New England Snapshot: Immigration
We're kicking off a new feature on All Things Considered called New England Snapshot, where we look at issues around the region.
One issue playing out in a number of states is immigration. Here in New Hampshire, House lawmakers have approved a measure that would allow undocumented students to pay in-state tuition rates at University System of New Hampshire schools.
In neighboring Vermont, lawmakers approved a bill last year giving undocumented immigrants the chance to obtain drivers licenses. Taylor Dobbs reported on the issue for Vermont Public Radio.
A former church in downtown Portland is offering new hope to a group of Maine immigrants perhaps facing the toughest challenge - asylum seekers. But as Tom Porter reports for Maine Public Broadcasting, project organizers say their work is far from complete.
