facing a labor shortage in large part because immigration laws fail to allow for the existence of enough legal workers. It is in part due to this that farm leaders rallied on April 28 to call for Congress to put in place legislation that would create a pathway to citizenship.

The need for skilled foreign workers is great

A large number of U.S. employers would like to obtain more highly skilled foreign workers, but to do this they must first submit visa applications to a processing center. One such processing center is located in California. Ironically, many of these workers have advanced degrees that were obtained from American universities, and the education these people have received comes to no use for the U.S. if they are not allowed to work here.

Mother of 2-year-old faces deportation due to shoplifting charge

A woman was accused of shoplifting from a Long Beach clothing store. After pleading guilty to the misdemeanor offense, she still was detained at the Lakewood Sheriff's Station and later transferred to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office.

Trust Act credited with reducing immigration holds

It has been reported that fewer immigrants have been arrested by California authorities and turned over the federal government. This is due to a new law called the Trust Act that was designed to hold fewer individuals for deportation. When the law was originally passed in January, however, it was not clear how much of a drop that there would be.

Deportation can lead to separation of parents from children

A 10-year-old Los Angeles girl whose father was facing deportation spoke to Pope Francis on March 26 at the Vatican concerning her personal situation. Two days later her father was released from an immigration detention center on $5,000 bond for which he was being held following his arrest and conviction for a DUI.
