    6.  Headlines
    (a) Same-Gender Couples Fight For Immigration Rights
    But all three said their hands were forced by federal immigration
    laws that don't allow Americans to sponsor their foreign-born
    same-sex partners for citizenship as a man may do for his wife or
    a woman for her husband.
    (b) Holder Overturns Bush Immigration Order
    The elimination of the order could place a heavier burden on the
    immigration court system because appeal processes would take more
    time, Feere said.
    (c) Immigration Debate Heats Up, Yet Stays Peaceful
    "This has nothing to do with racism," he said. "This is strictly
    about legal vs. illegal immigrants."
    (d) Immigration Reformers Add 'Texting' to Toolbox
    While marches and rallies are long used strategies to call
    attention to political issues, cell phone text messaging has been

    (a) Dear Editor:
    The article "Gay Partner Language Could Doom Immigration Reform"
    (06/04/09 ID) exposes the fact that not all parties lobbying for
    CIR are truly "pro immigrant" or even "pro American".  For
    whatever reasons, the Catholic church and others would support a
    CIR bill which would benefit millions of illegals, but will have
    nothing to do with the same bill if it also benefits a small
    number of gay or lesbian US citizens.  There are only an
    estimated 36,000 binational same-sex couples compared with over
    12,000,000 illegals in the US.  The Uniting American Families Act
    (UAFA), which would recognize same-sex partners and spouses as
    being eligible for the same type of immigration benefits as
    opposite-sex spouses, should be one of the least controversial
    immigration reforms.  All of its beneficiaries would be US
    citizens or legal immigrants.   UAFA also benefits US citizens in
    other ways.  UAFA will allow US citizen parents to stay close to
    their adult sons and daughters who, too often, are now choosing
    to live outside the US so that they can be with their loved ones.
    UAFA also allows the US government to continue collecting income
    taxes from US citizens rather than having these income taxes paid
    to the government of the country in which US citizens are exiled.
    UAFA is not even particularly progressive legislation considering
    that it just brings the US into line with 19 countries that
    already have similar laws on the books, including all of the US
    strongest allies, countries as diverse as Canada, Spain, Israel,
    Brazil and South Africa.   UAFA should be seen as one of the most
    pro-American of immigration bills.  Unfortunately, it seems that
    many in the immigration battles are more anti-gay than they are
    pro-American.
    Ronald Matten, Esq.
    (b) Dear Editor:
    Christopher Basaman's letters' attempts (06/04/09 ID) to censor
    my letters for pointing out the Republican party's indisputable
    history of courting anti-Black and anti-Latino voters during the
    past forty years are laughable. However, I do not argue that his
    letters should not be published, merely because I disagree with
    them, Mr. Basaman's letters would do well to show the same
    tolerance for opposing viewpoints, instead of misrepresenting my
    letters' statements and complaining when they are published.
    Unless his letters can show convincingly that my letters'
    statements about the Republicans' long and still ongoing history
    of courting racist votes have no basis in fact, than his letters
    certainly owe an apology, not so much to me personally, but to
    everyone who cares about accuracy in the immigration debate.
    However, even Mr. Basaman's biased and distorted letters are
    models of reasoned discussion compared with the standard right
    wing rantings of Peter G.'s letter (06/04/09 ID), which wants to
    deport  millions of perfectly legal US citizens, whom it calls
    "anchor babies", the latest in a large and rapidly growing
    vocabulary of anti-Latino racial slurs to hit the dictionaries.
