New York Amsterdam News;7/17/2008, Vol. 99 Issue 30, p14
The author focuses on the immigration reforms proposed by the U.S. presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain. McCain's reforms center on restricting border security policies and flexible labor market to keep employers in business while providing a policy for skilled Americans and immigrants with opportunity. On the other hand, Obama wants to secure the borders and ports of entry by fixing the dysfunctional immigration bureaucracy and increase the number of legal immigrants.
