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.

Alan, when illegal aliens are not allowed to send their kids to school receive medical care, and their offspring are not entitled to citizen ship and therefore all these benefits are more, and when they pay full restitution for any crimes they commit we can talk.

Until that time we need to control our borders. Even Ron Paul agrees with that.