    Roger Algase, Esq.  New York, NY
    (c) Dear Editor:
    The lazy US born citizens welfare suckers are just plain lazy
    period. Good economy or bad economy they will be more happy to
    suck welfare instead of washing dishes, busing tables etc. like
    the "illegal" Chinese or Mexicans. Despite all the hardships and
    mean treatments in this country, many of them still manage to
    save money and send the remittance to their families back home,
    please don't tell me any excuses that native born Americans can't
    find decent jobs at all if not out of laziness, picky and take it
    for granted attitudes. Look at our streets to find any lazy bumps
    and ask them whether or not they're born here, I can bet you that
    mostly they're Americans. With all due respect to Ms. Cogill's
    letter (06/04/09 ID), yes foreigners take jobs from Americans,
    legal or illegal immigrants or jobs move to their countries
    instead, machines and computers take many manual jobs also from
    Americans and yes, other Americans are happy to take jobs from
    their fellow Americans, it's called competition.  Shall we make
    the automation of jobs illegal as well, so self service online
    reservation on our plane tickets, hotel rooms etc. are banned,
    many more Americans can work to assist us in doing these
    reservations again like the good old days ? But will anyone pay
    the extra fees to pay these live agents then or complaining again
    as usual ? Nothing should be illegal or unethical about
    competition. Ones are subject to bid and ask process in this life
    on Ebay, in hiring decision, shopping online or offline etc.
    That's the fact of life, don't like it ? That's too bad about it.
    Robert Yang
    (d) Dear Editor:
    I was watching CNN today and noted with some amusement the recent
    gallop poll of GOP members who seem not suprisingly to be 89%
    white. My family is mixed status in more than one way. Many of
    them are non-white hispanics and some are not yet citizens. So in
    the last year it became increasingly uncomfortable to be active
    in the GOP since it was rare to attend a meeting where someone
    didn't say something highly offensive regarding Hispanics or
    Latino's and most commentators were egged on despite being
    extremely ill informed on the specifics of Immigration Law and
    the reasons for the surge in economic migration. Painting
    Latino's with a broad brush or ignoring long standing family ties
    and relationships with newer migrant families and ignoring the
    contributions of the migrant workforce contributed to the failure
    of the GOP to keep a large Latino base that shared many of its
    values. Of the 22 hardliners on Immigration only 2 won elections
    in November. If you are not a part of the solution you are
    contributing to the problem. As I gazed out the window listening
    to this nonsense I noted the group had no problem looking out the
    country club window watching the dark skinned South American men
    cutting the lawn, or being served by them in the room we sat in.
    The "perception" that the base of the GOP is racist might be
    incorrect but the reality that I witnessed.  was myself and only
    one other member of our local party challenged any of the
    speakers who were spewing lies, hate speech and misinformation.

    http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/archives.shtm
    (a) Dear Editor:
    Debate via website is futile because it does not lend itself to
    fair discourse. However, I must react to Mr. Algase's recent
    letter (06/03/09 ID) requesting an apology for my letter to ID
    about his statement "As long as there are people around to rant
    and rave against all Latinos, including those who are legal
    immigrants or US citizens, the Republicans will always have a
    loyal, enthusiastic, base." First, ID amended the content of my
    letter to include the words "in my opinion" which I certainly did
    not write preceding the word "explicitly," as something explicit
    is not open to opinion. If ID is not going to publish letters
    verbatim, please do not publish them at all, as I do not need my
    carefully chosen words altered. Second, my letter was not
    directed to Mr. Algase, it was directed to ID to express my
    disappointment that it would publicize such a statement. Mr.
    Algase is entitled to his opinion, and people can agree,
    disagree, or lack interest. I happen to wholly lack interest in
    his opinion. My sole point is that I don't believe ID is the
    appropriate venue for unambiguous comments, or one-dimensional
    attempts at historical justification, for the proposition that
    the "base" of a major political party is racist. The semantics of
    whether Mr. Algase's letter means "all" by his letter's use of
    the word "base" is immaterial. His initial statement, and
    subsequent posting wherein he was kind enough to add that bigots
    feel "at home" in the Republican party, are his own words. My
    letter was in no way a distortion. It was a restatement and a
    reasonable response based on his use of the word "base." There
    are certainly venues for such comments, I simply don't believe
    this is it. An apology is neither warranted nor forthcoming.
    Christopher W. Basaman, Esq.
