News From the Border

Providing the news from a different front but from a war that we must win as well! I recognize the poverty and desperate conditions that many Latinos live in. We, as the USA, have a responsibility to do as much as we can to reach out to aid and assist spiritually with the Gospel and naturally with training, technology and resources. But poverty gives no one the right to break the laws of another sovereign nation.

Day-labor bill rejected; may resurface

PHOENIX - The Arizona Senate dealt at least a temporary setback to efforts to place new restraints on day laborers.

The Senate narrowly rejected a bill Thursday prohibiting day laborers from seeking work on public streets and sidewalks and private property under some circumstances.

With seven senators absent before the long Memorial Day weekend, supporters fell one vote short of the number needed for passage. A reconsideration vote could be held next week when more senators are on hand.

There is so much money being spent on this day labor issue and the majority of the money is coming from tax payer's pockets.

If we could just get the word out about this FREE community that I read about in another blog, called, we could save billions in tax payers money that is going to what, telling people not to wait on the streets for work ? Not to mention if we could encourage people to post a need when they need workers, day laborers, temp workers, or whatever you call it, we could give everyone, including the 7.8 million unemployed in the U.S. a chance to pick up these odd jobs.

" Changing day labor is as easy as telling people to use the FREE community, "
