This week's immigration blog roundup covers some new studies on migration and more.
Several new studies have found that immigrants are choosing to remain in their adopted countries rather than return to their countries of birth. Despite the economic downturn, immigrants still see the United States as a land of opportunity and are content with their decision to move here.
President Obama is expected to address the Congressional Hispanic Caucus next week on immigration reform. Representative Gutierrez and Senator Menendez are also expected to address the Caucus.
Last Saturday in Sacramento, hundreds marched to urge President Obama to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
Outgoing Senator Mel Martinez of Florida ended his tenure by stressing the need for immigration reform. During his time as Senator, he worked with Senators McCain and Kennedy on immigration reform.
On December 6-8, the National Immigration Law Center will be holding its 7th National Low-Income Immigrant Rights Conference in Arlington, Virginia. Attendees will share information and experiences and develop strategies around some of the core issues affecting low-income immigrants.
Lastly, ImmigrationProf Blog has a list of web resources for labor and immigration law for anyone considering hiring non-U.S. citizens.