    (b) Dear Editor:
    Robert Yang's reply (06/03/09 ID) to Michael Steinberg's letter
    (06/02/09 ID) captures the essence of freedom as guaranteed by
    the US Constitution, as well as highlighting the need for
    controlled and regulated immigration policies. While those
    policies undeniably need reform to conform to 21 century
    realities, they are pretty much in place right now as Mr. Yang's
    letter describes them. His letter recognizes that we cannot
    merely throw open our borders, but must regulate and control
    influx, allowing entry only to those whose presence will benefit
    American society. Apparently, although if he pays his fair share,
    he will be granted entry and accommodation, it appears Mr.
    Steinberg will be served no Kosher meals in Mr. Yang's house. He
    may instead get Longshin tea and a healthy noodle soup, with a
    little shia xau and shau mei on special occasions to make up for
    the lack of matzo balls. I'm sure that even in Mr. Yang's house,
    although not Kosher, eating pork would be optional, rather than
    mandatory. It just shows that there is a cost to everything and
    that while cultural and religious heritage and custom is
    wonderful, if a person wants to cling tightly to them in a new
    house, where things are different, perhaps he should have stayed
    home. With rights come responsibilities and I believe Mr. Yang's
    letter recognizes this. But I wonder at the statement, "...
    freedom of movement for survivals and better opportunities should
    be the very basic right of universal human rights." I don't
    believe unfettered free migration is good for America at this
    point in history. Perhaps a hundred and fifty years ago it was,
    but today, as an overpopulated magnet for Emma Lazarus' "The New
    Colossus," America needs restraints on free access simply because
    the economy will not support it.
    David D. Murray, Esq.
    (c) Dear Editor:
    I read ID because I get a kick out of reading letters to the
    Editor. Responding to Roger Algase's recent letter (06/02/09 ID),
    the democrats were the racist party before the Civil War to the
    1960's. If the leftist brand of reform does happen, what will be
    done about the next wave of illegals? The 1986 amnesty
    accelerated the current problem. There are attorneys who feed on
    this problem for their profit.  I too will go for the leftist
    brand if our government will: (1) withdraw citizenship for anchor
    babies born to all non-citizens. (2) stop illegal entrants and
    their offspring from ever getting citizenship (3) lower
    immigration quotas for countries sending illegal aliens (4) raise
    collateral and education requirements for entry (5) create a work
    permit for temporary foreign workers (6) cause employers to
    register and warrant their workers (7) eliminate all aid above
    emergency medical care (8) enforce all immigration laws (and
    expirations) and penalize employers (9) encourage private
    investment to build quality prisons in their country with a
    priority to house their own deported citizens. This revenue will
    help the local ecomomy and also give their relatives a better
    chance to visit. Citizens of genuine good will are now getting
    persecuted for their conservative philosophy.
    Peter G.  Southern California
    (d) Dear Editor:
    Mr. Murray's letter (06/02/09 ID) shows the very flawed concept
    of the laws of "the land", any communities or countries can make
    whatever laws they want or change any existing laws, but it
    doesn't mean those laws make sense, free from discrimination or
    meet universal justice standard. Will ones accept laws that
    discriminate their rights and freedom because they belong to the
    minority groups or because of their gender or sexual orientation?
    Will anyone support Sharia or any religious laws that support
    discrimination and persecution on those who don't believe in the
    mainstream faiths ? I don't think so. The majority voters in CA
    voted against same gender marriage but it doesn't mean that the
    majority has the rights to discriminate and persecute the
    minority rights. Mr. Steinberg's letter was indeed funny
    (06/02/09 ID) but not the funniest. A true Christian and Jewish
    should and can never be a xenophobe, because he must understand
    how the life was living as refugees, "illegal or legal"
    immigrants, strangers in diaspora and enduring so much
    persecution living in other lands. Hypocrisy indeed creates funny
    statements and letters. Complaining about OPEC monopoly but
    supporting protectionist trade and immigration laws to establish
    monopolies here at home, applauding and supporting East Germans
    "illegally" immigrated and jumped the Berlin wall to better
    opportunities and freedom to the West. The new worlds were
    actually established by illegal immigrants coming as colonists
    from Europe in North and South America, Australia and New Zealand
    and how quickly ones forget this shameful history and have a
    nerve to accuse others as illegal human beings just because
    they're trying to survive and trade their labor, goods and
    services for better wages in another lands?
