Today marks International Migrants Day, a day to be commemorated and celebrated by all in support of immigrants and their contributions to our communi...
There seems to be an interesting round of speculation taking place in Washington over whether Speaker John Boehner will move on immigration reform in the House next year, and (if so) when he would do so.
Speaking just miles away from Angel Island, President Obama reminded us about one of the defining promises of America that we are a nation where no matter who you are, what you look like or where you come from, you can make it if you try.
GLAAD is among a number of LGBT organizations that stand with the immigrant rights community as part of a broad coalition that is fighting to ensure comprehensive reform and a path to citizenship.
GOP lawmakers need to take seriously the job of expanding the party beyond just a majority of their own district to a majority of the nation. And President Obama has just given them their opportunity, although not by design.
Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) seems to have drunk the Tea Party Kool-Aid, seemingly thinking and acting as if American Latino voters are not smart enough to understand his flip-flop on immigration.
The agencies responsible for wildlife control have tried non-lethal methods to chase away the egrets and owls, but the birds returned. Apparently out of non-cruel options, the government is mandating "the final solution."
New York City should be a leader in drawing a bright line between the criminal legal system and the civil immigration system.
Last week, as I stood only a few feet away from President Obama and watched him speak on the need for comprehensive immigration reform, I was reminded of the reasons that I'd filed my naturalization papers so that I could vote for him in the November 2008 election.
In celebration of #GivingTuesday, we've been sharing a look at just some of what the League has done to increase political participation and strengthen our democracy -- and our country -- in 2013.

This week I visited the National Mall and walked into a tent with a sign that said "Day 9 of Fasting." Inside sat a group of advocates who have been fasting to draw attention to the impact of our broken immigration system. Sometimes the quietest acts of protest can be the most powerful.
The largest minority group in the nation, Hispanics, could help rescue Barack Obama's floundering presidency. But for that to happen, the President needs to take significant action soon on immigration reform rather than wait for a "do nothing" Congress.
Why is it so hard to reach any reasonable compromise on the immigration issue? It is because faults of our immigration policy are about hundred years old and most of us are accustomed to accept them as unquestioned wisdom.
The House GOP leadership are quick to come up with lame excuses -- like the so-called Hastert Rule or a short legislative calendar -- but they are much slower to act on behalf of the country.
This lack of political will is pitiful. It would almost be comical if it were not so costly to the United States and so devastating to the Latino community -- and if a real solution were not possible.
