President Obama is facing pressure from all sides to take action on immigration reform after Congress failed to move forward on the issue before the August recess. In this week’s edition of top picks, I’d like to highlight a piece from America’s Voice demonstrating that it is time for members of Congress to think of individuals most impacted by their inaction on immigration reform instead of their own re-election. With legal backing, and the well-being of thousands in the balance, there is no excuse for inaction.
- “136 Law Professors Say President Has Legal Authority to Act on Immigration” through prosecutorial discretion. Mark Noferi of Immigration Impact explains.
- Instead of opposing executive action until after mid-term elections, “Rep. Louis Gutierrez Says Dems Should Let Obama ‘Do The Right Thing’ on Immigration.”Van Le with America’s Voice reports.
- Immigration Impact writes that “New Reports Examine Who Might Benefit from Immigration Administrative Action.”
Please comment if you have any thoughts about this week’s Top Picks. Thank you for taking the time to visit this blog, and I look forward to sharing the best online commentary on immigration and refugee issues.