    Robert Yang
    (e) Dear Editor:
    Robert Yang's letter (06/03/09 ID) fails to recognize the huge
    social costs of legalizaing over 12 million, largely of Latin
    America's underclass. People deficient in education, who over
    burden our legal system, hospitals, schools, and then seek up to
    par medical care and housing, who make mostly modest incomes, and
    may enjoy large families, are not hesitant in shifting the burden
    to the population at large.
    Michael Steinberg
    (f) Dear Editor:
    I'm responding to Mr Yang's letter (ID 06/02/09 ID), while I am
    usually not in agreement with Mr Yang's letter's views on
    immigration, this letter was well stated.  If an immigrant can
    benefit all in the USA, pay their way, don't expect any welfare,
    and live by the rules of the land, immigration should be allowed.
    Unfortunately, Mr Yang's letter seems to ignore the fact the the
    majority of illegal immigrants who feel they have "rights" don't
    truly benefit anyone in the USA, often end up on welfare, try to
    impose their ways on the US (when last have you picked up a phone
    without having to listen to a translation in spanish), and yes,
    they do take jobs from American citizens.  Be honest, if the
    government dished out less "welfare" to any and everyone as they
    do, those same lazy welfare recipients, when they get hungry,
    will gladly do the jobs many illegal immigrants now supposedly
    help us out by doing.

    http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/archives.shtm
    (a) Dear Editor:
    Re: Immigration benefits on the Hill (05/25/09 ID comment). Two
    quick observations.  First, a delay may not be a bad thing.  It
    would give the economy a chance to pick up and unemployment a
    chance to go down.  My other observation is that it would be a
    mistake to take Democratic members for granted.   I doubt that
    any of them have districts that are 100% behind immigration reform.
    Nolan Rappaport, Esq.
    (b) Dear Editor:
    A CIS examiner recently refused to approve a green card for my
    client because the sponsor was a Puerto Rican and could not
    produce a green card.  The beneficiary tried to explain that his
    non-English speaking wife/sponsor was a U.S. citizen.  The
    examiner yelled at him to "shut up."  My complaint up the line
    got the case transferred to another examiner but the first
    examiner is still employed.  At the second interview - which I
    attended - I asked the examiner if she knew why we were having a
    second interview.  She did not.  I told her of her cohort's
    ignorance and she immediately approved the green card.  I wonder
    what exam the CIS employees must pass to get the job.
    Paul Good, Esq.
    (c) Dear Editor:
    Letter writer Roger Algase, Esq. closes his post with "As long as
    there are people around to rant and rave against all Latinos,
    including those who are legal immigrants or US citizens, the
    Republicans will always have a loyal, enthusiastic, base."
    (05/29/09 ID). The ludicrousness of the letter is not really my
    concern. I am confused, however, why ID found it appropriate to
    publish a letter which in my opinion explicitly refers to all
    members of a political party as racist. If someone wrote that all
    Democrats were pedophiles, would ID have been as prone to publish
    the letter?
    Christopher W. Basaman, Esq.
    (d) Dear Editor:
    I am heartened by Mr. Yang's letter's (06/01/09 ID) loving and
    embracing spirit, and recognition of the inherent selfishness of
    borders and the use of laws to foster petty self interests. I
    therefore request the pleasure of my removal to his house for an
    indefinite period, with due respect for my particular culture. I
    would like to be served kosher, non-gluten, low sodium food.
    Michael Steinberg
    (e) Dear Editor:
    Not all white Americans support Grand really Old Party.
