Source Notes

Summary: This information relates to my topic because it’s an opinion that makes the argument that the employers should be the target of immigration problems in the U.S.

Topic: Should employers be held accountable by the Department of Homeland Security for hiring illegal immigrants?
Category: Journalistic, blog
What is it? This is a short opinion write-up from the USA Today.

Title: Blame Employers, not Illegal Immigrants
Publication Information: USA Today- Opinion, March 1, 2007
Author: Peter Lawson
Location: Columbus, Ohio
Accessed: Jan. 28, 2009

Support: Peter Lawson represents a normal American citizen (amateur commentator) with an opinion on the immigration issue.  His opinion made it into the USA Today.

Source Analysis:
The USA Today is a nationally recognized newspaper.  It has the widest circulation of any newspaper in the United States, and it is distributed in all 50 states.

Usefulness:
This is useful because the Peter Lawson may not be an expert on immigration.  He represents a single opinion of an “average ” U.S. citizen.  This is important to recognize because it is not always about what the experts think. Lawson thinks that the root of the problem is in the Mexican economy and government.
