California blazes trail for naturalization of 'illegals'

California has blazed the trail in a variety different sectors including immigration, naturalization and acquiring citizenship. Washington D.C.'s announcement not to pursue 'low priority' immigrants for deportation and instead focus on finding and expelling 'illegals' who have been convicted of crimes or pose a threat to national security, was greeted with joy by many illegal immigrants in California.

Govt introduces new deportation guidelines

Threats of deportation and removal proceedings just got a long-awaited breath of fresh air. The Department of Homeland Security has said it will change the way it handles immigration. Basically, the Department will classify immigrants, providing hope for some facing deportation and removal proceedings.

It appears California immigrants fitting within those guidelines will go to the back of the line, thus buying more time to fight for legal status..

Employment immigration: California farmers seek relief

Employment immigration is a topic of immense concern to California farmers, who believe the only way they can stay in business is to hire foreign guest workers to keep up with the demands of their work.

The bill would require use of E-Verify, a federal database designed to check on an employee's legal status. Some in Congress believe illegal aliens are taking jobs away from American citizens. Farmers disagree and are fighting for temporary work permits for foreign laborers.
