Update: Blogger Conference Call With Ed Meese
Here's a list of those blogging it...

One thing jumped out at me as read this...
Now, I don't claim to be as smart as Ed Meese, but, hasn't it occcured to anyone that the real reason we are in this pickle is because of greedy businesses that were unwilling to do things the right way in the first place. I don't think trust has been indicated yet, in fact trust may never be indicated again.
He pointed me to this Heritage Lecture from Helen Krieble:We believe you should let private employment agencies licensed by the government open offices in Mexico and other countries. We believe that you should empower them to issue guest worker permits with no government-imposed limits.
If there is a job and there is a worker who wishes to have that job, put them together with the profit motive that employment agencies have, which makes them be efficient and do the job well. Nobody comes in with a guest work permit if there isn’t a job, so they’re not standing on street corners hoping you’re going to pick them up to employ them.
I keep hearing ideas like this and I need someone to explain to me how this makes sense. It literally sounds like "but dad, all the cool kids have STD's, I want one too!"
Therer is no possible way a company can prove no American will do a certain job, in fact, won't this be government sanction for those who simply wish to pay less than the prevailing wage?
If I'm wrong here please let me know how, but this doesn't make a lick of sense and merely seems like a workaround for these nasty, greedy business owners to get their low wage slaves with the legal approval of the government.
