All eyes are on the highly polarized House of Representatives as debate over immigration reform continues. In this week’s Top Picks, I would especially like to lift up Amanda Peterson Beadle’s piece on faith groups and immigration reform, and Pili Tobar’s piece on reform and the House GOP.
- Michelle Mancuso recounts “How America’s Immigration Laws Broke My Heart and Opened My Eyes” in her post for the National Immigrant Justice Center.
- Amanda Peterson Beadle, writing for Immigration Impact, maps out how “Faith Groups Make the Religious Argument for Immigration Reform.”
- “With Expectations for Reform Sky-High, is the House GOP Serious About Immigration Reform or Merely Play-Acting?” asks Pili Tobar in her post for America’s Voice.
- In her piece “Immigration Reform Advocates Rally Outside House Buildings, Urging Members to Enact Reform,” Ivone Guillen of Sojourners recounts how hundreds of advocates made their voices heard in the nation’s capital.
Please email me or comment if you have any thoughts about this week’s Top Picks. Thank you for taking the time to visit our blog, and I look forward to bringing you the best online commentary on immigration and refugee issues.
