New Immigration Bill

Some potentially important news: There's an immigration bill now pending, which seems to be based on President Bush's reform principles. I haven't read it yet, but both Senators McCain and Kennedy support it, which makes me apprehensive. Even so, some solid Republican congressmen, Jim Kolbe and Jeff Flake, are sponsors in the House. Kolbe's press release on the bill is here. The bill features a guest worker provision, which the hard-core anti-immigrationists will fight.

I'll be analyzing the bill over the weekend. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
