They should be in prison, not rewarded. I'm surprised Bush doesn't want to find the families of the hijackers, and compensate them too.

Thank God this illegal alien loving moron is almost out of office. The problem being that the two parties gave us all two illegal loving Presidential candidates. We will have to be on our toes so that we can swamp the telephones for Congress when they start, and make no mistake, they will start it all again.

Immigrant relatives of 9/11 dead granted temporary legal status, hope to make it permanent -- Newsday.com (broken link)

NEW YORK (AP) _ The federal government has granted temporary legal
status to 15 illegal immigrants who lost a spouse or a child in the
Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Their lawyer says some of them cried tears of joy when they heard about
the Department of Homeland Security's decision Friday.

Debra Brown Steinberg says the department has granted legal standing to
the 15 for one year, a term that could be extended.

With the relatives now free to come forward without fear of deportation,
Steinberg hopes Congress will act on a proposal to grant them permanent
legal status.

All 15 got payments from the federal Sept. 11 Victim Compensation Fund.
