Republicans against Reform

Beck, Roy
April 1996
National Review;4/8/1996, Vol. 48 Issue 6, p21
The article discusses the decision of six Republican senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee on March 14, 1996 to split the omnibus immigration bill. The decision was hailed as a victory for the business community. By splitting the measure into two bills, legislators can decide to crack down on illegal immigrants without restricting the highly skilled foreign workers who help create more jobs. The Republicans opposing immigration reform are not impressing even the wealthy people. The Republicans seem to believe that the economy will atrophy if the country cannot import 140,000 foreign workers a year to fill skilled-job positions.
