    8.  LETTERS
    Readers are welcome to share their comments, email:
    mailto:editor@ilw.com  (300-words or fewer preferred).
    Many letters to the Editor refer to past correspondence,
    available in our archives.
    http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/archives.shtm
    (a) Dear Editor:
    Well, RLM's letter has told us off (02/10/09 ID). Her letter
    states "very happy that I do not have to go back again to this
    terrible country that US had became."  It appears that even for
    "very well qualified, very well-balanced psichologically (sic)"
    persons, the US is just not the place for everyone. What amazes
    me about the immigration controversy is the animosity sometimes
    exhibited by persons who, for one reason or another, do not
    achieve their US immigration goals fast enough, or at all. Yes,
    our immigration system is broken; the US is not perfect - no
    country is perfect. But that is a problem for Americans to fix,
    not foreigners. Like every other country, America has the
    sovereign right to control its borders and to determine who
    enters and who stays. Today, America graciously accepts persons
    of all races, ethnicities and religions, without governmental
    discrimination, and is undeniably the most companionate country
    in the world. Anyone who disagrees is welcome to provide another
    example. With the privilege of residing in any country comes
    responsibilities. Many come to the US seeking personal gain, but
    are never asked to devote time or effort toward contributing back
    to the country as a whole through public service. We no longer
    have the "draft," conscription into military service. But should
    this eliminate the requirement of duty to public service? Perhaps
    a year of service to the nation should be mandatory for US
    citizens and to foreigners seeking admission to the US - not
    military service, but service for the public good. It is sad that
    many foreigners come to our borders, demanding entrance, and when
    rejected for immigration reasons, criticize and belittle our
    great nation, without ever understanding what America is, or what
    being an American is really all about. That is regrettable.
    David D. Murray, Esq.  Newport Beach, CA
    (b) Dear Editor:
    Notation is made of the gracious manner in which R. Algase's
    letter (02/09/09 ID) accepted responsibility for the mistake that
    the term "illegal alien" was not to be found in our entry laws.
    But the letter may exaggerate regarding use of the term,
    "ingenious". My letter's argument (02/06/09 ID) was based upon
    the observation of Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the
    Constitution: "No person except a natural born Citizen, or a
    Citizen of the U.S., at the time of the Adoption of this
    Constitution shall be eligible to the Office of President".  No
    "genious" is needed to see that a clear distinction is made
    between the two terms and that if they are not considered the
    same today, it can only be by a wrong interpretation of Wong Kim
    Ark and ignoring the proper meaning of: "subject to the
    jurisdiction thereof" limitation of the 14th Amd. regarding
    birthright citizenship. Further, this distorted view ignores that
    our Constitution was for the express benefit of: "ourselves and
    our Posterity" (US citizens) as so stated in the Preamble, not
    for any or all non-citizens of the world who could sneak in and
    have a child. The proper reaction to such would be to restore the
    original intent and there is presently legislation to do. This is
    exactly the kind of "immigration reform" that is needed, not CIR
    shamnesty. M. Freeman's (02/09/09) letter also suffers from
    severe myopia with an abundance of compassion for foreigners and
    none for US citizens or sovereignty. Those who can't muster a
    moral allegiance to US should be honest and move to the county
    where their sentiments lie to improve life there, not dilute and
    destroy ours as is being done in CA and elsewhere.

