Noriko Calderon Makes CNN

The Noriko Calderon case, a Japanese girl born to parents who illegally immigrated to Japan, is headlining CNN’s website. Sadly, I believe it’s being sold off as more of a human interest story rather than an in-depth analysis of the immigration and naturalization policies of Japan.

Do you think this will help cast an international spotlight on some of the difficulties foreigners have with residency and immigration?
