    GOP Congressman wants to deport every Iranian | Raw Story

    Apparently the text of the 2010 version of the bill is still unavailable, as I could not find it on Barrett's list of sponsored legislation.

    How stupid. I have a friend that is an Iranian, and she is very vested in being an American.

    If it's true it certainly is a horrible idea, but the press release from Barrett's Congressional website didn't mention anything about deporting people of these nationalities. And without the text of the bill for reference I'm not sure of the accuracy of this claim.

    the source was Raw Story. There is no other source I am aware of, and you want to slander a man based on the slander of a mentally ill hate site?

    I guess we will find out.

    Iranian-Americans Reported Among Most Highly Educated in U.S.

    Washington -- Iranian-Americans are far more numerous in the United States than census data indicate and are among the most highly educated people in the country, according to research by the Iranian Studies Group, an independent academic organization, at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

    The group estimates that the actual number of Iranian-Americans may top 691,000 -- more than twice the figure of 338,000 cited in the 2000 U.S. census. According to the latest census data available, more than one in four Iranian-Americans holds a master's or doctoral degree, the highest rate among 67 ethnic groups studied.

    That's the most intelligent thing I have heard said in Washington in the last 9 months. Think we could get Iraqis and Mexicans added to that list?
