Romney Planning New Hispanic Outreach

"[Mitt] Romney is preparing a speech on June 21 before a group of Latino officials in Orlando, an address that some of his Hispanic advisers are pointing to as a potential major turning point. Romney will address that group, the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, one day before President Obama does, so it will provide a stark contrast between the two candidates on dealing with the nation's persistent immigration problems," the Boston Globe writes. "It is still unclear how detailed a policy Romney will outline in that address, with one potential variable being a bill that is being drafted by Senator Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican and top Hispanic leader. Romney has said only that he is examining Rubio's plan, which would grant non-immigrant visas to young people here illegally if they go to college or serve in the military."

Bush Official Aguilar Says Obama is Deporting Too Many People

"[W]hat makes Obama the most anti-immigrant president in recent history is his policy of massive, systematic deportations. He has now deported more than 1.2 million people, breaking up hundreds of thousands of families," says Alfonso Aguilar, who headed Citizenship and Immigration Services under President Bush. "Obama had a Democratic majority in both houses of Congress during his first two years. He could have gotten something done. Yet he chose to completely ignore the [immigration] issue."

California, Florida Consider Admitting Illegal Aliens to Practice Law

"If you're not in the U.S. legally, can you practice law here? The highest state courts in California and Florida are considering the question in the cases of two law school graduates who were brought to the U.S. as children," says the Wall Street Journal blog.

"Legal experts say the odds are long that the courts will rule in favor of Messrs Godinez-Samperio and Garcia. Federal law prohibits employers from knowingly hiring illegal workers, and people in the U.S. illegally are generally barred from receiving federal grants, loans and professional licenses, unless the benefits are approved by individual states."

Daily Reporter Wins Award for Investigation of Citizenship Processing

"Sarah Ryley, a writer at The Daily, is the recipient of the 2012 Eugene Katz Award for Excellence in the Coverage of Immigration. The award, presented annually by the Center for Immigration Studies, is intended to highlight good reporting in a field where so much of the coverage is formulaic and mawkish," says a release by CIS.

"Ryley wrote on a part of the Obama administration's weakening of immigration law enforcement that has not been widely covered, namely, increased pressure on rank-and-file immigration officers to rubber-stamp visa applications."

Odds Favor Arizona at Supreme Court, Says Attorney

"The Obama administration faces difficult odds convincing the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn an Arizona law cracking down on illegal immigration, an Atlanta immigration lawyer said Monday. Charles Kuck, managing partner of Kuck Immigration Lawyers LLC, cited a 5-3 ruling last year upholding Arizona's right to require employers to use the E-Verify system to check the legal status of workers as evidence the court is leaning toward letting states adopt laws targeting illegal immigration," the Atlanta Business Chronicle reports.
