Massive Flaws in Senate Immigration Bill

The Senate immigration bill supported by Ted Kennedy and George Bush will make things worse for high-tech businesses, according to a news story in The New York Times and an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal.

While making things worse for many categories of skilled legal immigrants, the bill would allow many categories of illegal aliens with criminal records to receive amnesty without even paying back taxes.

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) has a list of 20 loopholes in the Senate immigration bill that show that is is nothing more than a scam to deceive the American people. It turns out that virtually everything positive that has been said about the bill is false, and that its sponsors have not been honest with the public about its contents.

Given how much better the bill treats illegal aliens than those who seek to come to America legally, my wife, a French immigrant, wonders why she even bothered to go to the time and expense of immigrating legally.
