Immigration petitions for battered individuals

The unfortunate reality is that some individuals in the United States suffer from physical abuse and battery at the hands of family members.

It appeared that certain politicians in Congress were going to push forward with their agenda to make immigration rules stricter. However, last Thursday lawmakers left Washington to have a week-long recess and the push for immigration reform was put on a temporary hold.

Immigration does not hurt the American poor

There's a long-standing misconception that has existed for hundreds of years, and probably much longer. It's the idea that immigrants, when they enter the United States and other countries, hurt the poor in that country by driving down wages and making jobs more scarce. However, there is an enormous amount of evidence to prove the opposite is true. In fact, the presence of immigrants invariably boosts the economy and job creation.
