‘Qué Pasa’ in Immigration: Criminalization in AZ; Effects of the March; Surprise RNC Visit

Share This:

The Spanish-language press leads today with the Arizona House of Representatives’ passage of a bill that would criminalize undocumented immigrants, but the effects of last Sunday’s March for America and other local events for immigration reform–including a protest outside Republican National Committee headquarters–continue to receive a significant amount of coverage.

Criminalization in Arizona. The state Senate versión of the same bill passed last February. Governor Jan Brewer (R) has indicated she will sign the bill once the two versions are reconciled. La Opinión and EFE have more on the story.

Effects of the March. Various outlets continue to revisit last Sunday’s march in Washington, D.C., and its effects. Sample headlines:

Mundo Hispánico (Atlanta): ¡Obama, escucha, estamos en la lucha! (“Listen up, Obama, we’re in it to win it!”)

La Prensa (Orlando): “Yes they could” 

La Opinión: “Turnaround for immigration reform?”
