Senate Immigration Bill Shows Progress on a Tough Issue (Sen. Larry Craig)

The American people have rightly demanded that Congress solve the national problem of immigration, and the bill announced yesterday was a serious effort to do just that. It has all three legs of the immigration reform stool — increasing border security, reforming our guest worker programs, and addressing the workers already in our country.

While there is no way to please everyone on an issue as complex and divisive as this one, the legislation the Senate will be debating next week has many provisions that will promote our economy, protect the security of our country and its citizens, and deal fairly with both citizens and non-citizens alike. I believe this bill will serve the interests and needs of Idaho and the nation well.
