    3.* ARTICLES
    (a) New Americans In The Silver State
    Mary Giovagnoli et. al of the Immigration Policy Center writes
    "There are few states where the growing political and economic
    clout of immigrants, Latinos, and Asians is as apparent as in
    Nevada."
    http://www.ilw.com/articles/2009,0914-giovagnoli.pdf
    http://www.immigrationpolicy.org/
    (b) Bloggings On Dysfunctional Government
    Angelo A. Paparelli writes "I've railed repeatedly in this blog
    about the abhorrent tendency of federal immigration agencies to
    make sweeping changes in law and procedure merely by issuing
    easily-repudiated press releases and policy memoranda."
    http://www.ilw.com/articles/2009,0914-paparelli.shtm
    http://blogs.ilw.com/angelopaparelli/
    (c) Bloggings On The H-1B Visa
    Anthony F. Siliato and Scott R. Malyk write "When one considers
    the sum of such resources expended -- the only logical conclusion
    one can derive is that H-1B workers are clearly not "cheap labor"
    as some would have you think."

    6.* Headlines
    (a) Where Does Napolitano Stand On Illegal Immigration? Just Look
    At Her Record
    That trusty veto pen is close at hand and this time, the whole
    country, will pay for it.
    (b) E-Verify Hurts the Workforce It's Meant to Protect
    In the bleakest economic climate in a generation, the
    administration's E-Verify policy has given workers yet another
    hurdle to clear:* a flawed, bureaucratic system.
    (c) Physicist Loses Bid for Visa Based on Ability
    An Armenian theoretical physicist who self-published a text book
    and lectures at a California community college does not qualify
    as an "alien of extraordinary ability" for visa purposes, the 9th
    circuit ruled.
    (d) The Obama Administration's Version of Immigration Reform
    Given the policy changes made during his first nine months, it is
    clear that President Obama sees reform through the prism of
    perceived Hispanic votes and union payback.

