Reactions have been pouring in to the latest iteration of the No Match Rule, which Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff introduced last week. Chertoff hopes the changes in the rule will be enough to get a federal judge to lift an injunction and allow enforcement. Articles of note on the subject include the following:
- Associated Press article: According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the ongoing legal dispute is not about illegal workers, but about a poorly-thought-out rule that would cost many legal workers their jobs.
- Los Angeles Times article: “The move could affect millions of workers — citizens and immigrants alike ….” (may require free registration)
- San Antonio Express: The new rule has “no substantial changes” and relies on the same flawed database, according to the American Civil Liberties Union.
- Washington Post article: Critics say the proposal “would probably set off a new round of litigation that could outlast the president’s waning term.” (may require free registration)
- Orlando Sentinel editorial: “What’s needed is a more thoughtful approach that addresses more than one aspect of the problem.”
