DREAM Act
Book Review: Dream Chasers: Immigration and the American Backlash, by John Tirman

Today, I'm upset because there are many DREAMers who have the grades and the potential to go to the college of their dreams, but who just can’t go because they can’t afford it.

Virginia Attorney General Mark R. Herring announced on Tuesday that undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children and are granted legal presence through the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program would qualify for in-state tuition at the state’s public colleges and universities.

Today is the first day that as many as 1.7 million young undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children can file applications for deferred action, under a new policy announced by President Obama in June.

Top stories this week are likely to include: G-20 economic summit in Los Cabos; Rio+20 conference on sustainable development in Rio de Janeiro; the hemisphere reacts to Obama’s immigration policy shift; South Korea’s president and China’s premier embark on separate Latin America tours; and Humala’s approval hits a new low.

Children are the unwitting victims of exclusionary policies toward immigrants. (video interview available)
NYU Professor of Globalization and Education Marcelo Suárez-Orozco speaks with Americas Quarterly about his AQ article on mixed-status immigrant families in the United States.
