ImmigrationProf Blog will now include a "Photo of the Day" to highlight pictures that relate to immigration law. We therefore encourage you to send us photos that, in your view, tells a story about immigration and citizenship issues. When you send it to us, please tell us where the picture was taken and provide one or two brief sentences explaining how the picture relates to to immigration law. Or, take a picture and use the hashtag #immigrationprof when you post it to Instagram, Facebook or Tumblr.
Here's the inaugural ImmigrationProf Photo of the Day:
This picture was taken in front of College Avenue Presbyterian Church in Rockridge, a neighborhood in Oakland, CA. It is a reminder of the ways in which religious groups have been engaging in immigration issues of our time. Indeed, as reported in the NY Times in this article a week ago, several religious leaders have been encouraging a more compassionate approach to the recent migration of thousands of children from Central America and Mexico.
