News Round Up In-Brief

AccessDenied has added this feature in order to keep our readers informed of news items and reports from around the web on unauthorized im/migration and health. If you have items you would like us to include, please email: contactaccessdenied@gmail.com.

International updates:

  • Asylum and immigration issues were focal points in Australia’s recent election campaign. The government has now unveiled plans for more detention centers to accommodate an increasing number of asylum seekers, as well moving children and family groups from detention into community-based accommodations as part of a more “humane” approach.

Updates from the US:

  • Nearly one in five Americans are either immigrants or were born in the United States to at least one parent from abroad, the Census Bureau reported Tuesday.
  • …and the circus continues in the run-up to the Nov. 2 midterm elections, as candidates across the political spectrum have found one common enemy: foreigners. In political commercials around the country, candidates are sounding a nativist tone and castigating their opponents as supporters illegal immigrants.
