Help me find illuminating, educating, eye-opening articles on immigration for a class I'm teaching at the Kennedy School of Government.

I'm teaching a workshop next week for policy students who are writing about immigration. I'd like to find a small collection of truly superlative articles on immigration--immigration *anywhere*--from popular press sources: anything from Slate to Time to The Economist to the NYT, the New Yorker, the Atlantic, and so on.
My students study immigration of all kinds and all the issues associated with it: refugees, brain drain, unskilled workers, highly skilled workers, remittances, immigration and culture, immigration and language, immigration and children.... I'd like to put together a wide range of great articles on everything from the technocratic problems of managing immigration to the experience of being an immigrant.
What have you read that's really opened your eyes, amazed you, or educated you about immigration?
