    Readers can share comments, email: mailto:editor@ilw.com  (up to
    300-words). Past correspondence is available in our archives
    http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/archives.shtm
    (a) Dear Editor:
    I would like to join in David D. Murray's letter's tribute to ID
    (05/05/09 ID comment) on its 10th anniversary. ID is unique not
    only as a provider of timely and important information, but as a
    vehicle for expression of opinion across the full spectrum,
    including not only from immigration advocates, but from those who
    are fundamentally opposed to immigration. It could even be said
    that one of the greatest things about America's diversity is that
    some of the people who want to slam the doors shut hardest
    against our newest immigrants come from immigrant backgrounds
    themselves. It is remarkable how easy it is for some successful
    immigrants, or their descendants, to lose any sense of compassion
    for those who are less fortunate. Ms. Sung's letter strikes a
    particularly discordant and offensive note in the light of the
    tragic case reported in the New York Times on May 4 ("Mentally
    Ill and in Immigration Limbo") of a woman from Mainland China who
    came to the US to escape that country's forced abortion policy
    only to be caught in the ever widening I.C.E. immigration net and
    locked up. This woman, Xiu Ping Jang, has now become mentally ill
    and suicidal, has lost her child to foster care and can no longer
    communicate with either her family or her attorney. Yet, as she
    languishes in jail, she is treated like a common criminal in
    court by unsympathetic, if not openly sadistic, immigration
    judges. I suggest that anyone tempted to make jokes at the
    expense of immigrants trying to escape persecution or poverty in
    their own countries should read this article first.
    Roger Algase, Esq.  New York, NY
    (b) Dear Editor:
    Perhaps Chia-Li Sung's letter (05/05/09 ID) is attempting to be
    sarcastically witty, but in fact falls flat on its face,
    exhibiting a lack of compassion and lack of understanding of the
    entire legal system, including immigration. What "lawyers out
    there" know, and what many elitist, privileged, whiners do not
    understand, is that under the law illegal aliens are not
    criminals and have no relation to "inmates in all the prisons".
    Yes, illegals have broken the law, akin to speeding or littering.
    In fact, I wonder if being illegal is more serious than cheating
    on one's income tax, not reporting cash income from the likes of
    giving music lessons in one's home? There are penalties for
    breaking immigration laws, and in some instances there are
    exceptions on humanitarian grounds: political assylum, hardship
    waiver, trafficing victims, abused spouses and the proposed
    "Dream Act," that seeks to remedy the harsh enforcement of law on
    children who have unwittingly become victims of their own
    circumstance. Yes, immigration lawyers know it is against the law
    to enter this country illegally. We are also painfully aware of
    the hardship wrought upon innocents, such as children who enter
    the US with their parents, are raised here as Americans, become
    educated and go on to college, only to discover later that they
    are not legal and cannot obtain the benefits of a legal resident,
    including adjustment of status through a US citizen spouse with
    whom they fall in love. Silly analogies of freeing all the
    inmates in the criminal justice system serves no purpose in the
    immigration debate, but only shows ignorance and arrogance, a
    combination regretful in a democracy based on the pursuit of
    freedom, liberty and justice, especially in a nation that puports
    to be based Christian principles.
    David D. Murray, Esq. Newport Beach, CA
    (c) Dear Editor:
    Comparing heinous hardcore criminal inmates to illegal immigrants
    is completely unfair, absurd and misguided. In this and many
    other countries there are laws that are unjust, bad and
    ridiculous, that put certain groups of persons less equal than
    others just because of their races, skin colors, genders, creeds,
    sexual orientation etc, and breaking these unfair and inhuman
    laws can't and should never be compared to heinous crimes such as
    murder, kidnapping etc. When a black African American defied the
    segregation laws by sitting on the white only section on a public
    bus, when a Chinese immigrant questioned and challenged the
    reasoning and justice behind Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, when
    a non Muslim protests his religious freedom and equal rights in
    his apartheid Islamic theocracy country, and when a foreigner and
    a human being questions why he must have "an authorization aka
    legal status"outside his native country to work to a willing
    employer just because restrictive laws of the land that favor and
    protect its whining "native" citizens from open competition, then
    we must view it as a struggle against human rights violation and
    universal justice. Apartheid laws should have no place in the
    21st. century. Freedom of movement and freedom to trade of all
    human beings should be protected and guaranteed as parts of
    universal human rights.
    Robert Yang
    (d) Dear Editor:
    Re: Krishnamurthy's comments (05/05/09 ID) to my previous letter.
    To clarify, my letter was written in the context of "immigration
    reform proposals being shopped around." The last several attempts
    at legalization bills have completely left out the
    deported/deportable spouses of USC. Immigration law is
    extraordinarily complicated and many of these kids who were
    brought here as babies don't even know their own status. In the
    course of normal social interaction that they meet and fall in
    love with US Citizens who shouldn't have to pay for some
    Legislators bizzare idea of "justice" effective exile for the
    citizen to continue the relationship. Illegal presence is a civil
    violation similar to a traffic ticket, so to turn the life of a
    US Citizen married to a person in these circumstances into a
    total living hell for 3, 10 years or even permanently seems
    draconian at best. Perhaps I do have a dim view of the ease of
    VISA's for cyber-relationships, and what appears to me to have
    become the common practice of "importing a bride/groom". As for
    couples who meet overseas for whatever reason its a bit different
    in my opinon than surfing for a mate, particularly in those
    countries where the foreign potential love interest needs an
    interpreter to negotiate the relationship. I don't think a
    courtship made possible by immigration violation is superior
    morally to posting yourself on line for a wedding proposal. I do
    think the former is more consequential to the circumstances of
    living and working in the US than the determined effort to seek
    only a US spouse. On my comments on "purely illegal" folks I
    refer to the past several Immigration bills which attempted to
    give benefits to folks who had no US Citizen connection but did
    not contain a waiver for those spouses of USC.
    Sergi Sheplov
    (e) Dear Editor:
    We all know, especially illegal aliens, that in order to work in
    the USA we need fake documents because we cannot get the
    appropriate legal documentation (see 05/05/09 ID comment). We
    know that  Social Security Cards are stolen or fake. And if we do
    it we do it knowingly. Bad judge and awful judgement. He needs to
    get another job. This ruling makes us all commit wrong doings and
    crime more willingly. And the thieves whose business is to
    provide stolen identity get lots of money in this sort of black-
    theft market. Outrageous.