    Republican is losing votes because it alienates many voters by
    its own inconsistency and hypocrisy. How comes they can cut taxes
    while keep the level of spending and engaging in expensive and
    unwarranted wars creating huge deficit? How comes a party that
    believes in strict interpretation of our laws and Constitution
    but ignore the part of separation of church and state by catering
    more to religious extremists with their hypocritical holier than
    thou political agendas? A party believes that welfare and
    universal health care for the poor and lazy are wrong but big
    pies for their wealthy corporate cronies is fine and health care
    and pharmaceutical industries should be allowed to make obscene
    profits on us at will? A party that believes that same sex
    marriage should be banned and illegal but not divorces who mess
    up many children life and break the "sanctity of marriage" even
    more. A party believes in free market and capitalism and yet they
    must please their whining constituents who believe in
    protectionism, nativism and xenophobia, that illegal immigration
    must stop but let the companies outsource jobs to India instead ?
    We don't want hypocrite neo cons nor ignorant liberals to run the
    nation. We must have a party of common sense that uphold equal
    rights principles for all Americans and even to all human beings
    in general. The biggest blunder for liberals, some Democrats,
    Judge Sotomayor and President Obama administration is that they
    must stop supporting reverse racism and affirmative action
    policies for the minorities. It's wrong, unfair and absurd and
    even insult to all minorities including myself that we can't earn
    something by our own merits without being given special favor.
    Everyone must pass the very same entrance test regardless of skin
    color and race. Period.        
    Robert Yang
    (f) Dear Editor:
    Must be difficult, to break all ties, to separate the truth from
    the lies, Of your comforting cradle of birth, Toward a far land,
    set forth. Must be difficult, to unlearn, Everything you once
    knew, The new speedily in your mind burn, A different thinking
    accept as true. Must be difficult, to get used, To faces white
    and black, To wish self-protective skills fused, Master the alien
    with an easy knack. Must be difficult, more than the ways, To
    tragically leave behind, The feel of rainy tropical days,
    Neighbors and friends kind. Must be difficult, to restart, From
    the bottom of the ladder, With your strange foreign ways part,
    Keep the homesickness from making you sadder. But, yet you do it,
    With great joy and pain, To keep the internal fire you once lit,
    And pursue happiness, not in vain
    R. Saheb

    (a) Dear Editor:
    The consular officer's description of quizzing visa applicants so
    that he can catch them in any falsehood and deny entry or reveal
    a misunderstanding in filling out their forms and allow them in
    from the 27th and the May 29th story of the man without
    fingerprints reminds me of the difficulty my wife had when her
    work with caustic chemicals at her job (making medicines) and at
    home (the woman hates stains in laundry) deprived her of
    fingerprints. The INS agent (it was some time ago) was visibly
    calmer after my wife answered two or three of his questions.
    I'll bet that famously reserved Singaporeans might have a little
    difficulty discussing such personal issues as hand foot peeling
    that the story's Mr. S suffered from and likewise that the old-
    fashioned hierarchical relationship with physicians more common
    to East Asia than to patients in the United States made it
    difficult for Mr. S to explain exactly why his fingerprints were
    missing. That said, he was allowed in. All's well that ends well,
    and he seems to be in remission so it ended even better than his
    mere admission for a visit to the United States.
    Honza Prchal, Esq.
    (b) Dear Editor:
    Anna Stacy's letter (05/29/09 ID) begins with a familiar rant
    against "illegals", whom she wants to see deported, but then goes
    on to attack President Obama's nomination to Judge Sonia
    Sotomayor to the Supreme Court as an example of someone who would
    "trade his country" for Latino votes. Judge Sotomayor is an
    American, born in New York to Puerto Rican parents. Puerto
    Ricans, who are clearly Latinos, are US citizens by birth. This
    letter is only one of countless examples of people using the term
    "'illegal" when they mean Latino. Yes, there are still a few
    lawyers and other intellectuals out there who persist in
    following the quaint, old-fashioned use of the word "illegal'' to
    define people who have violated the immigration laws, rather than
    as a racial code word. I respect them for their brave, but
    doomed, attempt to preserve the purity of the English language.
