Editor's Comments of the Day
According to the New York Times Linda Chavez has asked that her name be withdrawn from consideration for Secretary of Labor. Ms. Chavez's decision came after the revelation that she had housed and given money to a woman from Guatemala who entered the country illegally, and that the woman had done housework in Ms. Chavez's home. It remains open to interpretation whether Ms. Chavez was simply performing charitable acts or employing an illegal alien in contravention of the law. The similarities to the derailment of Clinton's first two nominees for Attorney General, Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood, are striking. The fact that the issue crosses party lines and has influenced appointments at the highest levels is evidence that illegal immigrants in the service sector of the US economy are a huge factor which the government has yet to address in a realistic way.
