Immigration Debate
December 14th, 2005

An editorial in The New York Post argues that “immigrants practically can’t work legally in the sectors where there’s greatest demand for their labor.” Skilled immigrants can apply for a temporary permit but unskilled immigrants can’t. “We get a lot of calls for nannies,” says Nilie Pajoohi, an immigration attorney in New York, “but there is no temporary category for that. People would go through the legal means to hire them but there is no category for foreign-born unskilled labor.”

Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote on this week on legislation that would severely increase penalties for employers who hire undocumented immigrants. It would eliminate the rights not only of undocumented immigrants but also legal residents to immigration hearings and due process before they are detained or deported.

“It is foolish to pretend that we have somehow solved our immigration or security concerns by making it harder for people to come or stay here. That is not immigration reform, ” writes Congressman Joe Crowley in the Irish Voice.

    After I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any means you may take away me from that service? Thanks!

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution
    and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had
    to ask!

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers
