How immigrants are redefining 'American' in Southern California

In the news this morning

A few of today's top immigration-related stories: a border security bill, uncertainty about further immigration reforms, and more.

  • President Obama has signed a new border security bill, keeping mum about the prospects of further immigration legislation down the line, USA Today reports.

  • But does an enforcement-based measure like the new border bill do anything to quell the immigration debate? Nope. NPR and ABC News have stories that explore this angle.

  • The latest two cents on the 14th Amendment debate, from Politico: California Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman and U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina say they don't endorse doing away with birthright citizenship, an idea being floated by some GOP leaders.

  • Lastly, from the Sunshine State: Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill McCollum is feeling some backlash from my Miami relatives - oops, I meant Florida Latinos - after pushing for an Arizona-style anti-illegal immigration law in that state.

This will be my only post this morning on Multi-American, as I'm about to embark on a little project that will take up a few hours. More later. Hasta pronto.
