"Federal officials on Tuesday launched a controversial program in the District that targets illegal immigration, but not without a fight from some city officials who argue the effort undermines trust between police and local immigrant communities," the Washington Post writes. "The D.C.

"The provocative topic of U.S. immigration policy is the focus of the second election year special hosted by CNN's and TIME's Fareed Zakaria for CNN/U.S. and CNN International.

Two American thought leaders on immigration politics and policy - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I-NY), and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R-KS) - discuss their proposals for America's immigration policy challenges," says CNN.

College Board Publishes Guide for Illegal Alien Students

"Bob Dane, a spokesman for Federation For American Immigration Reform, told the Herald that the guide ignores the fact that it is illegal for companies to hire undocumented workers, regardless of whether or not they hold a bachelor's degree. 'It's a tacit wink and a nod to game the system when and where you can,' Dane told the Herald."

SEC Interest in Immigration Enforcement Tied to Audit Program

"There is a long list of crimes the Securities and Exchange Commission usually investigates. Now lawyers who closely watch the commission say it is adding disclosure of undocumented immigrant violations to that list," says Businessweek. "The SEC, which declined to comment by e-mail, would investigate a company's disclosures about an ICE audit to make sure they were complete, timely, and accurate, says Jacob Frenkel, a former SEC enforcement lawyer who stresses the commission's independence in these matters."
