This week in social media saw lots of legal and policy activity as Governor Brown of the nation’s largest state weighed in on several important immigration laws. He vetoed the TRUST Act we urged him to sign, but signed a bill authorizing Deferred-Action immigrant youth to apply for driver’s licenses.
And Mitt Romney signals a slight shift in immigration policy. His staff clarified that he wouldn’t revoke Deferred Action for those already granted provisions, and would make comprehensive immigration reform a priority for his administration.
On eve of 1st debate, Romney says he wouldn’t revoke #DeferredAction for DREAMers. We expect details at debate tonight http://lat.ms/Rzb03A
As the national September jobs report was released showing unemployment finally dropping below 8%, we released our own Monthly Latino Employment Report. We highlighted the good news (unemployment finally under 10%) and the bad: workplace fatalities are on the rise.
Nat’l rate down, but Latino #unemployment is higher. Hispanics workplace fatalities also on rise. Read our jobs report http://bit.ly/VqHtMF
A majority of Americans now favor a path to legalization for undocumented immigrants, and Hispanics are affecting national politics like never before. This is the last week to register to vote in most states!
