Bush's Temporary Worker Plan
As many of us are aware, illegal immigration is becoming an issue of greater concern daily. The effect that such illegal immigration has on our country’s economy is very powerful. President Bush has proposed a "Temporary Worker" plan which will enable illegal immigrants a chance to legally obtain work in the
for three years. Afterwards, the workers would have a chance to renew their permits. Although Bush's plan is not without its flaws, I believe it is a step in the right direction. I feel that some type of action needs to be taken in order to change the current situation which is only worsening. After the initial action is taken we can then make the necessary adjustments to correct the flaws. To reject Bush's plan or some version of it and expect that the current situation is going to improve without any action being taken would be pretty stupid of us. The bottom line is that if something is not done soon, illegal immigration will continue to weaken our boarders, thus increasing chances for terrorist acts and will further the strain which it already places on Medicaid.
