The immigrant aid group HIAS applauded an immigration reform proposal from President Bush. The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, which generally has opposed the Bush administration’s immigration policies — especially post-Sept. 11 detentions of some foreigners — lauded Bush’s proposal to increase the number of work permits for foreigners and offer special three-year visas to foreign workers taking some jobs not filled by Americans.
