Today, the Hispanic press highlights a study from the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) indicating that immigration does not depress the wages of American workers. According to the report, titled “Immigration and Wages,” Department of Labor statistics demonstrate that the arrival of 9.5 million immigrant workers between 1994 and 2007 resulted in native-born workers receiving a wage increase of $3.68/week. 

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raid targeting 14 transit companies in Houston resulted in the arrest of 81 undocumented immigrants and 22 U.S. residents suspected of human trafficking, as reported in El Financiero and on Univision.com.
