New Wind on Immigration

The furious wind that swept through some states over undocumented immigration during the presidential campaign seems to be subsiding. If the State of Virgina, a scene of site of the sharpest resentments and attacks on immigrants is any indication, a gentler wind is blowing. A state commission has put aside ideas for stiffer restriction and policies and will soon receive recommendation from the Democratic Governor, Timothy M. Kaine, to ease up and provid some benefits previously denied -- like in-state tuition to all graduates of Virginia's schools. (See Washington Post article.)
