Solution still needed

The Senate's second attempt at comprehensive immigration reform died a particularly devastating death Thursday as Senators, seeing that the measure wouldn't reach the 60-vote threshold, abandoned the ship like illegal aliens running out of a Swift meat-packing plant. Something needs to be done about the millions of illegal immigrants in the United States -- but […]

Will Republicans with a backbone please stand up

Republican Sen. Trent Lott went on a whine today over the immigration bill being debated in the Senate. Lott apparently was exasperated by the fact that his GOP colleagues wouldn't go along to get along so John McCain could have a legislative victory to tout as he campaigned across the country -- not realizing that […]

I think I'd like to be an illegal alien

The Boston Globe is reporting that the Bush administration asked for the requirement that illegal aliens pay back taxes for three of the past five years be removed from the latest immigration plan.

About that immigration bill

Here's hoping it dies. Bush has made a couple of egregious mistakes when it comes to domestic legislation during his two terms. The prescription drug benefit was one. McCain-Feingold was another.

Jobs Americans won't do

I'm sure you're familiar with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement sweep last week that netted more than 1,000 illegal immigrants working at Swift & Co. meat-processing plants last week. Well, apparently those jobs weren't among the ones Americans won't do -- people (most of them apparently legal residents) were lined up out the door to […]

This is classic

Uniform manufacturer Cintas has started checking its workers' Social Security numbers against the federal government's database and is now laying off workers whose numbers are coming up invalid -- an indicator that they're not allowed to work in the United States. One of the workers complained about the move to the press. Cintas has notified […]

Castro's a great guy

Immigration and protests

To say I've been disturbed by the recent protests against congressional efforts to tighten security on our southern border and make illegal immigration a felony instead of a misdemeanor would be an understatement. I've seen a plethora of photos from these protests and I'm shocked by the display of "patriotism." I use the scare quotes […]

For all of you Bush-haters

For those suffering extreme cases of Post-Election Selection Trauma, a word of advice on getting through Canadian immigration: Pizza. Canada's immigration minister Judy Sgro has resigned over allegations that she agreed to help a pizza shop owner avoid deportation in return for free food. Harjit Singh says he delivered free pizza and garlic bread to […]
