ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the laws against illegal immigration, in light of the revelation that terrorist Mohamed Atta had received a student visa in the U.S. To weaken the laws against illegal immigration the U.S. House voted 275-137 for a bill which supported immigration in the country. The House voted to make it possible for illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S. legally upon payment of a $1,000 fine for their lawbreaking. The congressmen who voted against the bill were accused of exploiting the terror attacks to advance their anti-immigrant agenda.
