CLINIC compiles a free Immigration News Bulletin of immigration-related news articles of interest to our network on a regular basis. Every Friday, CLINIC will post the three articles most popular with its readers. Here are this week’s top stories.
- CLINIC extends its thoughts and prayers to those affected by the shootings at the American Civic Association in Binghamtom, NY, last Friday, in which fourteen people, including the gunman, were killed. (David Crary and Michael Hill, “Immigrant Families’ Dreams Shattered by Bullets,” Miami Herald, 4/5/09)
- According to a survey released Tuesday by the Pew Hispanic Center, fewer than half of all Hispanics living in the United States believe they will be treated fairly by police or judicial system. (Hope Yen, “Survey: Hispanics Skeptical of Police Fairness,” Washington Post, 4/7/09)
- Some churches and law enforcement agencies in Utah have expressed concern over the state’s new anti-immigration laws, which will go into effect July 1. The Salt Lake City Police Department has said it will not participate, arguing that the new laws amount to a form of racial profiling. (Whit Johnson, “Immigration Law has Utah Church Leaders Concerned,” KSL News Radio, 4/7/09)
