Review of deportation cases garnering mixed reactions

Review of deportation cases garnering mixed reactions

Support for the review of deportation cases announced last week by the Department of Homeland Security has earned the support of progressive organizations, and even some conservatives. # Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, a Republican, said in a conference call hosted by the National Immigration Forum today that he applauds Homeland Security’s decision to use prosecutorial discretion in immigration deportation to focus resources on “people who are here to violate our laws in felonious ways.” # Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, said during the conference that he applauds the measures, calling the decision to review cases “a Christian decision to protect the innocent.” # “The cook at Arby’s with three children was deported with the drug dealer, that was wrong,” Rodriguez said.

Detroit faith leaders to protest Lowe’s for pulling ad from ‘All-American Muslim’

Detroit faith leaders to protest Lowe’s for pulling ad from ‘All-American Muslim’

The Lowe’s logo (Pic via melissabargains.com ) In response to the company’s recent decision to pull ads from the TLC reality series All-American Muslim , Detroit-area faith leaders will hold a demonstration outside a Michigan branch of home improvement chain Lowe’s on Saturday. Lowe’s pulled its advertising from the show after the Florida Family Association complained that it depicted American Muslims “as ordinary folks just like you and me.” The group said the show is nothing more than “propaganda clearly designed to counter legitimate and present-day concerns about many Muslims who are advancing Islamic fundamentalism and Sharia law.” At least 60 companies have acceded to the group’s demands, but Lowe’s has born the brunt of most of the scrutiny — likely because of a public comment issued shortly after the ad pulls were announced.
