A Drain On Our Social Services

They come to our country, they learn the language, they work hard to give their kids an education so they'll have the opportunities their parents never had...and yet some second-generation Mexican-Americans still have trouble integrating themselves into the workplace.

Alberto R. Gonzales, like many others recently unemployed, has discovered how difficult it can be to find a new job. Mr. Gonzales, the former attorney general, who was forced to resign last year, has been unable to interest law firms in adding his name to their roster, Washington lawyers and his associates said in recent interviews.

He has, through friends, put out inquiries, they said, and has not found any takers. What makes Mr. Gonzales’s case extraordinary is that former attorneys general, the government’s chief lawyer, are typically highly sought.
