Speaking in the Senate, Sen. Lieberman (D-CT) said that the new Homeland Security Bill (aka the bill to abolish the INS) seeks "to ensure that dangerous people and goods and containers are kept out of our country without restricting the flow of legal immigration and commerce that nourishes the Nation." In comments to the Press today, White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer said that "the President would still like to find ways to welcome workers into America," but "it's been immensely complicated as a result of the war on terror." In today's Featured Article, AILF points out that "the portion of Mexican workers in the U.S. workforce has doubled during the past decade," and that "nearly 43 percent of all job openings by 2010 will require only a minimal education, at a time when native-born Americans are obtaining college degrees in record numbers and are unlikely to accept positions requiring minimal education." AILF concludes that "America's current immigration policies are antiquated and fail to recognize the importance of Mexican workers to the national economy."
Clearly, America has a delicate balancing act ahead of her as our country seeks to simultaneously welcome immigration while protecting us against the tiny number of fanatics who would do us harm. As it unfolds, this balancing act will not be without its mis-steps, which we will hopefully keep correcting as we move forward. The end result, years hence, however, will likely be more immigration and more regulation. This is a prospect which bodes well for the immigration attorney community in the years to come.
