| | Comments (2)

Migra Matters has a great post on the SAVE Act House Republicans Move Forward on Shuler-Tancredo Bill.

H.R. 4408 Must Be Stopped~ Call to Action at Generation 1.5.

Dream Act Texas: Urgent: Please help stop HR.4088 "The Republicans have pushed this bill to vote even though it has not been evaluated in committee. It is urgent that everyone contact their representative." Also read about the University of Houston and their deplorable treatment of students in need of financial aid.

Read about the SAVE Act and the fact that Congress can't SAVE the nation or themselves with latest immigration reform at Latina Lista.

Make sure and contact your representatives to stop the SAVE Act.  It takes two minutes to write your representative, but the effects last a lifetime. - visit Damn Mexicans blog to watch the videos there and if you're a filmographer or just have a video camera make a video and change the world. (video contest site is Movement Vision Lab.)

No Border Wall Walk- Day 5 or The Day of Pilgrimage over at Smart Borders.

The beginning of today’s march was a pilgrimage. It was a pilgrimage from the beautiful river to the hot pavement of industrial parks south of McAllen, a pilgrimage through the small land-grant town of Granjeno past welcoming gas stations, a journey from our lowest numbers to our biggest turnout for the walk thus far.

Judge calls immigration officials' decision 'beyond cruel' at Just News. Just another story of cruelty against detained migrants.

DMI Blog gives us the Congressional Middle-Class Scorecards and Tim Walz stating the same thing we find in the Movement Vision Lab video - that people are being told to pull themselves up by their bootstraps, but many don't have the boots to begin with.

Para Justicia y Libertad! asks Could the Republican Party Win Back the Latino Vote?

In Hate Groups Funding Ads Pitting Latinos Against Blacks Of América speaks on ads aiming to vilify Latino migrants. We find that these ads come from another Roy Beck (Numbers USA) group. It's strange just how many groups these larger groups (FAIR, Numbers USA, etc.) create to push out messages. There are so many it's hard to keep track.

A blog I recently discovered is titled Pray for the Dead and Fight Like Hell for the Living. This blog posts on the movie Intimidad.

The documentary tells the story of Ceci and Camilo over a four year period in their young adult lives. The couple leave their baby daughter with family members in their southern Mexico hometown and head north looking for work. Like Okies in a John Steinbeck novel, they are migrating with the hope of a better life and a slice of the [north]American dream.