    http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/archives.shtm
    (a) Dear Editor:
    I think that it should be pointed out that our country was saved
    on 9/11 by none other than Jose Melendez-Perez, the Orlando
    Airport inspector who stopped of the intending hijackers, Mohamed
    al-Kahtani (09/11/09 ID comment). The name Jose Melendez-Perez
    suggests someone who may not have been born in the U.S. It makes
    the anti-immigrant argument a bit harder to swallow, when one
    realizes that it is immigrants who are fighting for the U.S., not
    against the U.S.
    Stephen Berman, Esq.*************** Chicago, IL
    (b) Dear Editor:
    It is misguided for ID to preemptively blame a future terrorist
    attack on Leon Panetta's decision to disband the hybrid
    CIA/Blackwater program "that was responsible for killing
    terrorists overseas" (09/11/09 ID comment). In seven years that
    program did not successfully kill or capture a single terrorist
    according to the New York Times(see CIA Sought Blackwater's Help
    To Kill Jihadists, Aug. 19, 2009 by Mark Mazetti), and the
    involvement of Blackwater made it legally dubious and
    strategically embarrassing.
    Bobby Bell, Esq.**************** El Cerrito, CA
    (c) Dear Editor:
    Yesterdays Comment, "The Next 9 11" (9/11/09 ID) paints with a
    broad brush in speculative fantasy in presuming to privy the
    independent minds of anti-immigrants as if they all moved as a
    flock of birds or schools of fish. If there are "antis", they
    have been created by open border entry advocates who seek
    irresponsible numbers contrary to the prudent limits that govern
    management in other areas such as water, fire, alcohol and
    driving controls. Most "antis" are in fact only advocating
    responsible restriction or used to until the deluge of the entry
    invasion. When bank robbers withdraw funds at an unlawful and/or
    higher rate than normalcy are law abiding customers "anti-
    banking" to make note of it? They may become so, if such
    practices become the norm and even legitimized by any
    "Comprehensive Banking Reform" proposals that would excuse past
    illegalities. Prudent controls and limits should be in place and
    enforced regardless of any past or present 9 11. The longer this
    excess is allowed, the more "antis" will be created out of former
    restrictionists. The letter (9/10/09 ID) of KWE is amusing in
    nitpicking "Democrat" or "Democratic" and a "soft on communism"
    label when BO's past mentors, ministers, and present staff
    including "czars" include some radicals with communist or
    socialist agendas which he has pursued. In a NewsWithViews.com
    article: "Hate America? Count Me Out!", past Presidential
    candidate, Paster Chuck Baldwin writes: "My criticisms and
    condemnations are reserved for those who would remove America
    from her roots, who would strip her of her principles, and who
    would destroy the fabric of her foundation. The wrong man "won"
    or until he is forced to reveal his hidden documents which is
    coming.
    Jim Roberts
    (d) Dear Editor:
    Understand one thing about immigration to the U.S. from any
    country on earth: immigrants are very welcome to America
    (09/11/09 ID comment). Law abiding people who meet the
    qualifications to immigrate to America, that is. People who obey
    the laws of this land, especially the existing immigration laws.
    People who speak English [in addition to their own native
    tongue]. People who prepare themselves to adapt to the culture
    and way of life in America,**** to eventually become Americans.
    People who got in line applying to immigrate to America by
    filling out applications and forms***** and submitting the
    necessary documents required by law.* Not law-breaking people who
    sneak in across the border illegally.* Not people who could not
    and does not speak a word of English. Not people who are
    illiterate and would only suck up government resources through
    public****** assistance, welfare programs and health and
    education programs.** It's time that everybody (the American
    public, the politicians both Democrats and Republicans, and
    especially the Media) knows that what you call the comprehensive
    immigration reform is synonymous to amnesty. And you* will not
    find a single American who supports amnesty. Forget that. Every
    politician who* supports it, and he know this, is spousing a
    quick end to his political career.
    William Donovan
    (e) Dear Editor:
    Robert Bettes' letter's endorsement of President Obama's promise
    to empty our jails of illegal prisoners (many of whom may be
    innocent of the charges against them and just awaiting trial) and
    put them on the next plane home, while harassing employers with
    programs like e-verify, which have yet to be proven any more
    reliable than most other mixed-up government databases, shows
    that the President's pandering to the anti-immigrant lobby may be
    paying off politically (09/11/09 ID comment). But it remains to
    be seen if putting one Hispanic on the Supreme Court while taking
    steps to deport 12 million others is going to help President
    Obama and his party at the polls next year. Do the White House
    and its clueless immigration advisors really think that Hispanic
    and Asian voters don't follow the news about immigration? Mr.
    Bettes' letter gives high unemployment as the reason for
    supporting these misguided and shortsighted "enforcement only"
    policies. Exactly how is throwing millions of immigrants out of
    work and forcing many businesses that employ them to shut down or
    relocate going to reduce unemployment? And didn't Mr. Obama
    promise not to scapegoat immigrants when he was running for
    president? Yet another broken promise for cheap political gain
    from the President who promised us "change we can believe in".
    K.W.E.
    (f) Dear Editor:
    It seems the moral to 911 day is the U.S. Fed does not have a Fed
    911 phone number (09/11/09 ID comment). Try using 202-456-1414
    and ask for the legal council to the office of the president.
    This end run gets me through, and I talk to a lady named Allison
    (look up Allison in Blacks Law Dictionary, and I prefer to think
    in terms of a clear description of a near collision of ships as I
    am prepared and that part of it wont happen).* I await to find
    out if they did 911 day as mercenaries or in their own name?
    Eric Lund
    (g) Dear Editor:
    I do believe that it is good to reform the immigration policies
    (09/11/09 ID comment). But to** say that the immigrants are the
    reason for the unemployment rate is** totally absurd. A majority
    of the people that are on unemployment are** abusing the system.
    There are only a small percentage that are using it** out of true
    need. As a Supervisor in a large company I have seen employees
    begin work and then begin to do anything possible to be
    terminated so they** could get on unemployment. I understand that
    the rates are high but we** need to put the blame where it
    belongs. On the abusers of the system and** on the companies that
    ship jobs to other countries to be able to pay** smaller wages.
    If the companies would remain operating here then there** would
    be more jobs. Also as part of the reform there needs to be a way
    to** help the immigrants who do come here jsut like our ancestors
    to make a** life here an that want to be good citizens. They
    should not be chastized** for wanting better for their families.
    Would we not do the same if it was** us?
    Marilyn Hildago
    (h) Dear Editor:
    ID's editorial (09/11/09 ID comment) that small groups of anti-
    immigrationists "are eagerly awaiting the next 9/11" to close the
    borders indefinately, and put a total stop to immigration for a
    generation or more, is quite revealing about your perspective on
    the next attack. Unfortunately, there will be a next attack. But
    what is surprising, particularly from you, is your conclusion
    that the next attack will be perpetuated by foreigners or non-
    native United States citizens. Quite an indictment of the
    immigrant community by you. I hope you have heard that one of the
    greatest threat to our safety is from "home-grown" terrorists.

