You may or may not agree with their politics, but no one can challenge their chops as attorneys. Yet both of them are saying very dumb things about DHS executive actions on immigration, announced by the White House.
Obama's recently announced Immigration Accountability Executive Actions are targeted at making the legal immigration system work as well as it can until Congress fixes it. A functional business immigration system will boost the economy by generating tax revenue, adding billions to the GDP and creating jobs for American workers.
Victims of domestic abuse deserve international protection, and hopefully with more pressure to reform the refugee system and more funding being placed in NGOs, they can receive it.
Yes. The Pilgrims were illegal immigrants. They landed in America without the permission of the American Indians, who owned the land by virtue of resi...

President Obama's recent speech fits a historic and racist framework through which we can describe the exclusion and banishment of people with felonies who are detained and deported. Even while some parents of citizens will be eligible for relief, parents with felonies and their families will remain vulnerable.
The boundary separating white Anglo upscale school districts from the burgeoning non-white and non-Anglo populations in downscale communities is fast becoming a flashpoint inside America.
The world is more complicated. The knots are somehow knottier. Bringing in a council of concerned citizens to patiently untie the Gordian knot of politics may take longer. But, in the end, consent is mightier than the sword.
Yes, apparently that's a new word now: "cromnibus." Now, some, editorially-speaking, have been insisting on "CRomnibus" or "Cromnibus," but for the time being here, we've decided that it doesn't qualify for proper-name status in any way.
As long as I have been able to vote elected officials at the local, state and federal level have struggled with what to do about immigration. When I u...
The time to act on immigration is now and not just because the President is taking executive action. The time is now because, today, there are still millions of families living in fear, there are still billions of dollars in tax revenue to be able to be contributed.
The workers covered by the president's orders already have paid a price, however. They know that any day, their families may be torn apart. They work hard and pay taxes but the risk of being caught and deported keeps them on the fringes of society.
Supporting a policy that has strong, majority support not only from Latinos or Asians but Americans overall isn't pandering to anyone. It's called democracy.
Immigration reform has been endorsed by Presidents Bush and Obama, the US Chamber of Commerce, and leaders in law enforcement and still nothing.
Most of all, we are thankful for those immigrants -- legal and otherwise -- who at the behest of agribusinesses toiled long hours in the fields, laboring for low wages, and doing work that most Americans would not.
The President's decision to grant relief to millions of immigrants in this country, despite Republican threats, shows our members that their voices -- their families -- matter. Millions of lives will change from this one brave act, and it's the kind of courage that will inspire our members to vote again.
