Majority Leader Bill Frist, who is looking at running for president in 2008, prepared his own bill focused more narrowly on tightening borders and said the Senate will begin debating it the week after next if the Judiciary Committee cannot agree on a broader bill by then. "Our country needs security at our borders in order to slow the flow of illegal immigration and make America safer from foreign criminals and terrorists," said Frist, a Tennessee Republican. He said giving the committee beyond March 27 to reach an accord would mean the Senate would not have the full two weeks he's set aside to debate immigration and border security issues and pass a bill. The House passed a bill in December that makes it a felony for illegal immigrants to be hi the United States, imposes new penalties on employers who hire them and erects fencing along a third of the U.S.-Mexico border. Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter, R- Pa., said he understands Frist's parliamentary reasons for filing the bill. But he said he remains apprehensive of the "chaos" resulting from handling complicated immigration and border security issues on the Senate floor. He said he would prefer to do the work in committee. He was adamant the Senate would deal with allowing some illegal immigrants to stay under what critics say is an "amnesty" program and ensuring that U.S. employers have a source of low-wage labor from abroad. "This bill is not going to leave the Senate floor without addressing those subjects," Specter said. Minority Leader Harry Reid called Frist's move unfortunate, saying the Senate could turn to other work on its calendar, such as lobbying reform, while negotiators try to figure out a way to let some of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants stay. "On an issue as complex and significant as immigration, we need bipartisan solutions, not partisan ultimatums," said Reid, D-Nev. Specter set a committee vote for March 27 on two bills with competing proposals on dealing with illegal immigrant workers. One by Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., would let illegal immigrants stay for six years if they stay employed and pay a $1,000 fine. They would then become eligible for permanent residency. "It's not getting out of jail free," said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., because the illegal immigrants would have to pay another $1,000, learn English and have paid all the taxes they owe. ' Sens. John Cornyn, R- Texas, and Jon Kyi, R-Ariz., have an alternative that would let employed illegal immigrants stay for five years, but they would have to leave then, pay fines and then apply to reenter the country. The growing tide of illegal immigrants arriving in the country has triggered an outcry from governors and become a hot election-year issue. • "It's a tough year because everything gets a little more partisan, gets a little more political," Frist said. Associated Press Writer Jim Abrams contributed to this report. Email Robbery Continued from PageA-1 Mendocino Remedies was one of the cannabis clubs owned by 39-year-old Laytonville resident Les Crane, who was found dead in his home on Nov. 18, of 2005. Jennifer Dewey, who was hi the home at the tune, said four to six men broke into the house, attacked her and the other residents of the house, killed Crane and stole an unknown amount of cash and processed marijuana. Crane's murder is still under investigation and the results of forensic evidence gathered at the scene are still pending from a Department of Justice lab. Broin said he did not feel that the recent robbery and Crane's murder were connected, but said that the Sheriff's office was not ruling anything out. Duncan is being held on a $100,000 bond at the county jail. Ben Brown can be reached at Continued from Page A-l here," said Sen. Dean Florez, D-Shafter. "The whole idea of net neutrality gets wiped away, and we are left with an Internet of haves and have-nots," said Florez, who is covening an April meeting of a newly formed legislative panel he chairs. AOL spokesman Nicholas Graham said the company flatly disagrees. "We look forward to providing Mr. Florez with the true facts and a clear picture of what we're doing with certified e-mail and with our new, pro-bono, free e-mail delivery program for nonprofits and nonprofit advocacy organiza- tions," he said. Florez said the Senate Select Committee on E- Commerce, Wireless Technology and Consumer Driven Programming will consider legislation aimed maintaining the Internet as a "great equalizer." Legislators are faced not only with the e-mail tax but also with "a multitude of issues from phishing and malicious pop-up ads to identity theft and on-line gaming," he said. In a complication, the developments at the state level come as Congress considers rewriting major federal telecommunications law that includes oversight of the Internet The fear among some email users is that they will have to pay or risk being blocked as senders of spam, according to Internet experts and bloggers. Users also believe the Dulles, Va.-based company will have little incentive to maintain reliable e-mail services for. regular customers, who they would rather have switch to the new program from which the firm will profit, according to analysts. Watchdog groups, including the Berkeley political group, have drawn dozens of organizations to the cause of opposing certified e-mail. The coalition has set up a Web site for petitioners at "The groups have organized because they feel the fee will have a negative impact on small businesses, charities and even families that have exten- sive mailing lists," said Elizabeth Millard of the NewsFactor Online Magazine. But Mitch Irsfeld, who writes the Messaging Pipeline blog for TechWeb, rejects most of the critics' fears and arguments. Irsfeld.said "e-mail tax" is misleading because it's an optional service, receivers of certified e-mails will have to grant access, and that existing e-mail services won't be degraded over time. Much smaller Internet operations already are operating certified e-mail systems, he added. "AOL must be feeling a bit picked on at this point," Irsfeld said. "When AOL makes a move in the public email realm, everyone feels it" NOYO THUIRE Pin.