    1.* COMMENT
    The Next 9 11
    As another 9/11 anniversary approaches, most Americans are
    thankful that Al Qaeda has not struck again (in no small part due
    to members of our armed forces overseas who are keeping Mr. Bin
    Laden and his ilk in their caves). But there is a small group of
    fanatics in America who are eagerly awaiting the next 9/11: the
    anti-immigrationists. When and if another terrible calamity is
    visited on America, the antis are confident that they can close
    the borders indefinitely, and put a total stop to immigration for
    a generation or more, much as the National Origin Quota Acts of
    1921/1924 did. We believe that contingency plans to this effect
    were made by the Bush administration, and that these will be
    rolled out by whatever administration happens to be around when
    the opportunity is right.
    Furthermore, the anti-immigrationists will then unfairly dump the
    blame on USCIS officials or Consular officials at DOS, by
    pretending that it is humanly possible to weed out one terrorist
    from a million immigration benefit applications. Most of the
    blame should instead justly lie with those within our government
    who deal with foreign intelligence - the decision by the current
    CIA Director to disband the unit responsible for killing
    terrorists overseas is an example of where blame may validly be
    assigned, if indeed events similar to 9/11 are repeated. In the
    rush of emotions following a catastrophe, the antis will try to
    focus America on immigrants instead of the real culprits, and
    propose the broad brush solution of a total black-out of all
    immigration and internment camps for immigrants within America.
    This is not just speculation, this is exactly what America did in
    the past, so the antis have historical precedent.
    Even something far, far short of 9/11 will cause the antis to go
    on the offensive, perhaps to a receptive American public. Those
    in power in the halls of Congress should remember that good times
    do not last for ever. Their power is limited, and their ability
    to effect change is likewise limited, so they need to hurry and
    enact their agenda soon. Fortunately, the basic principles behind
    comprehensive immigration reform have bipartisan support, unlike
    health care reform where the Republicans are united in
    opposition. Perhaps the operating principle used by leaders of
    the Democratic Party - that enacting the health bill will clear
    the path for the immigration bill - is wrong. Perhaps the reverse
    may be the case - moving forward on the immigration bill may
    clear the path for other Democratic priorities. The Democrats
    have a chance at making history - it is up to them to take it or
    blow it. The ball is squarely in Congress's court.

