What We Missed

What We Missed, for first time viewers, is a section on our blog (inspired by Feministing) in which we talk about the current events issues immigrant youth might find interesting. Consider it a quick catch-up into everything that’s happened in immigration this week.


 
First of all, we’re proud New Yorkers today: the city plans to invest $18 million in helping DACA applicants find jobs.

The Foreign 500? The Washington Post reports that more than half of the United States’ top companies have immigrant founders, including Google, Yahoo, and eBay. Hmm… kinda makes you wonder about those claiming immigrants are bad for the economy…

How the iconic song, “God Bless America,” wouldn’t have been written without ‘unskilled immigrants.‘ You can mention this the next time your local politician suggest we should focus on only immigrants who come to the US with PhD’s.

Undocumented and going over the border voluntarily? That seems like the scariest thing in the world, but that’s exactly what these three amazing undocumented heroes (and shero!) did to raise awareness for immigrants within the US who have been separated from their families due to deportations.

Maybe that’s why the word ‘Amnesty’ is losing its emotional punch in political debates. Hopefully this means more Americans understand immigrants are an integral part of the American Dream.

Finally, local sweeps in jails confirm the ICE has been lying all along – many undocumented immigrants in jail are there with no criminal records.