    8.  LETTERS
    Readers are welcome to share their comments, email:
    mailto:editor@ilw.com  (300-words or fewer preferred).
    Many letters to the Editor refer to past correspondence,
    available in our archives.
    http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/archives.shtm
    (a) Dear Editor:
    Well, RLM's letter has told us off (02/10/09 ID). Her letter
    states "very happy that I do not have to go back again to this
    terrible country that US had became."  It appears that even for
    "very well qualified, very well-balanced psichologically (sic)"
    persons, the US is just not the place for everyone. What amazes
    me about the immigration controversy is the animosity sometimes
    exhibited by persons who, for one reason or another, do not
    achieve their US immigration goals fast enough, or at all. Yes,
    our immigration system is broken; the US is not perfect - no
    country is perfect. But that is a problem for Americans to fix,
    not foreigners. Like every other country, America has the
    sovereign right to control its borders and to determine who
    enters and who stays. Today, America graciously accepts persons
    of all races, ethnicities and religions, without governmental
    discrimination, and is undeniably the most companionate country
    in the world. Anyone who disagrees is welcome to provide another
    example. With the privilege of residing in any country comes
    responsibilities. Many come to the US seeking personal gain, but
    are never asked to devote time or effort toward contributing back
    to the country as a whole through public service. We no longer
    have the "draft," conscription into military service. But should
    this eliminate the requirement of duty to public service? Perhaps
    a year of service to the nation should be mandatory for US
    citizens and to foreigners seeking admission to the US - not
    military service, but service for the public good. It is sad that
    many foreigners come to our borders, demanding entrance, and when
    rejected for immigration reasons, criticize and belittle our
    great nation, without ever understanding what America is, or what
    being an American is really all about. That is regrettable.
    David D. Murray, Esq.  Newport Beach, CA
    (b) Dear Editor:
    Notation is made of the gracious manner in which R. Algase's
    letter (02/09/09 ID) accepted responsibility for the mistake that
    the term "illegal alien" was not to be found in our entry laws.
    But the letter may exaggerate regarding use of the term,
    "ingenious". My letter's argument (02/06/09 ID) was based upon
    the observation of Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the
    Constitution: "No person except a natural born Citizen, or a
    Citizen of the U.S., at the time of the Adoption of this
    Constitution shall be eligible to the Office of President".  No
    "genious" is needed to see that a clear distinction is made
    between the two terms and that if they are not considered the
    same today, it can only be by a wrong interpretation of Wong Kim
    Ark and ignoring the proper meaning of: "subject to the
    jurisdiction thereof" limitation of the 14th Amd. regarding
    birthright citizenship. Further, this distorted view ignores that
    our Constitution was for the express benefit of: "ourselves and
    our Posterity" (US citizens) as so stated in the Preamble, not
    for any or all non-citizens of the world who could sneak in and
    have a child. The proper reaction to such would be to restore the
    original intent and there is presently legislation to do. This is
    exactly the kind of "immigration reform" that is needed, not CIR
    shamnesty. M. Freeman's (02/09/09) letter also suffers from
    severe myopia with an abundance of compassion for foreigners and
    none for US citizens or sovereignty. Those who can't muster a
    moral allegiance to US should be honest and move to the county
    where their sentiments lie to improve life there, not dilute and
    destroy ours as is being done in CA and elsewhere.

