Re: Joe Guzzardi`s Column: Meet the Senate Judiciary Committee—Your Fate Is In Its Hands Right Now

Might it be appropriate to ask why the Judiciary Committee even has jurisdiction over immigration? Shouldn`t it be a matter for the Department of Defense or the Department of Labor?

Even by Senate standards the Judiciary Committee is perhaps the least representative of Americans as a whole since nearly all of its members are lawyers. [VDARE.COM note: the non-lawyers are Charles Grassley, Tom Coburn, Herbert Kohl and Dianne Feinstein]

As professions and trades go, lawyers are easily the most immune to our current immigration boondoggle.

Not many illegal aliens have law degrees. And even it they did, they couldn`t practice.

Almost none of the people admitted under H1-B visas or family reunification are lawyers. 

Many H1-Bs are computer scientists or engineers. I don`t think I`m going out on a limb to suggest that there isn`t any senator with a degree in computer science or engineering.

The more I think about it perhaps an altogether new and separate committee should be formed.
