"Immigration overshadowed on presidential campaign trail"

From the AP:

Neither President Bush nor Sen. John Kerry has devoted much attention lately to his plan for fixing America's failed immigration policies — a sticking point for states paying the financial and human costs of the thousands of workers who sneak into the country each year.

While the candidates laid out plans for confronting the problem earlier in the race, illegal immigration has been overshadowed by Iraq, the war on terror and the economy in the final weeks of the campaign...

Given the report about 25 Chechen terrorists possibly entering from Mexico, that might change soon. Especially if Bob Schieffer asks a tough question at the final debate.
