Feliz Monday. Here are a few of the top immigration-related stories today and from over the weekend.
- Politico reported on the results of a poll that has "solid majorities of the public and overwhelming majorities of DC elites" favoring the passage of some kind of comprehensive immigration legislation.
- Immigration-related protests were in the news this weekend, including a large Tea Party rally on the border in Arizona, the New York Times and other outlets reported. CNN has video and a story on protesters running onto the field during the Washington Nationals-Arizona Diamondbacks game in D.C.
- The Washington Post reported that Utah lawmakers, until recently leaning toward proposed legislation similar to Arizona's stringent SB 1070, are changing course.
- The Los Angeles Times had a story on how about 50,000 Chinese youths will be traveling to the U.S. this year, most of them passing through Southern California, to experience a taste of American-style summer camp.
- Lastly, though tangential at best, the Los Angeles Times had a great story on how Mexican journalists, under constant threat of kidnapping or death, are kept silent by drug cartels.
