What We Missed

political_chachaWhile Congress plays the political cha-cha (not to be confused with the actual cha-cha, which is fun and constructive), a few immigration-related stories caught our eye this week that we wanted to share:

What We Missed:

1) Rep. King’s hateful comments towards immigrants made headlines, and elicited this amazing reaction from some immigrant youth.

2) The average salary of a border patrol agent is 55k per year. According to CBP.gov, the are eligible to make 75k per year after three years. Lets all take a moment to let that sink in…

3) The “Dream Nine” who crossed the border back into Mexico to protest US immigration policies are back in the US are are being detained in Arizona.

4) The Department of Homeland Security says they are finalizing new guidelines for visa petitions that will treat same-sex couples the same as heterosexual applicants.

5) Think Progressive released a report outlining how immigration could save Detroit.
