I just read this outstanding NYT article on 'sanctuary cities' - places in which public officials (rightly, IMHO) do not count it among their duties to sniff out and apprehend undocumented immigrants. Among the items it touches on are:
  • presidential politics (Mitt vs. Rudy)
  • male vs. female labor (undocumented immigrants mowing the lawn = ok; the same providing child care = not ok)
  • public health and safety
  • demographic shifts
  • sci-fi movies.
Plenty of other immigration news out there too...including a Catch-22 story from work. More later.
