Boa vinda a Framingham!

FRAMINGHAM

The Globe's editorial page takes a look at Framingham today and the debate there over immigration.

It talks to both sides, including anti-illegal immigration activist Jim Rizoli and Ilma Paixao, president of the Brazilian American Association.

"The federal government could pass long and desperately needed federal immigration reform. Any bill that makes it out of Congress will be an imperfect compromise. But any progress would be welcome if it helps untangle the decades-old, messy contradictions of damning illegal immigrants while enjoying the fruits of their labor," the editorial says.
