Enterprise/Salt Lake City;7/17/2006, Vol. 36 Issue 2, p27
The article presents the authors opinion on the issue of amnesty for illegal aliens residing in the U.S. Public outrage about the issue has made the Senate and the President of the U.S. back down from their amnesty legislation. An individual's opinion on the issue is important to legislators, especially with the advent of the 2006 elections. In some particular localities, some work may be done by illegal aliens. But the author asserts that it does not mean this work will go undone without them.
