Immigration Debate Goes Viral "Equipped with a small video camera, a laptop and a point of view, filmmakers Eric Byler and Annabel Park are trying to influence the heated immigration debate in a suburban Virginia county outside Washington." CNN. Without National Debate, Immigration Protests Seem Smaller Immigration reform has not been made a priority in presidential debates. "In many cities, including New York, Chicago, Houston and Los Angeles, crowds were a small fraction of those in previous years, with few people outside protest areas even aware that marches were under way." New York Times. Voting Rights Are Too Important to Leave to the States Adam Cohen writes in response to the recent Supreme Court decision, "If the courts won’t protect voters, Congress has to. The Constitution, in Article 1, Section 4, gives Congress broad authority to set the rules for federal elections. It should use this power to set minimum voting rights standards that would apply nationwide and ensure that all eligible Americans could vote." New York Times.
