Okay, end of semester or not, I can’t keep away from the blog.
It doesn’t help that there has actually been some news on immigration of late. The above link will take you to the Migration Policy Institute’s website and a list of the top 10 immigration issues for 2006 (world wide). They include:

US Immigration Reform: Better luck next year
All about Borders. Well, actually only the U.S.-Mexico Border. To the north we act as if we do not have one. The point is that as a nation we have become fixated on the border as the location of the solution for our immigration problems.
State and local governments respond to Immigration. Mainly as a response to failed national policies, localities like Hazleton, PA have enacted their own legislative “solutions” to immigration.
