US gov't seeks supplies for immigration documents

WASHINGTON — The Homeland Security Department appears to be preparing for an increase in the number of immigrants living illegally in the country to apply for work permits after President Barack Obama announces his long-promised plans for executive actions on immigration reform later this year.

Buscan abogados para niños inmigrantes en EEUU

LOS ANGELES — La mayoría de los aproximadamente 60.000 niños centroamericanos que entraron por la frontera mexicana el año pasado todavía no tienen abogados que los representen ante los tribunales de inmigración, y sus partidarios se esfuerzan por entrenar a voluntarios que los ayuden con la enorme acumulación de casos.

Help wanted: Free lawyers for immigrant children

LOS ANGELES — Most of the nearly 60,000 Central American children who have arrived on the U.S.-Mexico border in the last year still don't have lawyers to represent them in immigration court, and advocates are scrambling to train volunteer attorneys to help cope with the massive caseload. With the number of unaccompanied immigrant children more than doubling this past fiscal year, the need for attorneys has surged, and it has been exacerbated by the immigration courts' decision to fast-track children's cases, holding initial hearings within a few weeks instead of months.

Obama e inmigración: esperanzas

WASHINGTON (AP) — Eran unos 30, todos ciudadanos mexicanos desesperados por evitar las deportaciones que les separarían de sus familias. Vivían en Illinois, y pidieron ayuda a su nuevo senador, Barack Obama. Les rechazó. Ésa fue una de las primeras ocasiones en las que Obama podría haber empleado el poder de su cargo para ayudar a evitar la salida forzosa de inmigrantes que estaban en Estados Unidos de forma ilegal. Ocho años más tarde, con su poder aumentado como presidente, vuelve a enfrentarse a esa decisión, en esta ocasión con el estatus de millones de inmigrantes en juego.

Obama and immigration: High hopes, a mixed record

WASHINGTON (AP) — There were about 30, all Mexican nationals desperate to avoid deportations that would separate them from their families. Living in Illinois, they appealed for help from their new U.S. senator, Barack Obama. He turned them down. It was one of the first times Obama could have used the power of his office to help defer the removal of immigrants who were in the United States illegally. Eight years later, with his powers magnified as president, such a decision is upon him again, this time with the status of millions of immigrants at stake.

Immigrant sanctuary gains popularity in Arizona

TUCSON, Ariz. — On her 27th day of living in a tiny room at a Tucson church known for pioneering the popular immigrant sanctuary movement in the 1980s, Rosa Robles Loreto swept a courtyard, prayed with a group of parishioners and greeted her uniformed son fresh off his baseball practice. Robles Loreto is a 41-year-old immigrant who lacks legal status and is facing deportation after getting pulled over for a traffic infraction four years ago. She has vowed to remain in Southside Presbyterian Church until federal immigration authorities grant her leniency.
