Simpler times

I'm not sure how much of an issue immigration will be in the 2008 presidential campaign. I don't know much about Barack Obama's stance on the issue, but I'd bet it's similar to that of John McCain.

It appears immigration was an issue 100 years ago, but it was dealt with in a more straightforward manner:
Today's Highlight in History:

In 1907, President Theodore Roosevelt signed an immigration act which excluded "idiots, imbeciles, feebleminded persons, epileptics, insane persons" from being admitted to the United States.
