The great Immigration Debate Photo Gallery The News Editor - Brittany The Statistician - Walker The Photo Journalist - Cheyenne The Political Correspondent from Washington - Kellcy The Features Editor - Cheyenne You, whoever you are!...

All you continentals of Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia, indifferent of place!
All you on the numberless islands of the archipelagoes of the sea!
All you of centuries hence when you listen to me!
All you each and everywhere whom I specify not, but include just the same!
Health to you! good will to you all, from me and America sent!
Each of us is inevitable,
Each of us is limitless—each of us with his or her right upon the earth,
Each of us allow'd the eternal purports of the earth,
Each of us here as divinely as any is here. Today's Immigration News Thousands March for Immigration Reform On March 22 2010, there was a march about immigration at Utahns who flood State Street in Salt Lake City , on Sunday. There was so many people was heart broken of the immigration system. There was a man name Wester who said that “proper reform would bled enforcement policy with generosity toward people that would allow them to gain an immigration status, a way toward citizenship and keep families together”. Immigration Obama believes the only way to fix immigration is by putting aside the offer of the solution that secures our boarders. By enforcing our laws reaffirms our heritage as a nation of immigrants. He thinks that the immigration policy should be driven by the best judgment of the economic interest of the United States which would be the best interest for the American workers. Obama is said to protect the integrity of our boarders by investing additional personnel, infrastructure, and technology on our boarders and at ports of entry. To improve our immigration situation Obama said that he is going to fix our dysfunctional immigration situation so that immigrants will be enable to come to the United States illegally because they want to come in and take jobs from us Americans. He has told employers not to hire immigrants if they are undocumented workers in the United States this will enforce they law by not hiring immigrants that came into the United States illegally. When immigrants come into the United States illegally he has a system that makes the undocumented immigrants pay a fine and they must learn English and they have to wait in the back of the line to become a documented citizen of the United States . Obama has said to promote an economic development for Mexico so that it will decrease the desperation of illegal immigration. http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/immigration The president and the vice president have talked about the most continuous issue in the United States immigration. They have talked about reforming the broken immigration system. The president said that the administration is behind immigration reform. The president has also said to be working with the House and the Senate leaders to have a honest conversation and come up with practical ways about immigration. Members of the Congress from both chambers, from the parties have given president Obama some of their ideas. Obama is tightening up the boarder and cracking down on employers that have illegal workers in order to drive down wages. The United States needs a way to recognize and legalize the status of undocumented immigrants that are here working in the United States . http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2009/06/25/working-together-immigration-reform The Department of Homeland Security The Department of Homeland Security is responsible for making immigrants legal U.S citizens. They also provide job authorization and enforce immigration laws, customs laws and air security laws. When you are approved to live in the U.S, you will get a green card. This shows that you are a permanent citizen of the United States.
The Center for Immigration Studies is responsible for keeping track of how many immigrants live in the United States. They also see what kind of jobs immigrants are finding, and what they are getting paid. They keep track of all of this by sending out a monthly census that is filled out and mailed back. This census found that in March of 2000, there were a record high in immigrants in the U.S, 28.4 million immigrants!
The department of labor is the employment and training administration. They give government job training and worker dislocation programs. They also provide unemployment insurance benefits. “In 2004, the Census Bureau estimated that 34 million of the total U.S. population is foreign-born, which represents 12 percent of the total population and is the highest percentage in 70 years.” (Source: U.S. Census Bureau: The Foreign-Born Population in the United States: 2003)
The PBS immigration nation is a site that keeps statistics of immigrants who voted for president, how many live here compared to natives, and how densely populated they are in certain parts of the U.S. nearly one out of eight people are a different ethnicity than white. 54% of people voted for George W. Bush last election. 51% voted for Barrack H. Obama this election. Nearly 41% of the population has a different ethnicity than our native ethnicity in the U.S, compared to other countries which average around 7.5%
The migration policy institute is dedicated to the study of people movement worldwide. They are also nonprofit and non partisan organization. The studies from them show that an annual average of immigrants coming to the U.S is at about 1.8 million people. They are arguing with the DHS (department of homeland security) about this statistic. El Paso Area Law Enforcement Officers Targeted The Department of Homeland Security sent out a security alert to all men and women in uniform to be careful and advise their families to take extra precaution.
Barrio Azteca gang members say they plan to kill law enforcement officers in the El Paso area as retaliation, the department said.
Socorro police Sgt. Refugio Orta was made aware on Monday of the threat against any law enforcement officer in the El Paso area The USCIS Issues Additional Information Regarding the Employ American Workers Act (EAWA) to Employers Filing H-1B Petitions WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) today provides additional guidance regarding the Employ American Workers Act (EAWA) to employers seeking to file H-1B petitions. USCIS understands that some businesses who received covered funding may have subsequently repaid their obligations and may not know how to respond to Question A.1.d. (For information on whether covered funding obligations have been repaid, recipients of TARP funding should seek guidance from the Department of Treasury, or the Federal Reserve, respectively.) If you have repaid your obligations, then answer “No” to Question A.1.d. If you wish to provide further information with the petition to assist USCIS in determining that your status for purposes of EAWA is correct, you may do so. Illegal Immigrant Suspected of Killing an Arizona Rancher In Pheonix A prominent southeast Arizona rancher likely was killed by an illegal immigrant, but there's no evidence to suggest there was any confrontation that led to the shooting, authorities said Monday. The body of Robert Krentz, 58, was located before midnight Saturday on his 35,000-acre ranch about 35 miles northeast of Douglas after his brother reported that he had lost radio contact with Krentz earlier in the day. Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever said Krentz was out checking water line and fencing on the land Krentz's family has ranched since 1907. Krentz had weapons with him in his all-terrain vehicle but didn't use them, according to Dever. Investigators said Krentz apparently came upon one person when he was shot. Krentz was heard telling his brother "illegal alien" on the radio earlier Saturday, and the area of the killing is a known smuggling corridor, according to authorities. While Krentz was still in his vehicle, mortally wounded, he managed to drive the ATV away from the scene at a high rate of speed before becoming unconscious. The ATV still had its lights on and the engine running when authorities found it.

Foot tracks were identified and followed approximately 20 miles south to the Mexico border by sheriff's deputies, U.S. Border Patrol trackers and Department of Corrections dog chase teams, authorities said.
