Background checks delayed. Hearings scheduled at least 12 times over five years. The woman's lawyers, fearing their fragile client had become suicidal, were so alarmed they appealed to two members of Congress - not to intervene, but to call attention to what they say is a system in desperate need of reform. "So many things are wrong, it's hard to know where to start," says Judy London, one of two Los Angeles lawyers who represented the Cameroon mother."

      Farming Industry Urges State Lawmakers to Kill Costly Immigration Measures

      "Conservative lawmakers in Arizona actually voted down an immigration omnibus bill last month after a group of 60 Arizona business executives—including the CEOs of Pet Smart and U.S. Airways—sent a letter to the Arizona Senate urging lawmakers not to proceed with the bills.

      The letter cited costly economic boycotts, a decline in sales, lost jobs and cancelled contracts in their plea to halt legislation."
