Buenos días. Here are some of the top immigration-related stories this morning, along with a couple of other good reads.
- The Associated Press reports that $600 million border security bill, which had been temporarily put on hold due to a procedural glitch, is now is on its way to President Obama's desk after the Senate convened a special session.
- In addition to spending on border security, the Obama administration also continues to deport record numbers of people, the Christian Science Monitor reports.
- The Washington Post has a piece on an undocumented Indian student being granted a rare eleventh-hour reprieve from deportation, allowing him to pursue his education.
- The Associated Press reports on the results of a poll showing that some English-speaking Latinos are turning to Spanish-language television and radio for "sports and entertainment, a cultural connection and a nagging feeling among some Latinos that English-language media portray them negatively."
- Lastly, a story that made me a little homesick for the border: The Los Angeles Times reports on Los Tucanes de Tijuana, a narcocorrido band that has been banned from performing in its hometown.
