Mid-Term Election Results Could Mean Positive Changes
Mid-term elections are over but the debate over immigration reform is far from it. The recent elections highlighted what public opinion surveys have revealed consistently for more than a year: Americans want Congress to produce a serious, lasting, and fair solution to the undocumented immigration crisis. While Americans are growing older and better educated, the U.S. economy is still creating jobs for less-skilled workers.
Forty-five percent of the 55 million job openings expected between now and 2014 will be filled by workers who have a high-school diploma or less. The American Immigration Lawyers Association believes any proposal to reform our immigration system must establish a "break the mold" worker program, creating legal avenues for willing workers to come and work with full labor rights, and the proposal should address those living and working in the U.S. by giving them the opportunity to earn the privilege of legal status.

1996 LAWS DENY NONCITIZENS BASIC RIGHTS
A longtime legal U.S. resident is deported for shoplifting. A young mother, married to a U.S. citizen, is jailed for a bureaucratic snafu ten years ago. These are the stories that prove due process is disappearing. The punishment needs to fit the crime.
Enforcing national security while preserving civil liberties is a delicate balancing act and it's one that the U.S. Government is consistently failing to do. The laws expand the grounds of deportation, subjecting long-term immigrants to mandatory detention and automatic deportation for relatively insignificant crimes such as shoplifting. And because these laws are being applied retroactively, many immigrants have been expelled for first offenses and youthful indiscretions that occurred, in some cases, many decades ago.
The assault on due process and civil liberties for noncitizens continues. For more information, go to www.aila****.
