Here are some items we are paying attention to:
- Panel to Vote on Solis Nomination (Today!): I did like this article in the San Francisco Chronicle discussing how Solis’s support for the enforcement of workplace standards could lessen the likelihood of employers using undocumented workers. However, USA Today is reporting some old tax liens on her husband’s business. I think that she will be confirmed because these tax issues are relatively minor compared to those of Tom Daschle, and Ms. Solis is not a partner in her husband’s business.
- Think Latinos are ambivalent about immigration? A commentary refuting this piece from a few days earlier about where immigration reform ranks on the policy agenda for Latinos.
