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.
- The New York Times profiles an immigrant family of four that is living in Queens, NY. The parents and daughter, who are college educated, are undocumented, while the son has U.S. citizenship. (David Gonzalez, “A Family Divided By 2 Worlds, Legal and Illegal ,” New York Times, 4/25/09)
- The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case about an Albanian asylum seeker who was ordered deported after he overslept and missed his asylum hearing. (The Associated Press, “Court to Consider Case of Immigrant Who Overslept,” Washington Post, 4/27/09)
- When Congress starts to discuss immigration reform, the debate about new temporary guest worker programs may end up killing any potential bill. The issue splits Democrats, who do not support the creation of any new temporary guest worker program, and Republicans, who do. (Daniel Gonzalez and Dan Nowicki, “Labor Battle Looming on Immigration ,” The Arizona Republic, 4/29/09)
