    I think the article is good but it also failed to considered the impact on hospitality Industry(huge). Meat packing plants use a lot of undocumented labor, Manufaturing companies what ever has not gone to China yet they have undocumented labor and Mining as we can see from the Utah accident 3 of the 6 miners were undocumented mexicans you can bet there are more working there and other mines. The effect of this will be felt in the economy, if we combine this with an already anounce possible ressesion is not a pretty picture. The Fed will not be able to cut rates if there are inflation worries and help the economy.

    Decemeber 2007/ Jan 2008 will tell us whether we are headed for a recession or not.

    Fed is going to cut interest rates. It has pumped money. It has played banker. Now the only thing left is fed reducing the interest rates. I feel that we have a problem of inflation inherently which is not being acknowledged openly by big names.
    It would be interesting to see how the Fed will strike a balance between the interest cuts and inflation issues. I do not personally see a safe landing for the credit issues market is having and the real estate either. There will be a cascading effect on job market as well.

    Some of the EB based immigrants who can potentially get laid off, will have to go back to the line and start their GC afresh if they have not completed 6 months by the time they are laid off.

    All over 5 visas. How petty are we becoming? Is this the kind of message we want to send to tomorrow's leaders? What a shame that we can't even find a solution for these young people!!!

    "They are highly motivated young people," said Mr. Renezeder, who said the interns serving in other countries were not encountering visa problems.

    Just the INS gives them a tough time. Disgusting!!

    Under no circumstance should any child born to an illegal immigrant within our borders be given legal status as a citizen of the United States of America.

    If the parents are here illegally then so are their children or any children born to them while here...this is a simple solution to the separation of family issues. Simply send them all home together or as a group family when they are discovered and deported.

    A comparison is that I break into your office and steal all your computers...you catch me with all the computers and arrest me and I still get to keep all computers that I stole. Even though I did a criminal act during the theft to get them... anything that I touched or produced illegally....I get to keep for myself.

    Change the laws now so they make sense...otherwise we will have illegal women getting pregnant on purpose and or arriving here illegally already pregnant ...what were the Morons writing these laws ......thinking?

    Lew,

    It's part of the constitution that children born on American soil are automatically granted citizenship.

    Lew - That sounds great... until you actually see how a policy like this works in other countries. One of the early cases I had as an immigration lawyer was during the first Gulf War in 1991. The client was a young man who was a graduate student in Tennessee. He was born in Kuwait. His father was born in Kuwait. His grandfather was a Palestinian who fled Palestine in 1948 and found refuge in Kuwait. But that country had a policy barring these "illegal immigrants" from acquiring any sort of permanent status. And they treated any children born to them the same way. They were tolerated because their labor was needed but they were never invited to become Kuwaitis.

    In 1991, when Yassir Arafat sided with Saddam, the Kuwaitis took out their revenge on the Palestinian community in many ways. One was to prevent any Palestinians outside the country from being able to re-enter. My client, who had never known any country but Kuwait and who had all of his relatives in Kuwait, was to be permanently exiled from his country. He suffered a severe mental breakdown and was institutionalized.

    If we adopt such a policy in this country, one day we too will have third and fourth generation children who are unlawfully present. I don't want to think about an America that is like that.

    India changed its citizenship rules in 2004 to stop granting birthright citizenship if one of the parents is an illegal immigrant.

    So, India adopted a bad law - does that mean the US should, too? It's like justifying beating up your wife by your neighbor beating up his. If someone else has done it, it does not mean it's a good policy.

    Lew,

    How can you compare humans to computers -being things that humans use-?

    If you send the children to their parents birth land, children will be in the same position that their parents are here and some times even worse.And belive it or not, no women would like to get pregnant for the sole purpose that after 21years their childen will sponsor them to start the legalization application.

    "So, India adopted a bad law - does that mean the US should, too? "

    The law is only one side of the story - it signals intent and sends a message. That law is backed up by action on the ground in the form of a fence running the length of the border. If something like this is what is necessary to curb people's insecurities and break the logjam, so be it.

    So, if it takes shooting yourself in the foot to realize your are dumb, so be it, right?

    Those children of illegal immigrants will be paying 15% of your SS paycheck. You just want cut your check by 15% and sent it to Mexico. Nice job shooting yourself in the foot!
