Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants in the US

I don't know if President Bush can, but does anyone think he would pardon all illegal immigrants as his last act in office? If he can, I see a lot of anger from his supporters, but how many are left anyway? Would it draw minorities into the Republican party, a long goal of conservatives? Could he use as a humanitarian legacy, to attempt to contradict his war in Iraq? I do not have absolute answers to any of these questions, but I'm interested in the opinions of others. Here's my opinion. If he can, I will not be surprised one bit. He, and the Republican Party have nothing to lose.

One thing for sure, it will cost more money to get a visa. The fiance visa, which is now $170 will go up this summer to $1028. The adjustment of status which is now $395 will cost $895. Most fees will increase between $300-$800. So if anybody is thinking about any of this, better do it now, or else you'll pay more.

That's shame. It's taxation without representation. I seem to recall a war fought over this matter, but who the Hell learns from history, aside from historians.

I think there are some democrats in the House, that are going to try to stop this from happening (I mean the immigration thing, not the increase in fees) just because it'd made GWB look better in some eyes. On the other hand - and in contrary to what Lou Dobbs says - US economy seems to be really needing this kind of reform, they just can't afford not to do it. But we'll see.

Merged: Immigrant Help Center in th USA

There is very nice website for immigrants in the USA. It offers unbiased information on how to choose a lawyer, paralegal, school, telephone service,ect.

It also has helpful article on civil rights, labor rights, language lessons, American culture and women's issues.
