This article reports that since September 11, 2001 the U.S. has struggled to find a balance between national security and a stable economy. The security measures the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush has implemented since the terrorist attacks have made it increasingly difficult for foreign workers to enter the country. A bi-partisan bill that Senators John McCain, Edward Kennedy and several other Congressmen introduced in May 2005 could put an end to the country's immigration problems. If passed, the Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act would allow many of the illegal workers already in the U.S. to stay, as well as make it easier for immigrant laborers seeking work in the U.S. to enter the country legally.
