    Is anyone aware if Luis Fortuno is still weighing a run for the GOP Presidential nomination? If so, what is his position on immigration reform?

    Dear Editor:

    Along with the usual misrepresentations and name calling, the Roger
    Algase blog of April 26th [ "Republicans, the birther madness and
    immigration",0426-algase.shtm ] typically arrives at

    the myopic conclusion that: "?The birther controversy is about one
    thing and one thing only - whether a black person can be a legitimate US

    Some seem to operate on the principle that confusing the issues
    contributes to obfuscating the truth. See: "Salt Lake Chamber Dupes the

    Supporters of the Utah Compact" by the Center for Immigration Studies

    The birther issue is a "controversy" only because of such tactics. The
    truth is about "one thing and one thing only" and that is the
    Constitutional requirement of a president to be a natural born citizen
    as is more succinctly set forth in: "Press Lies on Obama Eligibility
    Get Louder" by JB Williams

    The article points out that AZ Gov. Jan Brewer was wise to veto the AZ
    birther bill as it's focus was on the birth certificate issue and not
    the more important natural born citizen issue. The same questions were
    asked of presidential candidate John McCain which were resolved as both
    his parents were US citizens, contrary to Obama's situation who
    continues to hide not only his true birth records but also many other
    personal records. The obvious question that thinking Americans will not

    stop asking is WHY? The Constitutional requirement was designed to
    reduce foreign influence for US which is the same reason why Limits and
    Assimilation are essential to responsible immigration policies. See:
    ? Cal Thomas: "Assimilation preserves Nation's Identity"

    This would avoid the divisive hyphenated Americans and lack of
    allegiance that plagues US today that Pres. Teddy Roosevelt spoke of as
    well as the diversity chaos described in: by Frosty

    Confusing and misstating the issues may work on some, but the truism
    that you can't fool all of the people all the time still applies.
    More's the pity that so many continue to try.

    DHS has transmitted for publication in the Federal Register due tomorrow (Thurs. April 28, 2011), a Notice entitled "Removing Designated Countries from the National Security
    Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS)".

    The very last sentence reads: "This notice does not relieve any alien of any other requirement under the law." Does this last sentence mean that a past violation (failure to register) will still prevent approval of petitions and/or applications?
