The Progressive Case Against Birthright Citizenship

BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP.

Many progressives celebrated President Obama’s recent executive action that will halt the deportation of millions living in this country illegally, but the celebration may prove short-lived. Though polls show that Americans of color are elated by the move, with 64 percent

Racial Divide.

Of all the issues raised by the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, perhaps the most intractable is the challenge of restoring opportunity to the high-poverty, high-crime, racially segregated neighborhoods where police and minority communities often collide most sharp

Here’s how our immigration laws actually encourage illegal immigration

Illegal Immigration.

The debate over President Obama’s executive action on immigration once again reveals a deep disconnect in the understanding of how legal and illegal immigration are linked. “Just enforce the law,” demand frustrated critics. To a great extent, we have. But the law is part o

Jeb Bush.

Jeb Bush is finally sounding like a man who really might run for the White House in 2016.

And one of his selling points is that he could do well among Latino voters -- possibly matching how well his brother, George W, did in 2004. After all, Jeb speaks Spanish and has a M

The Progressive Case Against Birthright Citizenship

Many progressives celebrated President Obama’s recent executive action that will halt the deportation of millions living in this country illegally, but the celebration may prove short-lived. Though polls show that Americans of color are elated by the move, with 64 percent of Hispanics surveyed supporting it, the same cannot be said for white Americans. According to Gallup, 62 percent of them disapprove, along with a slim majority of all Americans (51 percent to be exact.)...

The Battle to Boost Opportunity

The Battle to Boost Opportunity

Of all the issues raised by the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, perhaps the most intractable is the challenge of restoring opportunity to the high-poverty, high-crime, racially segregated neighborhoods where police and minority communities often collide most sharply. Whatever else is done to rebuild trust or rethink policing practices, America will continue to face too many wrenching cases like these unless it can first temper crime in such places by providing more of the...

Here’s how our immigration laws actually encourage illegal immigration

The debate over President Obama’s executive action on immigration once again reveals a deep disconnect in the understanding of how legal and illegal immigration are linked. “Just enforce the law,” demand frustrated critics. To a great extent, we have. But the law is part of the problem. Tens of thousands of regulations sit atop a creaky, aged legal architecture that has failed to keep pace with the economic needs of the country and betrayed the...

Key Witness In Michael Brown Case May Not Have Actually Seen Him Die, Report Says

Sandra McElroy     A new report from The Smoking Gun calls into question the testimony and character of a grand jury witness who corroborated police officer Darren Wilson's account of shooting Michael Brown.

Jeb Bush did really well with Latinos in Florida. It probably doesn’t mean much for 2016.

Jeb Bush is finally sounding like a man who really might run for the White House in 2016. And one of his selling points is that he could do well among Latino voters -- possibly matching how well his brother, George W, did in 2004. After all, Jeb speaks Spanish and has a Mexican-born wife. George W. is the high water mark for Republicans with Latinos these days; exit polls show he got 44 percent of their votes...

California braces for driver's license applications from undocumented immigrants

California is boosting its Department of Motor Vehicles operations to meet the huge demand for driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants it will begin issuing in January.

California health insurance exchange aims to increase Latino enrollment

Twice a day, San Jose insurance agent Ruben Villanueva offers KZSF-AM La Kaliente's Latino listeners tips about consumer finance and all kinds of insurance. This month, he's been reminding his Bay Area-wide audience that Californians need to sign up for health coverage by midnight Monday if they want to be insured on Jan. 1. It's a tough sell. "It's not that easy to get them interested and excited and motivated about something like this," Villanueva said. Many low-income Latinos...

Jeb Bush hinting presidential run? Will release 250K emails to 'let people make up their mind'

Jeb Bush's big donors and allies are tantalized by his promise to decide "in short order" whether to run for president. But supporters are struggling to understand what his actions mean and whether they can predict his political intentions. Bush is scheduled to give the commencement address Monday at the University of South Carolina during his second visit in recent months to the state that's set to host the South's first presidential primary. On the eve of the...
