MIGRATION IS IN THE NEWS!
There is an excellent series on NPR this week called the "Migration Maze," I heard it Monday morning on The Takeaway - here is the link http://www.thetakeaway.org/story/obama-aims-stop-undocumented-immigration-source/ It is an excellent series that traces the people who are deported from the USA back to their countries of origin. Very worth listening to and thinking about!
Tom Jjelten, a NPR correspondent has a new book out about the new immigrants:
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/13/books/review/a-nation-of-nations-by-tom-gjelten.html. He was interviewed this weekend on NPR about the book with an interview excerpt with the first Asian-American elected to the Virginia legislature.
And finally, for those who like their news with a sense of humor, watch John Oliver on the Migration Crisis. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umqvYhb3wf4
Please send me your thoughts, ideas, interesting books, articles or action items on how to change our broken immigration system. I return to Tucson, Arizona in early November for another period of volunteer activities to work directly with newly arriving migrants.