    Unfortunately, many more Americans are more concerned with
    preserving  their bigoted idea of the "purity" of the white race
    from the "'invasion"  of Latinos, including those who, like Judge
    Sotomayor, had the nerve to make arrangements to be born in this
    country to Spanish-speaking American parents. Not so long ago, in
    the 1960's and 1970's, Puerto Ricans, even though they are
    American citizens, were about as popular among whites here in New
    York City as illegal Mexicans are today in California, Texas or
    Arizona. The musical "West Side Story"' was not exactly about two
    different groups of American citizens inspired by brotherly love
    and mutual respect for each other. Ms. Stacy's letter should also
    be reassuring to the Republican party. As long as there are
    people around to rant and rave against all Latinos, including
    those who are legal immigrants or US citizens, the Republicans
    will always have a loyal, enthusiastic, base.
    Roger Algase, Esq.                 New York, NY
    (c) Dear Editor:
    How to make something legal becomes illegal or legal becomes
    illegal? Change the laws, easy. More states amended their laws to
    allow gay marriage and many more will follow suit as many
    understand the principle of equal rights for all and separation
    of church and state, it's none of our business to take away the
    rights of gays to make vow and legal lifetime loving commitments
    to their partners to accomodate narrow minded and extreme views
    of some religious fundamentalists. It's completely wrong and
    hypocrite to make laws based on flawed and biased religious views
    which as usual cherry pick verses of their "Holy Book" of
    convenient when viewing on several issues. Why not making sex
    before marriage and divorces as illegal as well? Sins are sins
    and we can't cherry pick laws to justify our intolerance and
    hatred toward those who don't share the same belief as ours. Same
    thing with our and other nations on earth immigration laws should
    be amended that foreigners or not should be free to move here and
    there as they wish as long as they are self sufficient, of good
    moral characters, sane, healthy and have no criminal records
    anywhere and ones should be free to trade their labor, products
    and services to any willing buyers without governments and
    special interests trying to single them out to discourage
    competition. Nations should barter or trade in neutral currency
    back by commodities or gold and silver not by paper fiat
    currency. I am not a globalist by promoting open border and free
    trade for all, because open border existed centuries ago, it's
    the selfish fews that made laws to justify their greed and
    selfish interests for their own profits, benefits and convenient
    by discriminating others to pursue liberty, prosperity and
    happiness on this planet.

    http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/archives.shtm
    (a) Dear Editor:
    Regarding ID Comment (05/28/09 ID): Looking at Judge Sonia
    Sotomayor's nomination as either a down payment on President
    Obama's promise to move Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR),
    supposedly to be dealt with at his June 8 immigration conference,
    or a bone thrown to Latinos for a failure to push CIR, may be
    reading too much into strictly Supreme Court politics. The
    opposition to CIR, which would lead to granting basic rights to a
    Latino and Asian underclass that is now the target of venomous
    hatred and contempt among millions of voters in both parties, is
    based on a deep, entrenched racism fueled by fears that whites
    will lose their majority status and all that comes with it, not
    just in a handful of Western states, but throughout America. This
    is something that was astutely pointed out by the late Professor
    Samuel Huntington (a bitter opponent of Latino immigration) in
    his 2002 book "Who Are We?". Granting legal status to 12 million
    or more illegal  immigrants (or perhaps more accurately just
    human beings?) is a huge undertaking politically. It would be
    equivalent to abolishing racial segregation in the 1950's and
    1960's. John F.Kennedy, for example was clearly personally
    against segregation, but he was unwilling to touch it, leaving
    that task to his successor, Lyndon Johnson. In this regard, I am
    afraid that President Obama, who is too timid even to close
    Guantanamo now or to prosecute torturers, will turn out to show
    more of this particular side of the "spirit of Camelot" than the
    bold vision of LBJ. Here is one prediction that President Obama
    will renege on his CIR promise and leave the entire legalization
    issue to a more courageous successor. His grand June 8
    immigration conference will probably be about as productive as
    the next UN meeting on North Korea.
    Roger Algase, Esq.                 New York, NY
    (b) Dear Editor:
    Regarding David Murray's letter (05/28/09 ID): I agree Haiti is
    short of resources but I would rather send $100 million to our
    close neighbor than send that amount to Lebanon.  Haiti has
    contributed much to the US over the centuries without costing us
    very much.  Years ago my wife and I decided to have a French
    language wedding in Port-au-Prince. What fun that was!
