It’s high time that rumors about immigrants and immigration reform were put to rest. Bloggers are helping to do that. This week, I’d especially like to point out the writing of Mary Giovagnoli, who goes after some of the most poorly reasoned fear-mongering.
- Writing at Immigration Impact, Mary Giovagnoli analyzes how the spread of misinformation and rumors has skewed views on immigrants and immigration reform in “Fear Mongering via Mexican Asylum Cases.”
- In “Steve King and the ‘Spell’ Cast From the 2012 Elections,” America’s Voice refreshes our memories of how immigration reform came to be.
- Beau Underwood of Sojourners writes of the importance of holding our tongues when appropriate in his post “Rep. Steve King: It’s Time to Tame the Tongue.”
Please email me or comment if you have thoughts about this week’s Top Picks. Thank you for taking the time to visit our blog, and I look forward to sharing the best online commentary on immigration and refugee issues every Friday. Have a good weekend!
