  • View from the Left: Immigration Should be a Liberal Issue

    Hillary gets it. Hillary Clinton says she's against illegal immigration. And she would fine employers who hire illegal aliens. Pundits say the New York Democrat is using this hot-button issue to position herself for the 2008 presidential election. It's a way to hit Republicans from the right. Polls show huge majorities of both Republicans and Democrats oppose illegal immigration -- and are frustrated that President Bush won't do a thing to stop it. But this issue does not belong to the right. Or it shouldn't. Illegal immigration hurts most liberal causes. It depresses wages, crushes unions and kills all hope...

    MEXICO CITY - Mexico will send a diplomatic letter to the United States protesting the extension of a wall along the U.S.-California border, officials said Friday. Ruben Aguilar, a spokesman for President Vicente Fox, said the president would also continue to pressure the U.S. government to approve a migration accord that would allow more migrants to work legally north of the border. President Bush proposed a temporary work program last year, but it has stalled amid opposition in Congress. Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez said Thursday that Fox had instructed him to send the diplomatic letter with the message...

    Go to the polls on Election Day? So 20th century. A bill in the state Legislature would allow seven counties to forego that tradition and conduct elections by mail only for five years, beginning in 2006. Santa Cruz County could be one of them. County Clerk Gail Pellerin said she is interested in the county participating in such a pilot program if the bill does pass. "Mail-ballot elections tend to cost less and increase turnout," Pellerin said. "It is definitely a concept worth exploring." The bill would need to be signed into law and the county Board of Supervisors would...

    We'll never know, because the records aren't good enough to tell us. But a joint federal-state investigation of last November's election in Milwaukee has found incontrovertible evidence of voter fraud. Fraud seems to have permeated the election in Milwaukee, where John Kerry got his margin of victory; he carried Wisconsin by around 11,000 votes. The Milwaukee investigation has revealed that the number of ballots counted there exceeds, by 4,609, the number of people recorded as voting. There is no evident explanation for this other than ballot box stuffing. In addition, investigators found "more than 200 cases of felons voting illegally...
