The State of Immigration Reform -- Updates From DC, California and Georgia
What Ethnic Media Need to Know
As pressure continues to mount for Congress to pass federal immigration reform, a number of states and counties across the country are passing their own immigration laws. These range from pro-immigrant laws in states like California to enforcement-oriented laws in states like Alabama and Georgia.
What can we expect from Congress on immigration reform? What can we learn from the success of California immigrant rights organizations in passing laws such as the TRUST Act, Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, and driver's licenses for the undocumented? And what is the current climate in Southern states like Georgia and Alabama two years after passing anti-immigrant laws?
