Yes, your ancestors probably did come here legally — because ‘illegal’ immigration is less than a century old - Latino Public Policy Foundation

Yes, your ancestors probably did come here legally — because ‘illegal’ immigration is less than a century old.

"When people say 'my ancestors came here legally, they’re probably right. For the first century of the country’s existence, anyone could land here and walk right off the boat with no papers of any kind."

by Kevin Jennings When Nathalie Gumpertz arrived in New York in 1858, she was 22, single and ready to build a life in her new country. Without thinking twice about her legal status, she got off the boat, made her way to the Lower East Side (then known as Klein Deutschland, or “Little Germany,” d...

A tale of two states: Contrasting economic policy in California and Texas - Latino Public Policy Foundation

- California’s state and local government revenues and spending are 60 percent higher than Texas on a per-resident basis.

On economic performance — both have much to celebrate. Population and employment surged in Texas while California’s per-capita income and GDP have soared in recent years.

But both have plenty of room to improve. California stands out for its high rate of homelessness and low air quality. Texas has a larger share of residents without health insurance than any other state.

Crime rates and renewable energy production are similar in the two states despite very different policies. And while K-12 spending per student is much higher in California, student outcomes are if anything better in Texas.

Republican victories in Virginia show how COVID-19 has fundamentally changed American politics.

Whether the Virginia results translate to other states will depend on how schools in those states reacted to the spread of COVID-19, and whether a major national issue can take the place of these local frustrations in voters’ minds.

"The House language, which was close to finalization Wednesday morning, would include an immigration parole provision that would offer work authorization and deportation protection to undocumented people in the country since Jan. 1, 2011, and give them standard access to social safety-net programs when they’re eligible."

House Democrats are proposing to restore some undocumented immigrants’ access to public benefits amid rapidly evolving negotiations on their sweeping social spending and tax bill, according to multiple people familiar with the discussions.
