ANALYSIS/OPINION:

On Veterans Day 2011, the media was awash in stories about the high rate of unemployment among veterans. At the same time, members of Congress issued hollow statements about the importance of appreciating the sacrifices of young Americans serving abroad, while President Obama did his usual thing at Arlington National Cemetery (“Obamas mark Veterans Day at Arlington Cemetery,” Web, Friday).

What needs to be asked of these two-faced politicians is why the federal government is permitting 7 million illegal immigrants to keep their nonfarming jobs in the construction, manufacturing, transportation and the service and hospitality industries. Is this how a “grateful nation” thanks those who served?
