  • IMMIGRATION :
    • Year in review: The most troubling immigration trends
      "Congress failed to enact any meaningful immigration legislation this year, leaving in place a woefully flawed system.
      Sure, it's a vexing issue. But ignoring the problem only makes matters worse. Here are five troubling trends:

      2. U.S. growers were again left to decide whether to face federal sanctions for hiring illegal workers or lose crops...
      3. The GOP adopted a border enforcement-only approach to immigration just in time for election season...
      4. Federal programs increasingly rely on state and local police to help enforce immigration laws...
      5. The current system for issuing visas and green cards is hurting America’s ability to stay competitive..."
