What has to happen before "the lights come on"?

by JP Bill - 2/25/13 1:14 PM

By "lights" I mean that imaginary light that appears above your head when you get a good idea. We've all seen them before...sometimes over our own head.

Arizona Business Owners: McCain Hecklers Missing the Point

On Tuesday, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) engaged in a heated debate with audience members at a town hall in Arizona over a bipartisan plan to propose new immigration reform measures -- which include a hotly debated path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. While the crowd that gathered to hear McCain speak was less than enthusiastic about the idea, some local entrepreneurs say they gladly welcome the promise of immigration reform.

"There is a disconnect between some residents and business owners," says Todd Landfried, the executive director for Arizona Employers for Immigration Reform. "Part of it has to do with people not knowing the facts, and part of it is people not wanting to know the facts — they're just dead-set in opposition against any kind of reform."

David Jones, CEO of the Arizona Construction Association, agrees with Landfried that comprehensive immigration reform is crucial to Arizona's economic future. Regarding construction, Jones says peaks in needing labor come on a weekly basis - a timeline that he says doesn't work with the current visa process.
