Bush immigration crackdown a lousy idea
Here's a link to the Register's Labor Day editorial, which unusually deals with current events rather than history and aspirations. It criticizes the Bush administration plan to do a major crackdown on employers suspected of having illegal immigrants on the payroll through matching Social Security numbers -- right when the harvest in several states is due. Interesting, the Chamber of Commerc and the AFL-CIO, which hardly ever agree on anything, are both opposed to this scheme.
