Last week, we heard a lot about republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s Hispanic outreach, and now El Diario/La Prensa is focusing on how President Barack Obama is trying to get the support of Latinos. He’s going to need their votes to win the election, according to an article in the New York Times this weekend.
The New York Post and the Bensonhurst Bean both report on a new bill that would allow conditional visas for immigrants working in the tech, science, engineering, and math fields. CNN has a report on an online video program dedicated to empowering undocumented immigrants. Two major Texas papers report on the Texas Republican Party’s gentler approach to the controversial issue of illegal immigration.
But it’s not all good news—a paper in Prescott, Arizona reports further on immigrants in New Mexico allegedly receiving phony driver’s licenses, and a new report on the food service industry has bad news for immigrants everywhere.
