ABSTRACT
The article focuses on issues related to immigration in the U.S. Officials of the Citizenship and Immigration Services say that all field offices of the agency are prepared to assist hurricane victims in replacing official documentation while adhering to security policies and procedures. Many House Republicans and 36 Democrats pushed through a tough new immigration bill that would banish undocumented immigrants from the U.S. on December 16, 2005. It makes illegal presence in the U.S. a misdemeanor crime and also outlines increased penalties for smugglers and those re-entering illegally, while authorizing police along the border to enforce the immigration law.
