The legislation/guest workers bill introduced into Congress by Rep. Kolbe, Rep. Flake, and Sen. McCain disqualifies any undocumented worker who has been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor committed in the US, "excluding crimes related to unlawful entry or presence in the US and crimes related to document fraud undertaken for the purpose of satisfying a requirement of this Act or obtaining a benefit under this Act". My understanding of the above is that the exclusion would comprise everyone who may have been convicted of a misdemeanor, say, in the use of a false social security card to obtain employment or a driver's license, convicted for driving without a valid driver's license, etc. Is my interpretation of this exclusion correct?
