As August comes to an end, supporters of immigration reform are focusing on several events aimed at taking the movement to the next level. In this week’s edition of the Friday Top Picks, I’d like to highlight Robert Creamer’s piece on why he believes immigration reform is on the horizon.
- Van Le of America’s Voice offers analysis as “Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) Becomes 24th House Republican to Support Citizenship; Spencer Bachus (R-AL) Reiterates Support.”
- In “Marching Then, Marching Now: Civil Rights, Human Rights and Immigration Reform,” Eliseo Medina connects the modern immigration movement with the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.
- Writing in the Huffington Post, Robert Creamer explains the “Top Five Reasons Why Immigration Reform is Likely to Pass This Year.”
- Gebe Martinez, writing at America’s Voice, talks about “Immigration Reform Summer: Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Dream Pursued by Immigration Reform Marchers.”
- Mary Giovagnoli of Immigration Impact explains how “ICE Policy on Parental Rights Addresses Long Overdue Problem in Immigration System.”
