One of the things that I really like about this medium, is that I'm allowed to express my opinions on any subject that comes to mind. I'm a bit of an opinionated SOB, and am rarely at a loss for words.
But I have to admit, I'm not sure what to make of the immigration bill. I've heard the Lou Dobbs' of the world rail against amnesty, as well as some on the left complain about the bill allowing businesses to continue to take advantage of cheap migrant labor. Plus, there are provisions that supposedly place more weight on an immigrant having a job than on family concerns.
I'm left to wonder, if both sides hate, does that mean its the perfect compromise?
Is this bill really making the best of a bad situation, and is that the best we can hope for?
I'm ready and willing to be convinced for or against this bill. So, folks, tell me why I should be for (or against) this legislation.
