The Day the Pro-Migrant Movement Begins to Take Massachusetts Back

| | Comments ()
There's a lot happening, today, and there's a lot happening.  So much so that I don't feel like I can write about it.

First, with the help of and we will be delivering over 2000 petition signatures, the majority of which are from the Boston area, to Mayor Menino asking him to take the final steps to end S-Comm, now. Please sign both petitions, linked to above, if you haven't done so already. This comes off the heels of Springfield, Massachusetts, the home of the infamous Joe Arpaio, passing a city council resolution against S-Comm. Believe it or not, has been doing some of the best and most consistent reporting on all of this.

Also today will be a hearing on in-state tuition for undocumented youth in Massachusetts. The Student Immigrant Movement has been working hard on this for some time, and they're more organized than I've ever seen them. I hope we can get S-Comm out of Boston so we can start focusing on offense instead of defense. That's all I have time to write, right now, but if you want to follow me throughout the day @kyledeb on twitter is probably the best place to look.
