I just returned from an interview at CNN for their report on today's marches across the nation in favor of an amnesty. Reporters told me the turnout is very small -- with only a couple of dozen showing up for the Washington D.C. rally. The marches help put America's choices this year in stark relief: Either legalize the illegal aliens so they can STAY (what the marchers want) or pass the SAVE Act to take away nearly all legitimate jobs so the illegal aliens will LEAVE (what most Americans want).

In anticipation of the upcoming primaries and caucuses, NumbersUSA's Roy Beck continues to revise his ratings again on 14 Presidential candidates of both Parties, assessing the quality of their promises in 16 immigration categories.

And the re-emergence of McCain as a viable candidate is interesting, given his almost uniformly bad or poor immigration ratings.

Five-year Amnesty Bill Under Discussion

Some House Democrats are having behind-the-scenes discussions about creating a special visa for illegal aliens they believe will enjoy considerable Republican support. Under the plan, illegal aliens who can prove they have jobs and pass a criminal background check will receive the gift of legal status for 5 years. The plan is designed to attract pro-business Republicans and those who backed the McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill by also increasing the number of visas issued for technical, temporary and agricultural workers.
