    Today, the U.S. Senate overwhelmingly voted to pass immigration by a vote of 68-32, fulfilling the call and dreams of American and immigrant communities across the country. All throughout the corners of America, we celebrate this monumental step the Senate has taken to finally pass historic immigration reform. SEIU was founded by immigrant janitors over 90 years ago, and immigrants have been an intricate part of SEIU's, and America's, history. We're thrilled that our country is steps closer to finally enacting historic, commonsense immigration reform that is worthy of our values.

    Immigration: The president tells a border state U.S. senator that if we beef up border protection Democrats will lose the bargaining chip for comprehensive immigration reform. Forget national sovereignty — sue Arizona! As the Obama administration prepares to sue the state of Arizona to block its copycat enforcement of federal immigration law, Arizona Republican Sen. Jon Kyl reveals that in a private meeting President Obama put his party's agenda above the nation's sovereignty. Last Friday, Kyl told the audience at a North Tempe Tea Party town hall meeting: "I met with the president in the Oval Office (regarding securing the...

    ELCA NEWS SERVICE April 27, 2009 Lutherans, Others to Mark May 12 Anniversary of Iowa Immigration Raid 09-098-SH CHICAGO (ELCA) -- As the one-year anniversary of a massive raid at a meatpacking plant nears, spiritual leaders in the northeastern Iowa town of Postville are urging Americans to press for comprehensive immigration reform. They're also calling on individuals and communities to wear or display red ribbons across the country on May 12, the anniversary of the raid in Postville at Agriprocessors, once the nation's largest producer of kosher meat. "Immigration raids are foolish. They traumatize families and children. They break families...

    snip Given California's political and demographic realities, abolishing the supermajority budget requirement by constitutional convention is probably the state's only realistic option, if it wants to avoid these annual legislative trainwrecks. But let's be clear: that would be treating the symptons, not the underlying disease--which is that California is split between a white, rural, conservative Republican bloc and an urban, largely nonwhite, liberal Democratic bloc that frankly want nothing to do with each other. No such state is ever likely to have a healthy or functional politics, no matter what kind of institutional arrangements one can devise.

    MCALLEN - The Border Patrol checkpoint on a remote stretch of South Texas ranchland was the ideal route for a drug trafficking ring to move tons of marijuana. To make sure their product got through, traffickers paid $1.5 million to U.S. Border Patrol agent Juan Alfredo Alvarez, 35, to wave trucks loaded with a ton or more of marijuana through checkpoints outside Hebbronville, according to a plea bargain Alvarez agreed to earlier this month. As Mexican drug cartels have transformed the Texas-Mexico border into one of the major transport corridors for marijuana, cocaine and heroin, traffickers have stepped up their...
