Editor's Comments of the Day

In a White House press release President Clinton has threatened to veto the appropriations bill for the Departments of Commerce, Justice and State if Congress does not pass the "Latino and Immigrant Fairness Act." The provision of LIFA which is the target of the most criticism is the advancement of the registry date to 1986. Critics of the bill claim that providing and amnesty will only encourage more illegal immigration. The Republicans in the Senate and House were able to outmaneuver the Democrats in getting the H-1B bill passed. If President Clinton follows through on his threat to in effect shut down the government, who would suffer the most? When the Republicans tried to do it several years ago, they were the losers. Is Clinton willing to take the risk of a voter backlash so close to an election? How close will he come to shutting down the government? Close, but no cigar....