    (a) Dear Editor:
    My apologies to K.W.E. (09/10/09 ID) and any other Democrat
    offended by my arguably (and there is apparently an argument
    about it - c.f. the Iraq war as opposed to the Iraqi war) poor
    grammar. I did not mean to insult Democrats by calling their
    party the Democrat party. Feel free to call mine the Republican,
    or even the Republic party. Like most Republicans, I very likely
    will not care any more than I do when people stumble over my
    name. I shall very likely slip into the usage again, but, not
    being a McCarthyite, I had no idea why it would be insulting and
    a Google search reveals that it sounds a lot like "rat" is the
    reason cited as to why many do find it insulting, though that
    sounds remarkably kindergartenish and is only asserted by those
    claiming offense, not as a rationale by those aware of giving it.
    Answers.com reveals that many parties are officially called the
    "Democrat Party", but our governing party is apparently not. This
    is so despite the use of the term to describe Democrats by the
    press from 1890 to the present and by modern opponents of the
    Democratic Party as diverse as Eisenhower and Harold Staasen as
    well as McCarthy. As God is my witness, I did not mean it to be
    insulting and won't when I use it in the future, which, by force
    of habit, I certainly shall.
    Honza Prchal, Esq.**************** Birmingham, AL
    (b) Dear Editor:
    E-Verify, plus the federal regulation requiring its use among
    federal contractors, will prove once and for all that immigration
    enforcement will work if it is pointed at the employers who hire
    illegal workers.* I don't agree with a lot of Obama policies, but
    I do agree with two of his immigration priorities:* weed out
    illegal aliens locked up in jails and prevent employers from
    easily hiring illegal workers.* It couldn't come at a better
    time, either, with unemployment at 9.7% and rising.

    Effective Rule
    The Wall Street Journal
    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB125236773673291025.html
    reports on the E-Verify rule going into effect for Federal
    contractors. "Agencies across the federal government on Tuesday
    will start ordering contractors to use an electronic system to
    verify whether their employees are eligible to work in the US.
    The sweeping new mandate, crafted by the Bush White House but
    being implemented by the Obama administration, represents a
    significant expansion for the so-called E-Verify system."

    (a) Dear Editor:
    I was unaware that someone had a finger bitten off at a health
    care debate. Therefore my letter stating that there had been no
    serious injuries at any town hall events stands corrected by
    Honza Prchal's letter (09/09/09 ID). However, his letter's call
    for tolerance and civility by both sides any debate does not
    square well with its reference to the "Democrat" party. To call
    the Democratic party the "Democrat" party has always been a term
    of opprobrium. This insult was first used during the McCarthy era
    in the 1950's, with the well-understood meaning that the
    Democratic party was pro-communist. or at least "soft on
    communism". It is still meant to disparage the Democratic party,
    though many people have forgotten the original meaning. Mr.
    Prchal's letters, which reflect more first hand knowledge of the
    evils of real communism than most of the rest of us have, should
    be the last to bandy about this kind of offensive term. Either
    this was just a typographical error in his letter, or his letters
    should try harder to practice the good-will and tolerance that
    they preach.
    K.W.E.

    **(a) Dear Editor:
    **Authority figures, and ID is one, if only socially, ought to
    **restrain themselves from branding their opponents un-American,
    **criminals, racists and the like without very convincing evidence
    **to back up their claims. K.W.E.'s letter (09/08/09 ID) is glad no
    **one has been seriously injured in health-care debates thus far.
    **Actually, some revved-up activist with Move. On bit a
    **septuagenarian's finger off recently at a health-care debate.
    **That's serious enough for me. Recent headlines indicate that
    **Democrat Party leaders have decided they haven't been aggressive
    **enough in their efforts to push health-care. I would hope that
    **their aggression is a little less aggressive than the rhetoric
    **that has brought us classics like "domestic terrorists", "evil-
    **mongers" and the like over domestic policy debates. I remember
    **the 1970s, and while the US was impressive enough for my family
    **to move here despite the over-heated language increasingly on
    **display in that decade, I do not remember the public tone very
    **fondly. I urge us all to avoid blanked denunciations of illegal
    **immigrants, people upset by illegal immigrants and the like. We
    **are a nation with 350 million or so people in it. One can expect
    **enough crack-pots in any debate to justify whatever stereotype
    **one wants to draw about whichever idea one wishes to draw it
    **about. That's fun, short-term, but loses in the long run.
    **Populist Republicans learned that in the late 1920s when the worm
    **turned and Democrats learned a similar lesson in the 1970s after

