Mexico’s environment department has issued a death sentence on thousands of wild boars that have crossed the border from Texas in recent years. The animals are from a race of European boar, which is tough and destructive to the local fauna, said department spokesman Ignacio Legarreta. They could also carry hazardous diseases. <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatches/globalpost-blogs/que-pasa/mexico-fights-invasion-wild-boar-texas" target="_blank">read more</a></p> immigration Mexico texas. wild boars Mexico Que pasa Mon, 21 Nov 2011 16:17:00 +0000 Ioan Grillo 5681945 at http://www.globalpost.com American immigrants quickly learn how to gain weight http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/americas/united-states/111122/american-immigrants-weight-obesity <p>BOSTON &mdash; &ldquo;In a couple of years [refugees] go from such lack of nutrition to the other side of the spectrum, because suddenly they&rsquo;re in America, with an abundance of cheap, unhealthy food.&quot;</p> <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/americas/united-states/111122/american-immigrants-weight-obesity" target="_blank">read more</a></p> immigration Need to Know Thanksgiving Food & Drink Health United States Thu, 24 Nov 2011 12:34:00 +0000 Jordan Helton 5682260 at http://www.globalpost.com Mexicans cry foul over US immigration law http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/americas/mexico/111212/mexicans-cry-foul-over-us-immigration-law <p> MEXICO CITY &mdash; Migrants and advocacy groups on both sides of the border urged the US Supreme Court to strike down the controversial Arizona immigration law that has sparked outrage in Mexico.</p> <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/americas/mexico/111212/mexicans-cry-foul-over-us-immigration-law" target="_blank">read more</a></p> immigration Politics Mexico United States Tue, 13 Dec 2011 11:00:16 +0000 Ioan Grillo 5684075 at http://www.globalpost.com Mexico bats against Utah law http://www.globalpost.com/dispatches/globalpost-blogs/que-pasa/mexico-bats-against-utah-law The Mexican government again waded into the cauldron of U.S. immigration politics, this time over a law in Utah.

And a Muslim girl, beaten with a bat by three teenage boys, who told her to get out of their northern Russian city, Kondopog. But perhaps the most disturbing recent example of racial violence was the murder of Muslim activist Metin Mekhtiyev, who was knifed in the neck and face outside his building in central Moscow earlier this month. Xenophobia toward non-whites is rising in Russia, especially toward migrant workers from Central Asia and the restive North Caucasus region, where unemployment is rampant. <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/europe/russia/120427/russia-xenophobia-racism-putin-immigration-reform" target="_blank">read more</a></p> immigration Global Economy Political Risk Russia Sun, 29 Apr 2012 12:22:14 +0000 Khristina Narizhnaya 5702160 at http://www.globalpost.com Brazil ballot: Scores of foreigners run for office in local elections http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/americas/brazil/121027/brazil-municipal-elections-foreign-immigration <p><span style="font-size: 12.727272033691406px; line-height: 20px; ">SAO PAULO &mdash; In Brazil, it&rsquo;s not unusual to see &ldquo;Taliban&rdquo; run for election.

Muslims can buy freshly butchered halal chicken, while homesick Poles can buy distinctly non-halal pork kielbasa imported from Silesia. The store is typical for catering to the various nationalities that have recently flocked here. Unscientific as it is, the snapshot reflects a more detailed picture that emerged last month when the government published the results of its first census in a decad.</p> <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/europe/united-kingdom/130102/britain-immigration-census-austerity-Labour-policy" target="_blank">read more</a></p> immigration World Leaders Debt Crisis World Religion Global Economy United Kingdom Thu, 03 Jan 2013 11:14:00 +0000 Barry Neild 5730902 at http://www.globalpost.com Obama to push Congress for immigration overhaul, report says http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/americas/united-states/130113/obama-push-congress-immigration-overhaul The President is expected to announce his plan, perhaps at his State of the Union address next month.<p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/americas/united-states/130113/obama-push-congress-immigration-overhaul" target="_blank">read more</a></p> immigration United States Sun, 13 Jan 2013 20:54:52 +0000 Jennifer Mattson 5733920 at http://www.globalpost.com What America thinks about immigrants (two charts) http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/americas/united-states/130411/what-american-thinks-about-immigrant-two-charts <p>That was the question Pew Research asked pollsters regarding how to handle immigrants who are living in the United States illegally.
