... real problem. Thus it is that NC Aizenman and Lisa Rein offer "Easy-to-Get Licenses Expose Md. to Fraud/Out-of-State Illegal Immigrants Exploit Rules" (link). The WaPo appears to be trying to get Maryland to pass a Real ID-compliant two-tier licensing scheme under which illegal aliens would get a license to drive but not to do much more.

... Advocates Call for End to Raids" by NC Aizenman, link. None of those named are major figures, and this was just a show.

... massive/illegal immigration, so NC Aizenman of the Washington Post supplies the orthodoxy (link): Still, Mark Hugo Lopez, co-author of the survey released today, cautioned that the current results may reflect Latinos' increasing concern with the economy more than mounting apathy over immigration.

Doug Feaver will make you "hate" the Washington Post all over again (N.C. Aizenman) - 03/28/08

Doug Feaver runs the Washington Post blog "dot.comments", which appears to consist of attacks against their readers who leave comments rather than attempts to engage those readers' concerns.
