Something to think about

Now this is scary: fifteen of the 19 hijackers in the Sept. 11 attacks legally entered the U.S. on travel visas; three were admitted with business visas; the 19th entered on a student visa.

John Keeley of the Center for Immigration Studies said more expansive visa rules would lead to illegal immigration and other problems.

"The student (visa) category has to be examined closely because it has been savagely exploited by terrorists in the past," he said. "We have the best colleges and universities in the world, and they're here for American students primarily."
