for over five years, said he is skeptical
of Borders' recent hiring practices in
light of the strike. "Borders last week

At a meeting Tuesday night, the
Michigan Student Assembly debated
the passage of a resolution that
pledged student support for the Union.
Ultimately, the resolution failed.
MSA President Angela Galardi said
she was upset that the resolution did
not pass. "Some (representatives) got
bogged down with numbers and living
wage ideas where this is simply more
about asking a corporation to negotiate
with workers just as we ask the admin-
istration to negotiate with us over stu-
dent issues. It's about bringing people

suggested the organization allow pub-

Rackham student Neravan
Rojchaichaninthorn expressed doubt
that economically empowered coun-
tries such as the United States would
take the interests of developing nations
into consideration when deciding trade
disputes and establishing policies.
"I don't think it can be done in a

Rojchaichaninthorn said. "Bilateral

ensure the security of passengers,
while the 2002 Enhanced Border
Security and Visa Reform Act tight-
ened constraints on aliens.
Overall, the stringency of the poli-
cies has cast a shade of unrest among
international students at the Universi-
ty, said Louise Baldwin, assistant
director of the University of Michigan
The polices "caused more anxiety
among students," she said.
Tighter immigration policies also
coincide with a slight decrease in new
international students enrolled at the
University from last year, according
to the Office of the Registrar. Unoffi-
cial figures released to Baldwin by
the Office of the Registrar show that
whereas 1,392 new foreign students
enrolled at the University in 2002,
1,332 new students enrolled this fall.
But Jain said most travel policies
have not deterred many foreign stu-
dents from attending the University.
"Right now I don't see (most poli-
cies) as a hindrance for international
students to come into the country,"
Jain said. "The only way it makes a
difference is when you're in line at the
Jain added that international stu-
dents will be critical of broad-sweep-
ing measures - such as US-VISIT -
that place every traveler under scrutiny.
"There are thousands of students
coming here and if you start finger-
printing everyone, time will go up and
it will just become a hassle for stu-
dents," Jain said, adding that the
process "might be offensive" to some.
While she said she could not tell
whether US-VISIT will inconven-
ience international students at the
University, Baldwin said, "Anytime
you make getting into the U.S. more
difficult and you have to go through
more procedures, it's certainly dis-
couraging to people."
Aside from international students
flying in and out of Detroit Metropoli-
tan Airport, US-VISIT may not
impact many travelers in southeast
Michigan - only 8.3 percent of pas-
sengers at the airport travel interna-
tionally, according to numbers
provided by the Wayne County Air-
"In terms of creating an inconven-
ience at the airport, I don't think (US-
VISIT) will," airport authority
spokesman Michael Conway said.
"For the majority of our passengers, it
will be invisible for them."
Federal officials have already eval-
uated Detroit Metro for US-VISIT
systems, Conway said.
