The French National Assembly passed a bill over the weekend that shortens application deadlines for asylum-seekers and doubles the current detention timeline for failed asylum-seekers awaiting deportation. Pres. Emmanuel Macron's centrist party says the law will speed up the asylum claims process.
Last week, House Speaker Paul Ryan launched the GOP’s plan to fight poverty and enable the upward mobility of Americans.

The New York Times concluded its "The Great Divide" series on inequality last Friday with a column by Joseph E. Stiglitz, who moderated the series. In "Inequality is Not Inevitable," Stiglitz pointed to countries like Sweden, Finland, and Norway to suggest that "our policies and our politics" -- not "the inexorable laws of economics" -- are responsible for economic inequality in the United States. Of the more than 600 comments to the article, some readers zeroed in on immigration policy.

Earth Day study finds open land losses continue
By Jan Shepel -- Wisconsin State Farmer
The report, which is done once every decade by the Numbers USA Education and Research Foundation, concluded that the nation is not doing very well on conservation of our land resources.
A new study shows Utah is second only to Nevada in its rate of urban sprawl over a 10-year period and is No. 7 in the country over the past 28 years for undeveloped land giving way to development.
Overall, undeveloped acreage equal to the size of Florida has been paved over in the United States from 1982 to 2010, with 11 million acres of cropland gone and 12 million acres of pasture and rangeland lost to buildings and highways, according to the study.
Do you think your Senators realize that, in the hundred years between our country's first Census in 1790 and 1890, the numerical level of that incredible flow of immigration from Europe that filled the Eastern Seaboard and spread out across the continent was - - - - - nearly 2 million immigrants per decade. The world had never quite seen a movement like that of masses of people fleeing a crowded continent and completely taking over another.
MSNBC today is suggesting that NumbersUSA's grassroots citizen army very well may stand in the way of the mass media's rush to proclaim "comprehensive immigration reform" (mass amnesty) a done deal in the next Congress. Thanks for the respect.
One of the largest polls on immigration ever conducted has proven what we suspected all along: National religious leaders who are lobbying Congress for ever-more immigration simply don't represent much of anybody. A good way for a Member of Congress to lose considerable votes back home would be to do on immigration what they are asked by the leaders of most national religious agencies. Most Christians and Jews want LESS immigration, not more, Zogby found.
All of us at NumbersUSA can easily become focused on what's wrong with America. We believe immigration numbers are way too high and that illegal immigration is ruinous to the country.
America's economic downturn and increased immigration enforcement has caused the number of immigrants entering the United States to drop significantly. According to new Census Bureau estimates, only 500,000 immigrants came to the United States in 2007 -- a marked decrease over 2006's total of 1.8 million.
On September 10, 2008, NumbersUSA launched Talk About Numbers, Talk About Immigration.