    1.* COMMENT
    Legislators Who Hit And Shoot People
    A new Southern Poverty Law Center report
    http://www.splcenter.org/news/item.jsp?aid=395
    details the shocking facts in Suffolk County, New York, where
    local law enforcement and local politicians are apparently trying
    to out-Hitler each other on the issue of immigration. The report
    says: "Fueling the fire are many of the very people who are
    charged with protecting the residents of Suffolk County - local
    politicians and law enforcement officials. At one point, one
    county legislator said that if he saw an influx of Latino day
    laborers in his town, "we'll be out with baseball bats." Another
    said that if Latino workers were to gather in a local
    neighborhood, "I would load my gun and start shooting, period.""
    When local politicians make threats of violence, it is high time
    for Congress to step in and address the immigration issue head
    on. It is Congress's duty to make immigration policy for the
    country. Once CIR is on the books as a statute, the Suffolk
    County terrorizers of immigrants will be shut up for good. Until
    then, the Congressional leadership (all Democrats at this time)
    is directly and deliberately responsible for permitting the
    situation to reach this deplorable state. Enough with the delays,
    already! Does any one still believe that health care and climate
    change are less controversial than immigration? We hope the
    appropriate Congressional committees will begin mark up on CIR
    soon.
    We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by
    writing to mailto:editor@ilw.com.

    (a) Dear Editor:
    From watching the trailer of "Sin Nombre" (09/03/09 ID comment),
    reading some reviews and watching a YouTube clip by the
    producer/director, Cary Fukunaga, I understand why the film won
    at Sundance. It has everything a film needs to tell a good story.
    There is a combination of fantasy, reality, cruetly, kindness,
    compassion, violence, intrigue, justice, injustice and a quest
    for a better life by young good looking people with whom the
    audience is sure to fall in love. Who can argue with a plot like
    that? In this film, there are those to love and those to hate,
    human emotion at its highest. One commenter on YouTube said, "I
    loved how this film raised awareness for? people like those
    portrayed in the film, whose struggle is often forgotten about...
    it was a really good movie too." Yes, it appears to be a
    "really good movie," but what message should Americans take away
    after seeing the film? Is it that since people have traveled a
    long and arduous journey seeking a "better life" in the US, they
    should be welcomed at the border and given Green Cards? I doubt
    that. There is injustice and oppression worldwide, the US
    included, everyone who reads the newspaper knows that. So what is
    the message in "Sin Nombre", other than that, ". ... it was a
    really good movie too."?* I see nothing more than great
    entertainment here, and perhaps a chance to thank my lucky stars
    that, like Bruce Springsteen, I was Born In The USA. But there is
    nothing in the film that contributes to the resolution of
    America's burgeoning immigration crisis and nothing that will
    guide the passage of the type of immigration legislation America
    needs.
    David D. Murray, Esq.**************** Newport Beach, CA
    (b) Dear Editor:
    Alan Greenspan, in his testimony before a Senate immigration
    committee chaired by Senator Charles Schumer, tried to justify
    the H-1B program by saying that wages of American professional
    workers (a "privileged elite") are too high and need to be
    lowered by exposure to more foreign competition. This argument is
    about as likely to convince immigration opponents to support
    increasing H-1B quotas as an argument that we need more "death
    panels" would be to convince seniors to support health care
    reform. With friends like Alan Greenspan, immigration supporters
    don't need any enemies. What is the real benefit of H-1B? It is
    that attracting skilled foreign workers helps American companies
    compete in the global marketplace and boosts our economy,
    creating more jobs and higher salaries for everyone. How could
    Senator Schumer, who is supposed to be taking the lead on
    immigration reform, have possibly picked someone like this for
    his start-off witness? Who will be his next "pro-immigrant"
    witness? Lou Dobbs? Tom Tancredo? Sheriff Joe Arpaio?
    V. L. Corazon
    (c) Dear Editor:
    Everyone, well almost everyone except the antis (what is the
    difference between the antis and the neonazis?), has been talking
    about enforcement only. Has anyone seen the makeup of the
    hierachy of ICE lately? God bless America.
