Pro-Migrant Round-up

| | Comments ()
Kyle has given me the opportunity to post the pro-migrant round-up each day so hopefully all goes well.  Before I post today's entries I just want to thank everyone for the wonderful work you do.  Let me know if I missed anyone and please critique any errors. - symsess (American Humanity)

American Humanity posts on Mayor Lou Barletta, Hazleton's 'English only' mayor running for congress.

Damn Mexicans gives us some information on John Derbyshire who previously violated his visa and is pushing for hard lined punishment for anyone else that does the same - well, if they're from south of the border that is.

Dream Act Texas talks about Julie Myers and her 'teams of terror' working to scare migrants across six states. We have every reason to doubt Julie's intentions as she thinks white people dressing as black convicts is 'original' and deserving of an award.

Eristic ragemail talks about NAFTA and immigration. In Tuesday's debate this was discussed, but only in terms of how it effects the U.S. Hugo dives in to the effects of NAFTA on Mexico. You can also visit a previous Migra Matters post for more information.

Immigration List's feature story details the decline of Republicans who have based their campaigns on anti-migrant rhetoric. We've seen both in last year's elections and in the current primaries that voters don't buy in to the hate.

Justice and Journalism's post titled "No correlation between immigration and incarceration" defends migrants against the claims that they are more likely to commit crimes.

Long Island Wins references the same article found on Justice and Journalism exclaiming "Immigrants Up: Crime Down.

I believe John over at Nonviolent Migration is in Brownsville, TX along with Matthew over at Smart Borders. In his most recent post he tells us of a speech he gave honoring his students for their participation in a Martin Luther King essay contest.

Matthew over at Smart Borders also tells us of a speech he gave and of his belief that everyone wants to to good “they're just looking for an excuse.” I believe this is true and there are many wonderful people here who have found theirs.

Pro Inmigrant asks "Are we waiting to change the world or change ourselves to change the world?"

Tiny Cat Pants links to a report that show people on the lower end of the economic scale are more supportive of a path to citizenship in a post titled "We're All In It Together.

Immigration Prof Blog asks "Is John McCain eligible to be president?"
