Tom Head Biography

Title:
Civil Liberties Guide at About.com
Position:
Pro to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“Amnesty, combined with serious penalties for employers that hire undocumented workers in the future, is the only real way out of the situation we’re currently in. It is the most decent option we have, and it is also the option most likely to secure the border and end the system of undocumented worker exploitation–which is precisely why our well-funded leaders in Washington have no intention of pursuing it.”
