UN rights experts urge US to end mandatory immigrant detention

While a chaotic presidential campaign roars along and dominates much of New York City's news coverage, important stories sometimes get overlooked. One such story unfolded over the past day or two as United Nations rights experts called on the U.S. government to end mandatory detention of migrants.

Changes in immigration demographics

Conventional wisdom tells us that Mexican migrants (who are most often male) are pouring into the United States. They come here for jobs, or so it has long been believed.But the demographics at the border are changing. The U.S. government is saying that those who are intercepted at the border are today overwhelmingly Central American families. Many of those coming here today are in search in asylum rather than jobs.

Legal system a challenge for immigrants

Readers of our Staten Island blog know that the U.S. immigration system is a complex one filled with challenges for people who want to receive employment-based visas, permanent resident status or citizenship. Those many challenges make it apparent why people seek assistance from experienced immigration attorneys familiar not only with the law, but with the paperwork and processes involved. The challenges also make it clear why unscrupulous fraudsters try to take advantage of immigrants in need of legal help. 

Americans' views on immigration, jobs continue evolution

In the rough and tumble world of politics, reality can be warped by candidates eager for votes. While the issue of immigration has repeatedly been raised in this year's presidential election, it is one oversimplified and distorted by politicians, according to results of a recent poll.Americans are not as worried about immigrants taking their jobs as some candidates pretend. Today, Americans are nearly evenly split on the question of whether immigrants hurt American workers. Forty-five percent say immigrants hurt American employees and 42 percent say no harm is done to workers by immigration.
