Cesar Chavez's complicated relationship with immigration law

Today, many groups across the United States will take part in May Day celebrations. While they tend to center on human rights, many will focus on rights for illegal immgrants (and immigration reform). With these being very tough issues even as Congress embarks on a reform bill, it is interesting to revisit Cesar Chavez's past views on the topic.

Rallies held across the US for immigration reform bill

As the "Gang of Eight" senators are set to formally introduce their version of the immigration reform bill, demonstrations urging legislators to approve the bill were seen around the country on Tuesday. In front of Capitol Hill in Washington, DC thousands gathered and chanted "Si, se puede!" which means "Yes, we can!" in Spanish.

While lawmakers debate provisions for their respective versions of immigration reform bills, support for changes are being made by university and college presidents.

Immigration reform bill has competing interests

Amidst the news of a leaked version of the White House's version of a proposed immigration reform bill, many people have not considered the implications that an overhaul would have on families.

This would be especially important for young children of undocumented immigrants, who reportedly have to sacrifice relationships with their parents as they leave the country in order to properly obtain visas.

Immigration reform and the State of the Union

In prior posts we reported on how Senate leaders announced a bipartisan plan to create a comprehensive immigration reform plan, and how President Obama hoped that lawmakers could reach an accord quickly. In this week's State of the Union address, the President formalized his ideals for what such a plan would include.

Obama lends support for immigration reform

After a bi-partisan group of senators announced their plan for immigration reform, President Obama endorsed the idea and introduced his own thoughts on the proposal.
