      Latino GOP group: Steve King leading on immigration would kill the party’s 2012 chances

      "Somos Republicans, a Latino group from the Southwest, wrote an open letter to the future House GOP leadership on Tuesday asking it to reconsider putting Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) in charge of the House subcommittee on immigration and Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) in charge of the House Judiciary Committee.

      The group argues that King and Smith’s anti-illegal immigration rhetoric and policy ideas, which include a proposal to end birthright citizenship for the American-born children of illegal immigrants, would alienate Latino voters and ruin the Republican party’s chances of defeating President Obama in 2012." Washington Independent, Nov. 11, 2010.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints took its strongest stance yet on illegal immigration Thursday, calling on lawmakers in Utah and beyond to take a humane and comprehensive approach to reform while warning against any actions that would separate families." Salt Lake Tribune, Nov. 12, 2010.

      Coziness between jails, ICE worries immigrants

      "Immigrant advocates and some politicians find it disturbing that local officials work with ICE on identifying illegal immigrants.

      In New York, they say, it puts a city that owes its existence to immigrants in the deportation business and breeds fear among immigrants that any contact with authorities — even reporting crimes — could have severe consequences.

      "It is really not a good idea to have large segments of your community be afraid of law enforcement," said Nancy Morawetz, a professor at the New York University School of Law and part of its Immigrant Rights Clinic." AP, Nov. 11, 2010.

      "Every policy wonk in town is mulling the effects of the midterm shakeup. As a senior analyst at the Migration Policy Institute, Marc Rosenblum has his eye on immigration.

      Immigrant families in the ranks"The first U.S. casualty of the war in Iraq was Marine Lance Corp. Jose Gutierrez. Gutierrez was a Guatemalan orphan who made his way to the United States to find a better life. He joined the Marines to earn money for college and to support his sister still living in Guatemala. He was not a U.S. citizen at the time of his death, yet he was willing to sacrifice his life in the pursuit of a liberty he only briefly tasted." Kelly McCarthy, Nov. 11, 2010.

      Analysis of Oral Arguments in Flores-Villar v. United States

      "On Wednesday, the United States Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Flores-Villar v. United States, a case involving a constitutional challenge to gender distinctions in the rules for derivative citizenship. Basically, children born overseas who have one U.S.-citizen parent can obtain U.S. citizenship if the citizen parent had been physically present in the U.S. for a certain period of time before the child’s birth. If the citizen parent is the father, the period is five years; if it is the mother, the period is one year. Does this differentiation amount to unconstitutional gender-based discrimination? UC Davis law student Joanna Cuevas Ingram summarizes the oral argument and provides important insights. It looks like it will be a close decision, with only eight Justices participating (Justice Kagan has recused herself)." ImmigrationProf Blog, Nov. 12, 2010.
