The House of Representatives goes on recess this week, before taking up comprehensive immigration reform. In the absence of reform, California legislators are attempting to pass an amended version of the TRUST Act, a bill that would limit who state and local police can hold for deportation. This edition also takes a look at border security proposals in the immigration reform debate. Senate bill S. 744 allocates $46 billion to hiring more than 18,000 border patrol agents, building 700 miles of border fence and other measures that have raised concern among border communities. How does the House of Representatives’ approach compare?
