      THIS WEEK IN IMMIGRATION

      Why Kobach’s Lawsuit Against Deferred Action is Unlikely to Stand Up in CourtSore Loser, Jan Brewer, Continues Anti-Immigrant Crusade
      http://wfc2.wiredforchange.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=nwOTHzLoDvewwZlzt8rfPLAtKOXhnd7LKris Kobach’s official job title is Kansas Secretary of State. But he is better known for drafting—and being hired to defend in court—state and local immigration laws designed to make undocumented residents “self-deport.” His two most notorious undertakings are Arizona SB 1070 and Alabama HB 56, which have largely been eviscerated by federal courts. Yesterday, Kobach embarked on a new legal escapade.

      5 Ways DACA Renews the Conversation on Immigration Reform
      http://wfc2.wiredforchange.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=lofeSTGxEnhLIH5EsLSuXmWQfXRPKHaAThere’s no doubt that recent implementation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative is the biggest thing to happen in immigration law in many years. While most of the attention is currently focused on how to make it work, how to apply and how to work out the kinks, it’s important to take a macro view at the ways this program can actually renew the entire conversation on immigration reform.


      Immigration Law Curbs Foreign Student Entrepreneurship
      http://wfc2.wiredforchange.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=kwC9dHCGdawY5ALdxybtrrAtKOXhnd7LNearly everyone agrees that the U.S. immigration system should provide visas for entrepreneurs who want to start businesses in the U.S. and employ American workers. However, convoluted immigration laws make it difficult for some entrepreneurs to launch their business while they’re in school and remain lawfully in the U.S. after they graduate in order to run them. A new report by the Kauffman Foundation entitled Reforming Immigration Law to Allow More Foreign Student Entrepreneurs to Launch Job-Creating Ventures in the United States describes the obstacles student entrepreneurs’ face.

      Alabama Ruling Yet Another Rebuke to State Immigration Laws
      http://wfc2.wiredforchange.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=7jaQITqkLqWqnGkApviFobAtKOXhnd7LAs with the Supreme Court’s recent opinion on Arizona SB 1070, initial media coverage portrayed the (technically) mixed rulings on the Alabama and Georgia immigration laws as a split decision. But do not be fooled: yesterday’s opinions from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit represent a sweeping win for the immigrants’ rights movement and a crushing blow to the legal crusade led by Kris Kobach.

      How Deportations Devastate Families and Communities

      http://wfc2.wiredforchange.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=TZ3kkJQSkzzKWOeaxlzqkH9fwJW8QTkUIt goes without saying that unauthorized immigrants live in constant fear of deportation. After all, any chance encounter with U.S. immigration officials can leave an unauthorized immigrant behind bars and in removal proceedings. Less obvious, perhaps, is the impact that deportations have on families and communities.
