Subject: Immigration
Source: National Journal
Date: 1-Sep


The National Journal examines the efforts of the federal government to stop illegal immigration from Mexico, which "have produced one of Washington's most challenging policy dilemmas." The story reports that, despite the billions of dollars spent by the government to curb illegal immigration, "the latest Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS) estimates stand at 5 million, while other projections put the figure as high as 11 million." The article reveals that illegal immigrants keep on finding cracks in the wall. The author cites experts who look at the possibility for the U.S.A. to implement a "kind of Marshall Plan for Latin America" in order to create new jobs and opportunities, and to increase purchasing of U.S. products. Another suggested approach is to open more channels for legal entry.
