Happiness is often perceived as an elusive feeling, a fleeting moment in a person’s life. National happiness might sound absurd, but a recent report by the United Nations reveals that happiness can actually be a public policy with highly successful results. The 2021 World Happiness Report shows that high levels of government spending on human infrastructure—the services and systems that improve people’s quality of life—are the key to happiness. #womensrights #genderequality #women

Navajo Nation Council Delegate Amber Kanazbah Crotty wore her grandmother’s delicately patterned yellow, blue and purple scarf as she spoke before members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Montezuma Creek on Wednesday. The scarf’s colors, she said, were chosen to honor the memory of Ashlynne Mike, an 11-year-old Diné girl who was sexually assaulted and murdered near Shiprock, New Mexico, in 2016, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/new-mexico/articles/2021-07-25/navajo-advocates-take-community-approach-to-sexual-violence #womensrights #indigenous #indigenousrights #navajo #utah #mmiw

Rural America has a growth problem. Business and industry desperately need workers, but the domestic labor pool is shallow, and the nation’s birthrate is slowing. There’s no better place to help expand our economy than in rural communities like ours. We need smart public policy for sustained growth — and immigration reform would be a big part of it. The Iowa Business Council, a group made up of representatives of the largest corporations in the state, has been asking for immigration reform for years to help solve our labor woes. Plenty of research shows that flexible visa programs run federally or by the states could address this problem quickly. #immigration #immigrantrights #immigrationreform #iowa

After years of failed bipartisan talks on immigration reform, Democrats in Congress are pushing to go it alone and legalize millions of undocumented immigrants. They’re hoping to provide a path to citizenship to several key groups: undocumented “DREAMers” who came to the US as children; people with Temporary Protected Status, a form of humanitarian protection typically conferred on citizens of countries suffering from natural disasters, armed conflict, or other extraordinary circumstances; farm workers; and other essential workers. #immigration #immigrantrights #citizenship #immigrationreform #dreamers

COVID-19 has no silver linings, but it has helped shine the spotlight on women who work in academic medicine—the space in which physicians and scientists work together to create medical breakthroughs. These doctors and scientists do their research behind the scenes, out of the limelight, but those breakthroughs matter—they helped make the speedy development of a COVID-19 vaccine possible, for example. A few women in science are well-known. For example, Dr. Jennifer Doudna and her collaborator, Dr. Emanuelle Charpentier, won the 2020 Nobel Prize for their development of the CRISPR tool to edit DNA. In contrast, other women are still almost invisible. Take Dr. Katalin Kariko, for instance. Her research on mRNA therapy was used to develop the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, which helped save untold numbers of lives. Yet for most of her career, no one in academic medicine took Kariko seriously as a scientist. She had almost no support from anyone in academia to help her work. The university didn’t give her a tenure-track job or startup funds for a lab of her own; nor was she able to get grants to fund her research—yet, against all odds, she persisted. #womensrights #genderequality #metoo

Joe Biden has said the US Department of Justice intends on appealing a new court decision that effectively halts an Obama-era program aimed at protecting young immigrants from deportation. Texas federal judge Andrew Hanen on Friday deemed illegal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca) program. This program prevents the deportation of immigrants who were brought to the US unlawfully as children, known as “Dreamers”. #immigration #immigrantrights #daca #dreamers #immigrationjustice #biden

In an attempt to sway public opinion regarding undocumented immigrants, some try to paint them as financial leaches, bleeding the American financial system dry. Nothing could be further from the truth. After paying more than $23 billion in taxes, undocumented immigrants will never receive Social Security benefits, Medicare, or Medicaid. And when the rest of the country received financial aid during the pandemic, undocumented immigrants and their children received nothing. Last week, as part of the COVID-19 relief plan introduced by President Joe Biden, the majority of American families began receiving monthly payments of up to $300 per child. Deemed the "largest anti-poverty program in decades," certain undocumented immigrants and their families will be included in this round of help. #immigration #immigrantrights #undocumented #covid #biden #familyrights

The United States should accommodate millions of refugees who will be forced to flee disasters and other effects of a changing climate, according to a task force report released Wednesday. The study, under the auspices of Refugees International, which advocates for displaced people around the word, argues that the United States, as the traditional biggest carbon emitter, “has a special responsibility to lead on issues of climate change, migration and displacement.” #immigration #climatechange #refugees #Biden

When federal Judge Andrew Hanen ruled Friday that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is unconstitutional, he threw into doubt the future of the Obama-era initiative that protects from deportation undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children. The future of DACA now rests with federal courts of appeals, and the legal landscape isn't promising for the program's survival -- unless Congress steps in to rescue it. #immigrantrights #immigration #daca #dreamers
