Immigration reform needs some common sense

January 2006
Business Journal Serving Fresno & the Central San Joaquin Valley;1/6/2006, Issue 323501, p22
The article reflects on the U.S. House of Representatives' approval of the Border Protection, Antiterrorism and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005. The bill focuses on border security and fails to address the key components of employment, the legal status of illegal immigrants and the responsibilities of employers to those immigrants. The author suggests that the President George W. Bush Administration must advance a fair and equitable immigration policy that includes a reliable identification system or process and employers must play an important documentation role in a guest worker program.
