Aliens with Shady Pasts & Commercial Product Packaging: June 19, 2008

In the Senate, here is a bill that sends strong message about helping immigrants with shady pasts, though there is bound to be criticisms about whether you need to (and how to) prove the individual knew of the aliens past:

By Mr. SESSIONS (R-LA) (for himself, Mr. DURBIN (D-IL), Mr. COBURN (R-OK), and Mr. CORNYN (R-TX):
S. 3166. A bill to amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to impose criminal penalties on individuals who assist aliens who have engaged in genocide, torture, or extrajudicial killings to enter the United States; to the Committee on the Judiciary. Source: GPO [S5832]

In the House, Rep. Weiner introduced a bill, as Congress continues to move towards more conservation programs and initiatives, to reduce packaging in commercial products:

H.R. 6325. A bill to require the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency to establish a plan to reduce the total amount of packaging used on consumer products in the United States; to the Committee on Energy and Commerce.
