3rd Feb – This includes a useful 3 minute video explaining from the White House’s point of view the rationale for the Bi-partisan Immigration Reform Bill, currently in the Senate. This also has various links that go into this bill in more detail, which I recommend. This Bill is currently facing some opposition from the Republican’s, who support the need for reforming/tightening up the current immigration laws in the USA, but who are also concerned that potentially 11 million new voters maybe created if the amnesty for existing illegal immigrants Obama wants goes ahead (… If the Democrats gave you citizenship, who might you vote for!?).
Useful stuff for various topics in bot Units, e.g. Race & Ethnicity, Federalism, President & Congress.
