U.S. Immigration Reform: May 2009 Archives

Movable Type ate a post I spent hours writing on Sonia Sotomayor's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, last night.  Today, I just want to get things down. 

One thing I've been meaning to get down for sometime is an article that was written in The Hill about the prospects for U.S. migration reform

Dick Durbin, the U.S. Senator from Illinois, specifically says he has the votes to pass the DREAM Act, but that he prefers include it as part of broader comprehensive migration reform.
Thank God David Neiwert uses his megaphone over at Crooks and Liars to speak the truth on U.S. migration policy.  Neiwert always does an excellent job standing against nativism and racism. 

Today, what stood out to me about his post on E-Verify, though, is that he educated people about unsexy policy speak.  It's unavoidable in the U.S.'s broken and complex migration system, and it's good to see Neiwert educating his broad progressive audience about these issues.
