...your huddled masses yearning to maximize earnings during each two-year window
(by Amy Traub from DMIBlog) The most recent immigration compromise bill (large pdf) in the Senate is coming up for criticism from almost every angle, from business interests to the immigrant advocates, labor unions, and the anti-immigrant right.
It appears there's no one who likes the bill in its current form but President Bush.

In yesterday's column, Brooks argues that, rather than an incoherent hodge-podge of contradictory provisions, the bill somehow appropriately establishes a system of tough but fair incentives for immigrants.
