Editor's Comments of the Day

Rep. Smith has been successful in getting H. R. 4227, his version of a solution to the H-1B problem, past the House Committee on the Judiciary. The Dreier-Lofgren bill, H.R. 3983, enjoys broader support among those in the information technology field. For one person's opinion on how our legislative system works see Andres Benach's article "Democracy, The Congress, and Immigration Law." Now is the time to contact your Representative in Congress and make your views known. Those whose lives are most directly effected by these bills, the hundreds of thousands of people working in the United States with H-1B visas and those who aspire to work here, probably have the least influence. Do not let this stop you from voicing your opinion, but also urge your employers, whose votes and campaign contributions make them more likely to be listened to, to get involved.
