Week Ending July 26
This week in immigration reform: Latino leaders call for immigration reform as a political, moral, and economic necessity at NCLR’s 2013 Annual Conference in New Orleans; House committees hold hearings on DREAMers and on border security; and NCLR Affiliates continue contacting their members of Congress, urging members to step up and lead on comprehensive reform that includes a road to citizenship. NCLR staff kept the community informed in a slew of news pieces this week, with staff quoted in stories in The New York Times, CBS News, the Associated Press, Telemundo 51-Miami, VOXXI, El Diario, MSN Latino, the Bayou Buzz, Terra.com, Ahora Sí, The Huffington Post, and 1200 News Radio WOAI.
