The RP’s Weekly Web Gems: The Politics of Immigration

The Politics of Immigration

This is an amazing story of courage and persistence in the face of adversity. Isabel Castillo, an undocumented immigrant who came to the United States with her family when she was six years old and has been a vocal and visible proponent of the DREAM Act, will be presented with an honorary doctorate from the University of San Francisco tomorrow, the 20th of May. There’s only one catch: this Magna Cum Laude graduate of Eastern Mennonite University without a Social Security card could be deported at any moment. [Catholic San Francisco]

The United States is not the only country that deports undocumented immigrants. Mexico commonly deports its fair share of people from Central and South America simply trying to get through the country safely and into the U.S. Yesterday, Mexico detained nearly 500 immigrants in two semi-trucks trying to reach the United States.
