- Religious leaders and community members are coming together to 
express concerns about detention conditions of immigrants at Monmouth 
County Correctional Institution and in New Jersey County Jails that 
hold immigrants.

- We will be calling for a "community accountability board" as a 
mechanism to provide meaningful oversight that is needed for safe and 
humane conditions in New Jersey immigration detention facilities.

2) The Politics of Immigration: website, blog, upcoming dialogue events

Hi everyone,

Our book, The Politics of Immigration: Questions & Answers, has been 
out for well over a month on Monthly Review Press. You can find it at 
most independent and chain bookstores around the country, as well as 
internet booksellers like Amazon and Powell's Books (for Powell's, if 
you enter the site through http://powellsunion.com 10% of your 
purchase goes directly to the workers).

Activists, organizers and grassroots educators who want to order the 
book in bulk can get it at a special discount; contact Monthly Review 
directly at bookorder @ monthlyreview.org or 212-691-2555 for details.

The official website for our book, The Politics of Immigration: 
Questions & Answers, is now up and running at 

The website includes a chronology of US immigration laws (which was 
left out of the printed book for lack of space), and updated resource 
lists with links, among other information. (And the acknowledgments, 
which were unfortunately left out of the book by mistake.)

We also have a blog at http://thepoliticsofimmigration.blogspot.com 
where we post information about upcoming book events, as well as 
articles and announcements we think you might want to know about. And 
if you're on myspace, please friend us at 

We'd love to hear your impressions and feedback on the book, the 
website and the blog. You can contact us directly
at thepoliticsofimmigration @ gmail.com. We also encourage you to 
post reader reviews of the book on Amazon and other bookseller websites.

We have several dialogue events coming up in the NYC area in 
September. Details are on our blog at 

We hope to soon post a description of the dialogue format on the 
website so people can get a better sense of what to expect. But the 
basic idea is a participatory format where we work together to 
address anti-immigrant arguments and concerns or questions about 
immigration, making use of the knowledge and experience of all the 
participants. (And yes, we'll have copies of the book available for 
those who want to buy it.)

We are eager to facilitate more dialogue events in the NYC area, 
south to DC and north to Boston, so please get in touch if you're 
interested. We're also planning some trips soon. Jane will be in the 
Midwest in early October: Chicago & its suburbs; possibly Madison 
and/or Milwaukee; Champaign-Urbana; St. Louis; Terre Haute & 
Bloomington (IN); and Indianapolis. If you have contacts in any of 
these places (or nearby) who might be interested in setting up 
community dialogue events, classroom visits or media interviews, 
please pass them along. We are hoping to partner with local 
grassroots activist groups, congregations, etc. in each place. David 
will be in northern California (Bay Area) in late October, so please 
pass along your contacts there. Jane will likely be in southern 
California in early November. If you'd like us to come somewhere 
else, let us know.
