Denver: immigrant teachers threatened with deportation if they join strikes

Thursday 08:59 GMT

Immigrant educators are being threatened with deportation if they attempt to join the wave of teachers’ strikes hitting the US.

In an attempt to dissuade its recent strike, the Denver public school system sent letters to teachers in January warning immigrant teachers that if they went on strike, their visas could be jeopardized. Since many types of visas require that workers be employed in order to stay in the country, the district warned that participating in the strike could jeopardize how the federal government views their work status.

Beto O'Rourke releases plan calling for giving millions of undocumented immigrants path to legal status

Wednesday 21:51 GMT

Days after saying he’d support eliminating U.S.-Mexico border barriers, former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke has released a 10-point plan that argues that strict border enforcement encourages illegal immigration and that calls for giving millions of undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship.

O’Rourke wants to give a path to legal status to undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. when they were minors, and to their parents.
