ABSTRACT
The article cites a new report released by the Center for Immigration Studies which found that close to eight million people moved to the U.S. in the past five years. The report comes as the House passed a bill to limit illegal immigration by increasing border security and requiring workplace enforcement of immigration laws. Legislators left the issue of what to do with the 11 million undocumented workers in this country until next year. The House legislation includes such measures as enlisting military and local law-enforcement help in stopping illegal entrants and requiring employers to verify the legal status of their workers.