    Paul Good, Esq.
    (c) Dear Editor:
    This letter is in response to Mr. Andrade's letter of (05/28/09
    ID).  The letter claims that "I didn't hear anyone say they were
    insulted" about the CSC's refusal to provide decent responses to
    fair questions posed in the written Q&A and by members of the
    audience.  There were several tense exchanges between the
    'stakeholder' community and CSC officials during the course of
    the meeting and afterwards.  Furthermore, my in-box has been full
    over the last week from attendees thanking me for conveying the
    essence of the meeting with crystal-like clarity.  Maybe we all
    imagined this tension in exactly the same way?  I doubt it
    somehow.  Whether Mr. Andrade's letter acknowledges it or not,
    there is real anger among the stakeholder community regarding the
    overall arrogant, unresponsive approach of the CSC in tandem with
    radically shifting adjudications patterns that defy explanation
    (which, of course, CSC refuses to explain, let alone admit is
    occurring).  If the letter wants to serve as a water carrier for
    the CSC, then that's its burden to bear.  Otherwise, if the
    letter is happy with the way CSC conducts its business, it must
    be based on low expectations in life and easy to please.
    Brandon Meyer               Solana Beach, CA
    (d) Dear Editor:
    When is this country going to realize that there are Americans
    here who do vote and do not want illegals or any form of amnesty
    for the illegals in this country. I am tired of politicians using
    thier power to get votes from Latino's.  The last I heard the
    American vote was larger than Latino.  I hope every American
    votes against these people who would trade thier country for a
    Latino vote.  It looks like Obama is trying by his new nomination
    for Judge.  Somewhere along the line I think all these
    politicians will lose their seats in Congress but giving in to
    illegals and they appear to have no guts or backbones when it
    comes to Latinos.  I really think if the Republicans would stand
    up and fight for Americans and their rights and not Latino's or
    illegals they can win back their party.  They certainly would
    have my vote and all my famiy and friends.  We do not want
    amnesty of any kind and want to see all illegals departed and
    sooner the better.
    Anna Stacy
    (e) Dear Editor:
    Mr. Murray's letter (05/28/09 ID) failed to notice on my letter
    trying to emphasize on hypocrisy and double standard nature on
    our foreign relation and immigration policies. Haitian and Cuban
    refugees don't speak English, but that's not my point. My point
    is that we have political asylum and refugee legal process that
    should apply equally to any refugees regardless country of origin
    and they must apply on their own merits and personal cases. If we
    can have cozy relationships with any other dictator regimes on
    Earth why we must single out Cuba because of the objection of
    small Cuban Americans minority while many more Americans prefer
    to have common sense and better relationship with Cuba. We can't
    do much to fix problems around the world nor to accommodate
    billions to come to our country, it doesn't mean that we don't
    care. Billions of the populationin this planet live under $2 a
    day, why ? Because they must become our "slaves" and be happy to
    accept our fiat currency that we print at will and to finance our
    beyond our means lifestyles using IOUs. Chinese will sometime get
    tired buying Treasury Bonds and many nations in fact are trading
    in Chinese Yuan or using barter system as early sign that they
    have lack of faith and appetite on our currency which sits on
    growing mountain of deficit and debt. The due time is near when
    many people living and working in the "third world" demanding
    justice on their hard honest labor. If we don't invest in our
    education system, build strong families with good values and work
    ethics and still take things for granted soon or later we will
    regret it when time is due to pay back and realize that we count
    our blessings in IOUs not real wealth.
    Robert Yang
    (f) Dear Editor:
    Since ID knows all that is brewing on the hill.  Do you know
    anything of talk about revising or bringing back the 245i?
    American citizen legitimately married to an illegal alien can
    change their status?
    Susan
    (g) Dear Editor:
    President Obama should get this immigration bill pass this year.
    It will benefit both the illegals as well as the american
    economy.
