    As Mark Twain might say, reports of the Immigration Bill's death have been highly exaggerated. The bill might have been killed for the second time, but today's Wall Street Journal reports that at least three key parts of it may still have life (one of which, the Dream Act, I've previously written about). Yes, it's like Freddy Kruger. The bill never completely dies. These, too, must be killed: It ain't over 'til it's over.

    North American CEO group recommends Canada import temporary workers Canada and Mexico should accelerate efforts to import temporary Mexican energy workers to alleviate the skills shortage in Alberta and other provinces as oil sands development ramps up, top North American CEOs will recommend today.

The 30 chief executive officers make up the North American Competitiveness Council, formed last year to advise political leaders on strengthening...

    YAKIMA — Some farmers in Eastern Washington are looking to hire as many as 1,000 seasonal farmworkers from Mexico under a federal guest-worker program, as concerns about a labor shortage this season heighten. Last year, a severe drought in the Yakima Valley, as well as reduced crop size, enabled growers to avert a serious labor shortage, by most accounts. Still, two employers were able to justify hiring 90 workers from Thailand to harvest apples under the federal H-2A program, which allows farmers to bring in foreign workers if they can prove a labor shortage exists. This year's unprecedented recruiting comes...

    WASHINGTON – President Bush has recently been promoting his proposals for a large temporary worker program as a way to effectively enforce immigration laws. As Mr. Bush presents it, such a program to address growing concerns over the flow of illegal workers would rest securely on a "win-win" basis in the following ways: • The willingness of temporary workers and employers to participate in the program would allow both to "win." • The U.S. economy would benefit from higher productivity without increasing tax burdens for existing public services. • U.S. politicians would gain support from employer groups or sympathetic ethnic...

    The Bush Amnesty Plan: A Tragedy in Three Acts by William Buchanan Posted Jan 30, 2004 Many individual events have occurred during the Bush Administration's tenure. However, there is one theme that consistently flows through the administration's domestic security initiatives. It is an undisguised, almost obsessive effort to eliminate our southern border. Complementing this endeavor is the one and only goal of Mexico's Fox administration—to drive as many Mexicans into the United States as possible. Bush's new "temporary worker" plan, in rapacious pursuit of cheap labor and votes, prefigures national self-destruction, while Fox seeks to maintain the corrupt and oppressive...

    Bush Immigration Plan Borders On Treason By Chuck Baldwin Food For Thought From The Chuck Wagon January 9, 2003 President George W. Bush wants to give some eight to ten million illegal aliens, most of them from Mexico, legal status. The plan would legalize these aliens as "temporary workers," which would allow them to work freely in the United States without fear of deportation. The plan is so disastrous to our country's well being and so fraught with potential risk to our country's security that the plan should be regarded as bordering treason! Already, more than ten percent of Mexico's...
