Immigrant workers essential for agriculture

Supporters of immigration reform feel that a labor shortage in the United States could result in the process moving along at a quickened pace. The California Farm Bureau Federation, for example, has reported a worker shortage for growers of fruits and vegetables ever since there has been stricter enforcement of our borders during the past two or three years.

Catholic educators proclaim their support of immigration reform

With even Catholic University presidents calling for immigration reform, we hope that the tide is gradually turning.  A letter signed by more than 90 presidents of U.S. Catholic educational institutions that has been sent to a number of members in Congress, including Nancy Pelosi of California, is calling for immigration reform.

Citizenship for immigrants could boost state and local revenues

Some analysts are pushing immigration reform because they feel that it could ultimately benefit the revenues that the various states like California would take in.  One study by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy reported that there would be increased taxes paid by undocumented workers concerning income, sales, excise and property.  Presumably this would happen because these same immigrants would have the opportunity to obtain better jobs and be paid a higher income.

Immigrants waiting for California Governor's signature upon bill

One immigration activist is calling for California's passage of what is called the Undocumented Caravan for Trust Act.  He and many other immigrants are so convinced of the necessity of passing such an act that they even staged a sit-in at the Governor of California's office in hopes that the bill would be signed.

California official offers citizenship in return for bribes

It doesn't help the cause for citizenship of immigrants when immigration officials happen to be corrupt. One Southern California immigration officer has been charged with taking of thousands of dollars (along with egg rolls) from prospective immigrants apparently in the form of bribes. This official is now facing up to 15 years in federal prison for the alleged actions.
