A bill designed to keep undocumented immigrants from getting married in Louisiana earned final approval from lawmakers on Wednesday. The state House and Senate both approved the bill that has been sent to Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal for consideration.

As immigration emerges as a major issue ahead of the 2016 presidential race, a new poll found broad public support for legalizing people who are in the U.S. unlawfully. But other attitudes about immigration are mixed, according to the survey by the independent Pew Research Center.

More than seven out of 10, or 72%, of those polled believe illegal immigrants in the U.S. should be allowed to remain here, if they meet certain conditions. That result is consistent with Pew polls in the past two years that also found strong support for legalization across political party lines.

Police in the UK would be able to seize the wages of illegal migrants as proceeds of crime, under new proposals to be announced by David Cameron Thursday.

The measures will form part of what Cameron will say is a "tougher but fairer" approach to immigration from the Conservative government, the BBC reports, and will be included in the Queen's speech.

The news comes as new figures reveal that net migration in the UK rose to 318,000 last year, a rise of more than 109,000 compared to the previous year.

America has long been scrutinized for its policies and legislation surrounding immigration, and it seems like African immigrants from sub-Saharan countries are carrying some of the heaviest burdens.

When making the journey across the Atlantic, many African immigrants have no idea that they are leaving behind more than just a familiar land.

Back when the Affordable Care Act was still a new concept—that is, before we found out that it has exceeded even our most optimistic expectations—more than a few prominent Americans were threatening to expatriate from the US if Obamacare was successfully signed into law.

Hillary Clinton is inviting -- and practically baiting -- Republican presidential contenders into a battle over immigration.

In her first Nevada campaign event on Tuesday afternoon, the Democratic front-runner accused the entire GOP field of seeking to relegate immigrants to "second-class status."
