News & info:

  • From Reuters, via Yahoo News: Lawmakers seek to crack down on illegal immigrants. “Life for the estimated 10 million illegal immigrants living in the shadows in the United States could soon get even tougher as states and the federal government pass new legislation cracking down on them.” Tougher? Tougher? It wasn’t tough enough already? The article goes on with: “In several states, legislators have proposed and in some cases passed bills barring illegal immigrants and their families from receiving health, welfare and other public benefits.” Lovely. Yet another reason to make sure you go out and vote… to make sure that the people passing these laws understand we aren’t going to stand for them.
