There's Nothing as Permanent as a Temporary Worker

By Mark Krikorian on November 26, 2008

Mexico is offering compensation for guest workers to the U.S. who'd had part of their wages withheld (money the Mexican government and banks just kept — i.e., stole). This happened 60 years ago. And many of the workers seeking the money now live in the United States — guests who never left! Does anyone seriously think a new "temporary" worker program could turn out any differently?
