As extremist rhetoric increases behind the effort to deport the undocumented, I’d like to highlight a piece from Sojourners where Felipe Diosdado reveals how much of an impact his deportation will have on his family. Thousands of lives just like Felipe’s hang in the balance. Now that Congress is back in Washington, D.C., it is time for compassionate action and comprehensive reform.
- Though President Obama has announced his plan to delay executive action on immigration reform until after the November elections, “Conservative Lawmakers Are Doubling Down on Deporting DREAMers and Limiting Deferred Action” writes Amanda Peterson of Immigration Impact.
- While attempting to delay his deportation proceedings, Felipe Diosdado asks readers in Sojourners, “What are you Most Proud of?”
- “Pat Buchanan Says Immigrants Are More Dangerous Than ISIS” in attempts to stir up more anti-immigrant sentiment before November, Van Le from America’s Voice writes.
