How Local Governments Are Hacking Immigration Reform

Spencer Amdur has an article entitled "How Local Governments Are Hacking Immigration Reform" in The Atlantic magazine that is well worth reading.  In the article, he describes how state and local governments are increasingly refusing to take part in federal deportation policy based on a number of civil rights and public safety concerns. This new local resistance is reducing deportations and forcing federal authorities to reconsider their enforcement priorities.
