Article

Roving H-1B Employees: An Employer's Guide To Labor Condition Applications
D.Ray Mantle writes "For those employers lucky enough to win one or more of the coveted H-1B cap workers, or who have existing H-1B workers transfer into their workforce, helping the individual maintain their legal status can be just as tricky."

What About Immigration?
Julian L. Simon for the Foundation for Economic Education writes "Immigration is one of the most important topics of our times.

Immigration Book
Soul Twins: A Latino Journey From The Edge To Self-redemption. By Oscar Vega Romero. ISBN 978-0-915745-93-7. $22.95 162 pages. Author Vega Romero contends "I was only one of the many Mexicans willing to face the prospect of death and of leaving a mother bereft, by crossing the US border illegally, in the attempt to make their dreams reality. I left my country without knowledge of the many dangers involved, but with the help of God, I arrived in the US, without authorization of the US government. http://store.floricantopress.com/servlet/Detail?no=10.

Dear Editor:
I continue to find Immigration Daily comments as only Bush/Republican bashing, providing nothing to the solution. Compared to the Democrats who do absolutely nothing except leave the immigrants in holy hell while they play nothing except politics. I am amazed Immigration Daily did not equally write a blazing editorial about what the Dems (wits) did this week with the bill they put on the floor with the sole purpose of trying to embarrass McCain. Wake up and smell the roses, because what Immigration Daily has been smelling is the fertilizer.
