  • Supreme Court Strikes Down Key Part of Voting Rights Act

    Dear APRI Leadership:

    The Supreme Court Tuesday struck down a
    key part of the Voting Rights Act, ruling unconstitutional a provision of the
    landmark civil rights legislation used to promote the political power of
    minority voters across large swaths of the southern United States for nearly
    four decades. In a 5-4 ruling that split the court along ideological
    lines, the court freed some or all of 15 states from the requirement that all
    changes to voting laws, procedures and even polling place locations get advance
    approval from the Justice Department or a panel of federal judges. The
    court's conservative majority said when Congress reauthorized the law in 2006 it
    did not have sufficient basis to re-adopt the formula set decades
    earlier.

    Please go to the link for the complete

  • Letter to the Editor: Making room at the banquet table

    The caption for a photo that appeared with the April 7 Metro article “ Activists
    riding a fresh wave of optimism ahead of immigration rally ” identified a
    worker cleaning “a statue at Union Station.” But what a statue!
    It’s of A. Philip Randolph , the organizer
    of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, prime mover behind the original
    March on Washington, longtime spokesman for the rights of African American
    workers and author of the famous line, “At the banquet table of nature, there
    are no reserved seats. You get what you can take, and you keep what you can
    hold. If you can’t take anything, you won’t get anything, and if you can’t hold
    anything, you won’t keep anything. And you can’t take anything without
    organization.”
    How gratified he would be by this movement and the mobilization of
    individuals intent on securing a path to U.S. citizenship.

    SOCIAL SECURITY, Medicare, and Medicaid are the foundations for the well-being
    of scores of millions of middle- and low-income Americans. Without Social
    Security, 14 million more low-income Americans would be living in poverty.
    Because of Medicare, 33 million older people live longer, have access to quality
    care, and are not driven into poverty by rapidly rising health-care costs.
    Medicaid is a health-care boon to Americans not yet eligible for Medicare, which
    covers some 60 million Americans. Because of historical and lingering
    discrimination, racial minorities in particular need these programs. Overall,
    they have less income and fewer assets than whites, so a higher percentage of
    their retirement income comes from Social Security benefits. Also, because they
    more often have physically demanding jobs, they rely more on Social Security
    disability and require more health care after retirement. If there were no such
    support, the

  • FCC Should Continue to Encourage Broadband Investment

    One of the most effective ways to create good jobs at good wages in the coming
    years will be encouraging adoption of high-speed broadband Internet in every
    American community. Broadband has become as necessary to economic growth in the
    21stcentury as electricity and telephone lines were in the 20th
    century. That’s why it is troubling that Julius Genachowski, chairman of
    the Federal Communications Commission, may be backing away from his support for
    so-called tiered pricing, a policy that encourages Internet Service Providers
    (ISPs) to invest the $350 billion in network upgrades the FCC itself says is
    needed to deliver high-quality broadband to all of America -- while keeping the
    cost of broadband low for working families. In 2010, the FCC said that
    ISPs could charge more to the heaviest users of their network, those in the
    upper tier of bandwidth usage. The idea was that those who used the most
    bandwidth should pay extra to maintain and upgrade the network – otherwise, the
    average
