Today, the Spanish-language press highlighted a protest in Georgia by members of the Ku Klux Klan against the walkers of the “Trail of Dreams” who advocate for the DREAM Act.

Recent developments indicate that the schism in the Republican Party over Latino outreach and immigration reform is beginning to widen. While some Republican lawmakers continue to use the immigration issue as a wedge to try to block progress on every major issue the Democratic Congress takes up—such as legislation designed to put Americans back to work—others within the GOP leadership are warning that such a strategy would doom the Party’s chances in a growing number of congressional districts and states, as well as the 2012 Presidential election.

Papers is an exciting new documentary that focuses on the unique challenges that approximately 65,000 undocumented youth graduating from high school every year in the U.S. face as they turn 18. Without the legal status necessary to secure their future in the United States, many of these youths are at risk to be exiled from the only country many of them have ever known as home. The film is produced by Graham Street Productions, in conjunction with Film Action Oregon and is premiering tonight at the E-Street Cinema in Washington, DC.

Henry Bonilla, a Texas Republican whose district ran along the Mexican border, won seven straight elections to the House by relying on retail politics in Hispanic communities where GOP candidates had rarely bothered to tread. He thrived in Congress and co-chaired the two Republican National Conventions that nominated George W. Bush. In a period when the party sought to telegraph a vision of diversity, however spotty its record, the effort yielded Hispanic votes in Texas and beyond. That was then.

At a town-hall meeting held by Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA) in Los Angeles, attendees pressured the congressman to lead the fight for comprehensive immigration reform in the House. Univision.com notes that the forum was held three days after a bill was introduced in the House that would deny citizenship to children born in the United States of undocumented parents.

21/02/10 a 12:01am por Maribel Hastings La falta de acción a nivel federal en pos de una reforma migratoria integral no sólo ha supuesto la continuidad de la incertidumbre de millones de familias en el país, sino que ha dado nuevos bríos a figuras anti inmigrantes que aprovechan la actual coyuntura para tratar de resucitar políticamente.… Continue »

Republicans are facing a major fork in the road on immigration, highlighted this week at CPAC (the major conservative conference in DC right now).

Does the GOP choose the backward-looking, anti-immigrant route led by former Congressman, now Senate candidate J.D. Hayworth, or the path toward real immigration solutions, led by Grover Norquist, who is supporting Hayworth’s primary opponent John McCain?

Arizona’s La Voz writes that representatives of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) have arrested 141 undocumented immigrants in Arizona in the last 30 days. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who announced several days ago that he plans to train 900 of his deputies to perform immigration enforcement exercises on the streets of Phoenix, said the arrests will continue. La Voz publishes statistics about the most recent arrests, including 35 undocumented immigrants arrested during routine traffic stops.
