  • BREAKING: House Passes Expanded Violence Against Women Act
    After a failed vote on a Republican-supported version of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) that took out many of the bill’s expanded protections, the Republican-controlled House passed the Senate version of VAWA that adds additional coverage for immigrant, LGBT, and Native American victims. The Senate passed the bill earlier in February, so now it heads to President Obama for his signature. Congress failed to reauthorize the law in 2012, making it the first time since VAWA went into effect in 1994 that the measure to protect domestic violence victims had been allowed to expire. Th....
  • A la espera de un retorno
    Más de 72 millones de personas en todo el mundo se ven obligadas a abandonar sus hogares e, incluso, sus países, según el último informe realizado por Cruz Roja.

  • Rival Immigration reform plans could ignite Capitol Hill fireworks
    The comprehensive immigration reform proposal spread out Jan. 29 in Las Vegas by President Obama could eventually put as many as 11 million undocumented immigrants, about 80 percent of whom are Hispanic, on a path to U.S. citizenship. It is could also light up the sky with an awesome display of political fireworks by the Fourth of July. While Obama’s 25-minute televised speech was seen and heard by millions and then regurgitated and analyzed for days by print as well as broadcast media, its message was clearly directed to those 535 members of Congress who must sign off befor....
  • Legalization: Who And Why?
    Washington, D.C.—Today, the Immigration Policy Center held a tele-briefing to discuss who the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. are and what lessons we've learned from previous broad legalization programs. The central question in the immigration reform debate for much of the American public will be how to create a pathway to legal status for the 11 million immigrants currenty living in the U.S. without authorization. How this pathway will be shaped turns on critical questions such as who are the unauthorized immigrants who would be attaining legal status? What would t....

  • Congressional Hispanic Caucus on Obama's Immigration Reform Speech
    Congressman Rubén Hinojosa (TX-15), Chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC): "There is no doubt, as President Obama pointed out, that the current immigration system is failing our country. We must find workable solutions for the 11 million undocumented and for the sake of our recovering economy. We applaud the president's leadership and are glad he is working toward delivering on his campaign promise. Immigration reform started as a bipartisan issue and with President Obama's leadership and positive reception of the Senate principles, we are confident that it will pass as a bipartis....
  • New Report Shows Record Immigration Enforcement Spending
    Washington, D.C — The Obama administration has made immigration its highest law enforcement priority, according to a report released today by the Migration Policy Institute.

  • Deferred Action for childhood arrivals
    The recently announced implementation of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) opens up a wonderful opportunity for young undocumented immigrants who meet the qualifying criteria, as it affords them an opportunity to obtain valid work authorization and not have to fear being placed in deportation proceedings. This is however merely a discretionary exercise of authority by USCIS (formerly INS), so DACA does not grant any status or lead to Permanent Residence (a “green card”). In summary, you satisfy the criteria for DACA if you: 1.Were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012; ....
