Get Tight

This article argues that stricter controls are required for immigration procedures in the U.S. A legislation is being passed by the House according to which the creation of a visa document for "nonimmigrant" foreigners will be compulsory. The agencies responsible for immigration have also made changes. The Immigration and Natural Service (INS) has realized that it should start looking for the names of various foreigners who have absconded after being ordered to deport. These names are then being entered into the national crime database of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Another argument is presented which calls for cuts in legal immigration in the wake of enhancing homeland security. But the admission of new immigrants, foreign students and alien labor is an area where the load of INS can be shared.