    Supremes Rule On Identity Theft Case
    The Los Angeles Times reports "The Supreme Court today took away
    one tool for prosecuting and deporting workers who are in this
    country illegally, ruling that the crime of identity theft is
    limited to those who knew they had stolen another person's Social
    Security number." For the full story, see here.

    (a) Dear Editor:
    I would like to be the first of its readers to congratulate
    Immigration Daily on its 10th year in continuous daily
    publication (see 05//04/09 ID comment). Over the years, ID has
    provided its readers with accurate information, great seminars,
    an avenue for legal advertising and a forum for the free
    expression of differing opinions on immigration matters. Along
    with me, I hope other readers appreciate the tremendous amount of
    work and effort it takes to put out a daily publication of the
    quality of ID, while maintaining a professional balance in
    presentation. You've come a long way, ID. I look forward to many
    more years of your publication and devoted service to the
    immigration community.
    David D. Murray, Esq. Newport Beach, CA
    (b) Dear Editor:
    How about we have a March for all the inmates in all the prisons
    and demand the congress to change all the laws so that these
    "poor babies" could all be freed and go home to their loved ones
    and start to work and provide for their families. all of you
    immigration lawyers out there, you know better than anyone if
    it's against the immigration laws to enter this country
    illegally.
    Chia-Li Sung
    (c) Dear Editor:
    This is with reference to Mr Sheplov's letter (5/1/09 ID). I must
    say, it took me a while to sort through all of his letter's
    contentions. If I read it correctly, his letter implies that an
    alien present illegally in the US, by virtue of having entered
    into matrimony with a US citizen, should be absolved of prior
    immigration infractions. I don't particularly have a problem with
    that. After all this is in the context of making compliance with
    immigration law a negotiable matter. Besides, the overriding
    concern here, justifiably, is to make life easier for the US
    citizen in question. Mr Sheplov's letter goes on to suggest
    though, tangentially in my opinion, one or both of the following.
    1. a marriage based on courtship outside the US or in cyberspace
    is somehow more objectionable, legally, than a marriage based on
    courtship on US soil made possible by violating US immigration
    law. 2. a marriage between two aliens is somehow more
    objectionable, legally, than a marriage where one of the persons
    is a US citizen... period. I can't say which, but I have a
    problem with either.

