Not the Answer

A recent letter to the editor by Omar Duque, vice president for communications at the Illinois Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, says that the new H.R. 4437 (the Border Protection, Anti-Terrorism and Illegal Immigration Control Act) in the U.S. House "is a step in the wrong direction."

I agree that the "H.R. 4437 focuses solely on the enforcement side of immigration and calls for a mandatory program for all businesses to verify the legal status of their employees."

So what happened to the guest worker program? This bill isn't the immigration answer we were looking for. I think it's time to go back to the drawing board!