    Readers are welcome to share their comments, email:
    mailto:editor@ilw.com* (300-words or fewer preferred).
    Many letters to the Editor refer to past correspondence,
    available in our archives.
    http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/archives.shtm
    (a) Dear Editor:
    Well, RLM's letter has told us off (02/10/09 ID). Her letter
    states "very happy that I do not have to go back again to this
    terrible country that US had became."* It appears that even for
    "very well qualified, very well-balanced psichologically (sic)"
    persons, the US is just not the place for everyone. What amazes
    me about the immigration controversy is the animosity sometimes
    exhibited by persons who, for one reason or another, do not
    achieve their US immigration goals fast enough, or at all. Yes,
    our immigration system is broken; the US is not perfect - no
    country is perfect. But that is a problem for Americans to fix,
    not foreigners. Like every other country, America has the
    sovereign right to control its borders and to determine who
    enters and who stays. Today, America graciously accepts persons
    of all races, ethnicities and religions, without governmental
    discrimination, and is undeniably the most companionate country
    in the world. Anyone who disagrees is welcome to provide another
    example. With the privilege of residing in any country comes
    responsibilities. Many come to the US seeking personal gain, but
    are never asked to devote time or effort toward contributing back
    to the country as a whole through public service. We no longer
    have the "draft," conscription into military service. But should
    this eliminate the requirement of duty to public service? Perhaps
    a year of service to the nation should be mandatory for US
    citizens and to foreigners seeking admission to the US - not
    military service, but service for the public good. It is sad that
    many foreigners come to our borders, demanding entrance, and when
    rejected for immigration reasons, criticize and belittle our
    great nation, without ever understanding what America is, or what
    being an American is really all about. That is regrettable.
    David D. Murray, Esq.* Newport Beach, CA
    (b) Dear Editor:
    Notation is made of the gracious manner in which R. Algase's
    letter (02/09/09 ID) accepted responsibility for the mistake that
    the term "illegal alien" was not to be found in our entry laws.
    But the letter may exaggerate regarding use of the term,
    "ingenious". My letter's argument (02/06/09 ID) was based upon
    the observation of Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the
    Constitution: "No person except a natural born Citizen, or a
    Citizen of the U.S., at the time of the Adoption of this
    Constitution shall be eligible to the Office of President".* No
    "genious" is needed to see that a clear distinction is made
    between the two terms and that if they are not considered the
    same today, it can only be by a wrong interpretation of Wong Kim
    Ark and ignoring the proper meaning of: "subject to the
    jurisdiction thereof" limitation of the 14th Amd. regarding
    birthright citizenship. Further, this distorted view ignores that
    our Constitution was for the express benefit of: "ourselves and
    our Posterity" (US citizens) as so stated in the Preamble, not
    for any or all non-citizens of the world who could sneak in and
    have a child. The proper reaction to such would be to restore the
    original intent and there is presently legislation to do. This is
    exactly the kind of "immigration reform" that is needed, not CIR
    shamnesty. M. Freeman's (02/09/09) letter also suffers from
    severe myopia with an abundance of compassion for foreigners and
    none for US citizens or sovereignty. Those who can't muster a
    moral allegiance to US should be honest and move to the county
    where their sentiments lie to improve life there, not dilute and
    destroy ours as is being done in CA and elsewhere.

    1.  COMMENT
    Immigration Downturn
    The downturn in the economy leaves many immigration attorneys
    wondering how much of the suffering seen in their own practices
    is prevalent across the industry. Immigration Daily estimates
    that the overall field is down 8% in 2008, with another 8%
    decline anticipated for 2009. Business immigration has been hit
    the hardest with a 15% reduction in business for 2008 and about
    another 15% anticipated for 2009. On the bright side, compliance,
    including employer sanctions has been booming and is an area that
    will likely continue to grow at over 100% growth (as evidenced
    for example by DHS Secretary Napolitano who has stated that
    employer enforcement will increase). Removal work is another area
    that has been growing, however, this area is expected to slow
    down later in the year. Even AILA, the bar's organization is not
    immune to the economy's woes, forcing AILA to suspend publication
    of Immigration Law Today (formerly AILA Monthly Mailing).
    Unfortunately, the passing of any stimulus bill will likely not
    provide relief in immigration benefits. In fact, the Senate
    passed an amendment restricting H-1Bs and we expect that another
    bill being drafted now will propose for the first time
    instituting a labor certification process for H-1Bs. The silver
    lining to this dark cloud is the prospect of CIR and/or other
    immigration benefits relief. The ball is squarely in the House's
    and Senate's courts respectively. Immigration Daily will continue
    to keep you abreast of news in the field. Stay tuned.
    We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by
    writing to mailto:editor@ilw.com.

