ALONG THE AXIS OF GOOD:

Amnesty For Illegal Migrants Symbolizes Poland's Shift From Emigration Source To Economic Power (PALASH R. GHOSH, July 3, 2012, IB Times)

Polish authorities have provided amnesty benefits to more than 8,500 illegal immigrants, granting them the right to live and work in one of Europe's most robust economies for a period of two years.

The program, originally announced in January, principally benefits migrants who have lived continuously in Poland for at least four years, but those who were refused refugee status prior to January 2010 are also eligible.

"Persons who have been living illegally in Poland for four years will finally be able to work legally, send their children to school, have a fixed address and will no longer be victims of abuse," Warsaw regional governor Jacek Kozlowski told local reporters.
