Immigration: A 50-State Issue

CLINIC and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops are hosting a conference on state and local immigration issues.  The conference will be held in Salt Lake City from January 11-13, 2012.  We will discuss methods for opposing enforcement initiatives and supporting comprehensive immigration reform. Workshops will include: strategies for communications and messaging; coalition building; and parish organizing and education. On topics such as:

South Carolina

On October 31, the Department of Justice announced it was filing a complaint and injunction against certain provisions in the recently passed South Carolina immigration law (Act No. 69).  Passed in June, the South Carolina law is set to go into effect on January 1st. The law requires police officers to question the immigration status of individuals stopped for other reasons if the officers suspect them to be undocumented.

CLINIC’s Alabama Resource Center

CLINIC’s State & Local Initiatives Project is pleased to announce its Alabama Resource Center, located on CLINIC’s website.  The site includes an analysis of the new law and the subsequent court rulings blocking parts of it, and talking points for advocacy on this and other state anti-immigrant measures.
