Baby Boomers Need Immigration

Dowell Myers, a professor of urban planning and demography at USC and the author of a forthcoming book on "Immigrants and Boomers," argues that the future of the baby boomers is tied to the economic success of the younger immigrant population.

"Why should baby boomers care about the state's immigrant population? It will become totally obvious within 20 years that the baby boomers need the immigrant youth. Not only will California have a shortage of workers, but the whole country will. We also know there is a skyrocketing tax burden being imposed by the elderly. We need to have more middle-class taxpayers to shoulder the burden. The trouble is you can't grow a worker overnight. You can't produce a middle-class taxpayer overnight, and you can't produce a home buyer overnight. You have to plan ahead."

H-1C Visas for Registered Nurses
Gregory Siskind, Esq writes "One of the few immigration measures passed in the last Congress was the extension of a little known nurse visa category called the H-1C. In November 2006, Congress approved legislation to extend the H-1C program for three more years. The program remains unchanged in substance."

Dear Weekly Editor:
I think it's about time to give up a la Don Kichot fight against illegal immigrants whom are already here.We should let them stay but as legal "aliens"(how stupid it sound alien..?).Though we should state that every one illegal immigrant who come here since than has to be aware of consequence and realy define them.Than we may and have right to crack on illegal immigration,people who hire illegals etc. Law shouldn't "go backwards".