    Many letters to the Editor refer to past correspondence,
    available in our archives.
    http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/archives.shtm
    (a) Dear Editor:
    How can we, immigration advocates and AILA members, make a
    difference in the halls of Congress? There is a simple and
    effective tool (which I have used to great effect in other
    advocacy contexts.) That is, at each AILA chapter meeting,
    seminar and regional and annual conference, to set aside five (5)
    minutes for all in attendance to simultaneously use their cell
    phone to call their House Representative and/or Senator for
    immigration advocacy on a pending bill. It would create an
    amazing sense of empowerment, collegiality, serve as a catalyst
    for additional efforts, familiarize the membership with the
    relevant legislation, and, hopefully, add greatly to the numbers
    of pro-immigrant "votes" cast. This could also be applied to
    meetings of every pro-immigrant organization. It would be simple,
    inexpensive and effective.
    Norine F. Krasnogor, Esq.
    (b) Dear Editor:
    I'm afraid Maura Freeman's letter's arguments (02/07/09 ID)
    continue in the tradition of opinion based on emotion, rather
    than on fact and an understanding of migration theories,
    immigration law and the concept that a country has the right and
    the ability to pass laws deemed in the best interest of the
    country. Contrary to the letter's assertions, the US has no duty
    to show "respect" for persons who violate its laws. In fact, it
    has the right to punish them. Anchor babies can provide no
    immigration benefit to their parents until they are 21. Even
    then, they cannot provide permanent residence rights to parents
    who entered the US without inspection - see INA 245(a). It
    appears that either the letter writer does not understand this,
    or simply wishes the law were otherwise. While US citizen anchor
    babies have the lawful right to remain in the US, its parents do
    not - no more than I have the right to enter Mexico without
    proper immigration and demand to live and work there - I would be
    jailed. Ms. Freeman's letter states, "Just because a law is on
    the books does not make it fair, just or constitutional." While
    this is true, until overturned by legislation or Supreme Court
    decision, it is still the law and must be respected. Roger
    Algase's recent letters have attempted to point this out. Rampant
    disrespect and violation of law is anarchy. Twelve million
    illegals, out of a nation of 303,824,640 (July 2008 Census Bureau
    estimate), qualifies as borderline anarchy (no pun intended).
    Immigration laws are not unconstitutional and fairness and
    justice are in the eye of the beholder. The law does not "feed
    anchor babies to the lions," but neither does it allow illegal
    entrants to get a foothold in the US based on a dirty diaper.
    David D. Murray, Esq. Newport Beach, CA
    (c) Dear Editor:
    I am pleased to tell ID that I am a beautiful Brazilian, very
    well qualified, very well-balanced psichologically, and very
    happy that I do not have to go back again to this terrible
    country that US had became. Because I do have a job on my
    national country that pays me much better ( and it is far away
    form illegal activities), and that treats me like a great human
    being and that uses my qualifications as it deserves. ID. Who
    thinks is much superior, ID stinks. I do not want your kind to
    come to my homecountry.  I hope your children have to go through
    our Amazon River to get to enter into Brazil. Among piranhas and
    anacondas and salvages. And I hope ID get robbed by the poors,
    because in US I was robbed by the Government. Your descendents
    are expected to face much more discrimination than you ever
    dreamed against your enemies allies . And this hope will not fade
    away among our christianity, because our Christian path is only
    for the poors. I do not hate Americans. But I do hate your fully
    ignorance. Since, my people has the reason to be violent, but you
    had an opportunity to get educated (and spoiled it all).

    (d) Dear Editor:
    I attended the Obama Inauguration on January 20th.  This memoral
    event represents a change in our country's desire for immigration
    reform.  I look forward to attending Lobby Day in March so that
    those less fortunate may be able to immigrate to this country.  I
    also hope that this administration stops the random arrests of
    Latino's in this country.

    Readers are welcome to share their comments, email:
    mailto:editor@ilw.com  (300-words or fewer preferred).
    Many letters to the Editor refer to past correspondence,
    available in our archives.
    http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/archives.shtm
    (a) Dear Editor:
    I stand corrected by Jim Roberts' (02/06/09 ID) letter concerning
    the use of the term "illegal aliens" in the INA. In this case,
    his letter did its homework better than mine did. Unfortunately,
    I cannot say the same for his letter's insistence that there is
    distinction between a "natural born citizen of the US" in Article
    2 of the Constitution and a citizen by birth in the US under the
    14th Amendment. I will give Mr. Roberts' letter credit for making
    an ingenious argument, as others have also done in this regard. I
    also think that my letters' comments about Justice Scalia's
    opinion in the recent gun control case are pretty ingenious. But
    in the light of the 110 year old Supreme Court case of US v. Wong
    Kim Ark that so many of my letters have mentioned, Mr. Roberts'
    letter's views on the issue of who is a natural born citizen of
    the US are not the law, any more than my letters' arguments
    against Justice Scalia's gun control majority opinion are the
    law. It is high time to move on to the next topic.

