Considering the Republicans' inability to see the irony of holding a nativist attitude in a country built by immigrants and inhabited by people with ancestry of foreign dissent, the Democratic Party is proud to unveil an updated immigration platform.
I recently interviewed Harry DeMell, an immigration lawyer since 1977 and a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, about the current immigration crisis.
On Election Day, we have a duty and an obligation to vote for our friends, brothers, sisters and DREAMers who cannot vote. We must give our community a voice. We must elect a president that will defend these immigration initiatives and enact immigration reform with a path to citizenship.
The deathblow to xenophobia against Syrian refugees here was the actual identities of the attackers--virtually all of those involved, aside from the dead owner of the passport, were either French or Belgian.
I am sharing my secret in order to give Americans a face to place with the label "illegal immigrant." You never hear our stories because we live in fear of getting thrown out of our homes. We are not numbers or aliens. We are your friends and your neighbors.

New polling released by impreMedia and Latino Decisions finds that the GOP's image among Latino voters has significantly deteriorated since 2012. The poll reports that statements by GOP frontrunners Donald Trump and Ben Carson are negatively impacting the overall GOP brand.
In the United States, the immigrant story is part of the blueprint of our country. It disheartens me to see my community or any other culture under attack. Some presidential candidates do not seem to care that by promoting negative stereotypes, they are alienating one of the biggest voting blocs in America.
An anthem for an immigrant nation where crossing borders and cultures out of necessity, in hopes of greater opportunities, are as American as apple pie (which, by the way, was brought by British and Dutch immigrants.)
We have criminalized loyal and hard-working Americans, putting them behind bars in order to appease xenophobic hysteria rather than uphold the promises of freedom and hope that are meant to characterize the American ethos.
The immigration issue has roiled the Republican Party as its presidential candidates attempt to appeal to the conservative, anti-immigration wing of their party in order to win the nomination. But, as a consequence, the GOP is likely to pay a heavy price in the 2016 national elections.
The federal court decision blocking the president's executive actions on immigration wasn't the only significant judicial intervention in immigration policy in recent days.
