Tribune article explores immigration panel's recommendations

The Columbia Tribune looks at the final report of Rep. Ed Emery's special Immigration Committee which, as you recall, includes Emery's assertion that abortion is a major factor in illegal immigration.

Emery said it would be "na├»ve" not to look into the connection. "It’s hard for me to imagine how you can escape drawing a parallel to the fact or at least asking the question: Would that condition still be here if in fact we had an additional 250,000 Missourians between the ages of 20 and 30?"

From all reports, Emery inserted his opinion into the report even though no testimony was given during his committee's hearings about this abortion connection.
