Immigration Reform back on the table

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff will tour the U.S.-Mexico Border this morning with Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) and Michael Pence (R-Indiana) in an effort to give their immigration compromise package a boost. Although the proposed bill is far from perfect, it does offer a path toward legalization and a work visa program *IF* the border can be secured. That's a big if, but nevertheless, for the 11 million undocumented workers in the country, it's a small move in the right direction.