    through the study of charts, metrics and data, but also from
    psychological factors that move people to invest, build, lend,
    buy and sell."

    would attend the Orlando demonstration, but these events have
    shrunk in size since the large immigration marches of three years
    ago -- when attendance estimates ranged from 20,000 to 50,000
    people in Orlando and millions in some of the country's largest
    cities. "

    (a) Dear Editor:
    I have been in the international recruitment and immigration
    arena since 1997.  Immigrants if recruited correctly with proper
    screening procedures that is suitable for the International
    movement of skilled and professional people to fill skills gaps
    have a lot to contribute.  Most of the issues about taking
    American jobs are taking things to the extreme for professionals
    in silicon valley, a good American candidate will not be turned
    down for an H-1B applicant as it doesn't make sense to do so.  1.
    There is no guarantee they will get the visa  2. Its expensive to
    do  3. It takes time   Now, with H-2B we have a different
    situation which we have witnessed first hand, problems are
    aplenty due to very poor quality applicants being pushed so that
    some agents can make a quick buck. However, if done properly and
    by the right recruiters for skilled jobs like welders, fitters
    and many other blue collar skills that are hard to find in USA
    even during a recession, then this is a blessing to the
    employers.  In the US, and this is not a criticism, its an
    observation, but there seems to be very little awareness that
    there is a worldwide competition for the very best migrant
    workers.   Canada for example needed masses of skilled workers
    from Nurses to skilled welders and pipe fitters and they were
    succeeding in bringing in from a very limited international pool,
    along with Australia the Canadians have recognized the need for
    migrant workers and what they can offer to the economy.   Perhaps
    this such an issue for America as the market tends to go for the
    Mexican workers anyway, but the Australians, Canadians and
    British are cherry picking the very best from Philippines, India
    and other countries and they are taking all the fluent English
    speaking skilled tradesmen.
    Tony Hayes
    (b) Dear Editor:
    Regarding Kaushik's letter's (4/30/09 ID) lament yesterday on the
    3 year foreign BS vs the US   4 year being an impediment to legal
    immigration.      Personally I am hoping that the US Citizens
    with deportable or deported   foreign spouses will be in line
    ahead of any "purely" legal or illegal aliens  in terms of
    "immigration relief".  While I think its just dandy to recruit
    foreign talent, I think the rights of these US Citizens who chose
    like other  US Citizens to marry whom they love, should be free
    to live in the US with  thier husband or wife instead of exiled
    to a foreign country because they  did not follow "proper
    protocol" according to USCIS.      It will never cease to baffle
    me that people who meet here in the US in a  very traditional way
    often meet insurmountable obstacles to living happily ever after
    yet those surfing the net for love can import a total stranger to
    fufill thier love  desires in a few short months.

    1.  COMMENT
    Immigration Stimulus
    A Wall Street Journal
    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124078847516857485.html
    opinion piece points out that an infusion of innovators is even
    more needed in a recession. "Companies founded by immigrants
    include Yahoo, eBay and Google. Half of Silicon Valley start-ups
    were founded by immigrants, up from 25% a decade ago. Some 40% of
    patents in the U.S. are awarded to immigrants. A recent study by
    the Kauffman Foundation found that immigrants are 50% likelier to
    start businesses than natives. Immigrant-founded technology firms
    employ 450,000 workers in the US."
    We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by
    writing to mailto:editor@ilw.com.