    (b) Dear Editor:
    FAIR, CIS, and NumbersUSA are just an example of the racist
    organizations lobbying Congress under the guise of immigration
    reform (see 02/06/09 ID comment). John Tanton's nativist views
    should not be promulgated in any way, shape, form or fashion and
    yet Congressional members are doing just that by affiliating with
    the above-named organizations. Every effort should be made to
    make public the names of those members of Congress who support
    these groups so that there constituents and the public can know
    where their sympathies lay. There is no place in America for
    anyone who thinks that a European-American majority is required
    to maintain American culture. Again, may I remind all readers
    that not so long ago,  Germans, Irish, and Italians were not
    welcomed in this country. So much for your European-American
    majority if the predjudices of those times had been allowed to
    hold sway.

    (c) Dear Editor:
    In his zeal to create a more dramatic analogy Murray's letter
    (02/09/09 ID) suggests our undocumented workers are a putting us
    at risk for anarchy. As has been discussed by previous ID
    letters, a large component of this problem with regard to our
    Southern border is lack of respect for the families that contain
    both US Citizens and undocumented. The issue of business owners
    need for various types of workers is also a popular topic. It's
    really a question of who issued the ticket not if one exisits.
    (except criminal aliens) I have extremely conflicted feelings
    about the right of the government to restrict a citizens access
    to family members and labor. Just because a law is on the books
    does not make it fair, just or constitutional. Hopefully with
    time and a new administration "policy" will change and a more
    reasoned tone will prevail. I'm not sure "sovereignty"  fits in
    the discussion.  Its not a "nation" specifically that is
    disputing our laws its a large number of individuals seeking
    refuge in an economic disaster. It seems when a citizen is harmed
    by the law in bizzare and unforseeable ways, it should be fixed.
    Its interesting to think about though since a stowaway really
    isn't "harming"  the ship owner beyond the uncollected fare. It
    doesn't harm the other passengers in any tangible way, he is
    simply catching a ride. Would the punishment of cutting off his
    feet or encarcerating restore the ship owner? I think not. The
    only way to restore the ship owner is to make him pay his fare.
    Isn't our concept of punishment, restoration and who is being
    harmed in these matters distorted? What workable solution do you
    offer? We certainly cannot feed the anchor babies to the lions as
    some of letterwriters would have us do to prove our sovereign
    status.

    (d) Dear Editor:
    Regarding ID's Comment (2/6/09), "Nativist Lobby", is the
    complaint then that the restrictionist message movement is too
    organized, effective and well received? Is not what these groups
    are doing is what ID and others do on the opposite end of the
    spectrum?  If the former are are examples of "intolerance", are
    the latter groups then guilty of tolerating anything to the
    detriment of all of US?  Is Dr. Tanton's publishing company a
    "racist" one or simply a publishing company?  Is it then the goal
    of entry enthusiasts to not: "maintain American culture" nor "a
    European-American majority"? If so, why, and what are the motives
    for doing so? Is it not racist or worse  to approve or not
    criticize other ethnic groups for pursuing their cultural
    interests while marginalizing these groups that promote prudent
    policies for US? Yesterday's letters by Roger Algase, Esq., David
    D. Murray, Esq., and others demonstrates which view advocates the
    preservation of the rule of law and culture for US and which one
    does not.  For the benefit of those needing further explanation,
    my usage of the "Heil Hitler" salute in my letter of Feb. 5th was
    to note the similarities of attempts to limit free speech. The
    Titanic did not go down because "engineers proclaimed she was
    unsinkable" (Letter of M. Freedman - 2/5/09 ID) but because the
    limited amount of water that had supported the ship became an
    overwhelming flood of uncontrolled water that defeated her design
    or carrying capacity when containment (enforcement) was
    compromised.  The false attitude that the ship was unsinkable
    certainly contributed to the lax policies leading to the tragedy.
