Practical and emotion-free proposals to immigration issues are hard to come by these days.

But National Review and The Atlantic writer Reihan Salam has taken up the challenge. In his new book, the son of Bangladeshi immigrants suggests a compromise: an amnesty for long-time undocumented immigrants coupled with a merit-based system that would benefit high-skilled immigrants.

US appeals court rules against Trump on DACA immigration program

A U.S. appeals court in California ruled on Thursday that President Donald Trump’s administration must continue a program begun under former President Barack Obama that protects hundreds of thousands of immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children.

Los Angeles- Bakewell Media has brought it on once again. I’m speaking of the 13th Annual Taste of Soul. This huuuuge festival, the largest street festival in Los Angeles, and perhaps, in the nation for that matter, was held on Saturday, October 20th.

Immigration 101: What is “Public Charge” and What Changes is the Trump Administration is Proposing?

The Trump Administration is seeking to dramatically limit the ability of working-class immigrants to enter the U.S. and hamper their ability to remain, by making it easier to bar immigrants from the U.S. if they are likely to need help. The proposed “public charge” change could prohibit immigrants from obtaining permanent residency or from entering the country if they make less than $73,550 for a family of five.
