April 23 (Bloomberg) -- “Amnesty” is the swear word many
conservatives apply to the new bipartisan immigration bill. The

American immigration laws, during President George W. Bush’s
second term. Some critics say that offering legal status to
illegal immigrants is simply wrong in principle.
Yet that isn’t the most troubling aspect of the bill. What
ought to be drawing more opposition is the proposal to bring
hundreds of thousands of “temporary guest workers” to the U.S.
