Are Senators Christopher Dodd and Joseph Lieberman representing New Britain, New London and New Canaan, Connecticut. Or, are they representing New Delhi?
The two Senators have among the worst records on immigration in the United States Senate. Americans for Better Immigration gives Dodd a D+, while it gives Lieberman a solid F.
Senator Christopher Dodd is now a co-sponsor of the AgBill to let another 50,000 agricultural workers flood the Midwest. He voted for a huge increase in immigration in 1990. He voted in 1996 to continue chain migration (family members invite relatives in the USA). He voted to increase the number for foreign high-tech workers in 1998 and again in 2000. In 2002, Dodd co-sponsored legislation to grant amnesties under Senate Bill 2493. Senator Lieberman had his face on television at the end of the year touting the pbuttage of the Intelligence Reform Bill. However, Lieberman was a key Democrat keeping the House provisions for driver's license fraud out of the final bill. His comment was that "immigration reform can wait." Wait for what Senator? Another 3,000 dead?
Senator Lieberman is a member of the Senate's India Caucus, so he can more effectively represent the citizens of New Delhi. The good Senator has written to INPAC (the political action committee for India) telling them he supports more H-1B visa holders coming in from India.
When you see all those Indian computer programmers going into the insurance companies in Hartford, who have replaced American workers, they thank Lieberman and Dodd for their efforts on their behalf. According to TORAW (the CT computer programmer organization), 70,000 computer programmers in Connecticut have been put out of work by this influx of foreign workers.
The impact of excessive legal and mbuttive illegal immigration on citizens of the State is not slight. It is estimated that there is a minimum of 50,000 illegals in the State of Connecticut. The Federation of American Immigration Reform estimates that it costs the citizens of Connecticut $59 million dollars a year to educate the illegal children brought into the State. This does not count the children of illegals born here and deemed to be citizens of the USA. About 20% of the 16,000 prisoners in Connecticut are Hispanic, but the number of illegals is not known. This is a cost of $80 million per year.
The illegals hurt the economy three ways. First, they do not pay any taxes for illegal work costing the State revenue. Second, they have high costs for education, welfare, housing and crime. Third, they unemploy greatest on low-income Americans and especially low-income African-Americans. Connecticut would not have a budget problem, if it did not have an immigration problem.

But, the good Senators don't seem to notice. One can only conclude that Senator Dodd and Senator Lieberman have done an excellent job of protecting the jobs of the people they represent: illegals and workers from New Delhi.
