    At the age of 21, Sergio has an undying love of politics. He has already interned for two state lawmakers and hopes to pursue a career in politics. He plans to commit himself to changing his community, but there is one catch: Sergio is in the country illegally; he can’t even vote. "It is something that I am really passionate about, but because of my position, it gets really frustrating," Sergio said. A student at San Diego State University, Sergio graduated from San Diego High School with a 4.3 GPA and entered SDSU with a full, privately funded scholarship.

    Immigration: An insolvent state hemorrhaging jobs enacts its version of the federal DREAM Act, holding out another carrot to illegal aliens by setting up a college scholarship fund for their children. Illinois' Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn on Monday illustrated why liberals tend to run governments and economies into the ground by signing into law Monday the Illinois DREAM (Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors) Act, a seemingly innocuous and compassionate piece of legislation that sets up scholarships for anyone with a Social Security number or taxpayer identification number. At a time when the Land of Lincoln is driving away...

    Presence in Mexico Based on a study done by Georgetown University, the number of immigrants from Lebanon and Syria living in Mexico exceeds 200,000. Along with Iran, Syria is one of Hezbollah’s strongest financial and political supporters, and Lebanon is its country of origin. In July of this year, Mexican authorities arrested Jameel Nasr in Tijuana, Baja California. Nasr was alleged to be tasked with establishing the Hezbollah network in Mexico and throughout South America. In April of last year, the arrest of Jamal Yousef – in New York City – exposed a weapons cache of 100 M- 16 assault...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Obama administration on Monday sued to block enforcement of Alabama's new immigration law, widely considered to be the toughest measure in the United States to try to crack down on illegal immigrants. The law, known as H.B. 56, was signed by Republican Governor Robert Bentley in June and is due to take effect on September 1. Civil rights groups brought a separate lawsuit challenging the law about a month ago.

We will be adding other people to – and removing people from – the grid as these levels of interest shift. Why these categories? The 12 categories on this grid deal with the vast majority of problems with current immigration policies that grant more than 1 million permanent work visas to immigrants each YEAR, and which allow an estimated 7 million jobs in...

    OAKLAND -- It's been two years since Oakland leaders authorized a multipurpose municipal identification card designed to help illegal immigrants, transgender people and the urban poor. The biggest problem is the debit function, which has proved to be complicated, complex and costly. The SF Chronicle says the plan was to give illegal immigrants and the poor an ID card as well as allow transgender people a way to prove who they are without a specified gender.

    Following through on a campaign promise, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law Monday easing access to privately funded financial aid for undocumented college students. He also signaled that he was likely to back a more controversial measure allowing those students to seek state-funded tuition aid in the future. Assemblyman Gil Cedillo (D-Los Angeles), author of the private financial aid measure, described it as an important but incremental step toward expanding opportunities for deserving students who were brought to the U.S. illegally through no choice of their own. Cedillo is pressing ahead with a more expansive measure that would make certain...

    Jerry Brown Eases Path For Undocumented College Students To Receive Aid July 25, 2011 Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Monday allowing undocumented college students to access private financial aid for college, calling the new law “another piece of an investment in people.” But he said he was not yet ready to commit to signing a second piece of the Dream Act, which would provide public funding for those students. Brushing over the politics of illegal immigration during a ceremony at the Los Angeles City College library, Brown talked about the bill within the broader context of maintaining education funding during...

    (CNN) -- America's immigration system is broken, but only a bipartisan political movement can fix it, President Barack Obama said Monday. "The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting, I promise you, not just on immigration reform. But that's not how our system works. That's not how our democracy functions," Obama told the National Council of La Raza. Speaking at the organization's annual conference in Washington, Obama said passing immigration reform measures will require support from both sides of the aisle in Congress. "Let's be honest, I need a dance partner here, and the floor is empty,"...

    PHARR — The Mission family came to the church as all the other families had, pursuing guidance in their lives. In these families’ cases, the guidance wasn’t spiritual. It was to navigate another great mystery for many: U.S. immigration law. Each month, Pharr United Methodist Church hosts a free clinic for families pursuing immigration law advice, under the umbrella of Justice for Our Neighbors, a faith-based group that provides education and counseling to immigrants. The church, at 119 E. Kelly Ave., funds the program through grants, but participants do not need to be members or join to receive the free...

He obtained a Washington driver's license weeks before his Oregon license was to expire on his 30th birthday earlier this year.

    On Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee voted 19-11 to pass Rep. Bob Goodlatte’s (R-VA) SAFE Act to abolish the Diversity Visa Lottery. The bill will now go before the full House. Most Americans do not even know that we have a lottery to give out Visas, but the rest of the world knows. In 2009, more than 15 million applications for the Visa Lottery were filled online. The only requirement is a high school diploma or some equivalency. The immigrants are selected by simply put the applications in a lottery. 50,000 Diversity Immigrant Visas are then granted random chance. John...

    A Jamaican immigrant's story of redemption convinced a judge he should be an American citizen - even though he killed his wife. Vernon Lawson, a Vietnam veteran, stabbed his wife to death in 1985 and served more than 13 years in prison. While behind bars, he kicked his drug and alcohol problems, got his GED and earned a bachelor's degree. Lawson was released from prison in 1998 and soon began getting treatment for post traumatic stress disorder. In 2006, he applied to become a citizen and was turned down because of the manslaughter conviction. The Marine's lawyers argued that as...

    The United States is a country that has been peopled largely by vast surges of migration -- from the British Isles in the 18th century, from Ireland and Germany in the 19th century, from Eastern and Southern Europe in the early 20th century, and from Latin America and Asia in the last three decades. Going back in history, almost no one predicted that these surges of migration would begin -- and almost no one predicted that they would stop when they did. Thus when the 1965 Immigration Reform Act was passed, almost no one predicted that we would have massive...

    If you thought the do-it-yourself anti-immigrant schemes couldn’t get any more repellent, you were wrong. New laws in Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina are following — and in some ways outdoing — Arizona’s attempt to engineer the mass expulsion of the undocumented, no matter the damage to the Constitution, public safety, local economies and immigrant families. The laws vary in their details but share a common strategy: to make it impossible for people without papers to live without fear. They give new powers to local police untrained in immigration law. They force businesses to purge workforces and schools to check...
