  1. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    Regardless of what else President Obama may accomplish while he is in office. his cynicism, cowardice and expediency in continuing to deport unauthorized immigrants who are not violent criminals or terrorists and pose no danger to this country at record levels in order to cater to the bigots and hatemongers among us will be an indelible stain on his record. The best comparison I can think of is to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, otherwise one of Americas's greatest presidents, who barred America's doors to large numbers of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany, effectively condemning many to death in Hitler's extermination camps, in order to appease anti-semitic feeling which was rife in America at that time.

    America must get over the fiction that the current mania for persecuting Hispanic and other brown skinned immigrants under the guise of "immigration enforcement" has anything to do with upholding the law. If upholding the law is so important, why are all the BP executives still at large? Nor can President Obama try to pin the blame on Rahm Emmanuel or any other subordinates for the administration's cruel and heartless policy toward people trying to flee the desperate poverty and drug violence in America's southern neighbor. Both Latino voters today and history books tomorrow will hold Barack Obama, and Barack Obama only, responsible for this tragedy. Trying to shift the blame to his advisors is beneath contempt.
  2. John Frecker's Avatar
    The hysterical letters by Roger Algase do little to add to the debate about immigration. He may be opposed to almost any enforcement of the immigration laws; but, with few exceptions, polls show that a large majority of Americans want those laws enforced. If you want to change the laws in the U.S., you have to convince "the other side" of the error of their ways or you have to reach some accomodation. If you arrogantly insult those who disagree with you, you're more apt to "arouse their spirit of competition" than you are to reach some kind of agreement.

    And if a large number of "Hispanic and other brown skinned immigrants" are being impacted by immigration enforcement, it's due to the fact that they make up such a large proportion of the illegal population in the U.S.
  3. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    I appreciate Mr. Frecker's comments on my letters. It is gratifying to have some reaponse, even a negative one. But with all due respect, it is hypocritical to argue that the immigration issue is only about law enforcement.

    Restrictionists are all for enforcing the immigration laws to the letter when they keep minority immigrants out. But when the laws let minority immigrants in, as is the case with H-1B or family reunion, or when they give the federal government supremacy in setting immigration policy, or, most of all, when, as is the case with the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, the laws give millions of children of Spanish-speaking immigrants US citizenship by birth without regard to their parent's immigration status, or lack of it, then the restrictionists want to trash the law entirely. That is, to say the least, highly selective law enforcement. It is also known as bigotry.
  4. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    Just a few more words in answer to John Frecker: It is true that that Mexican and other immigrants coming or staying here illegally are lacking in respect for the law. They are, however, showing a respect for America's great tradition as a nation of immigrants who are seeking a better life and escaping from poverty or repression that most of us who are native born Americans have lost. These immigrants, I submit, are the true Americans. They understand our country's generous and open spirit better than we do.

    Yes, laws are there to be enforced. But, as George W. Bush said, you can't kick 12 million people out of the country. Those who think that we can, through "attrition" or some other means, are simply deluded. And how much respect for the law upholding federal supremacy over immigration did the Arizona legislature and governor show when they enacted that state's "Wo sind Ihre Papiere?" immigration law? How much respect did they show for free speech or equal protection of the law when they tried to imitate George Orwell by rewriting history and banning not just Latino, but all ethnic studies?

    What Arizona has tried to do, plainly and simply, is to write and enforce its own immigration law, free from the federal control that, for example, had tried to place at least a few limits on the reign of terror conducted by Maricopa Sheriff Joe Arpaio and other local officials against Latino immigrants, legal and illegal. Arizona's law says that "attrition through enforcement" is now the public policy of that state. Is that also federal immigration public policy? If so, in what statute or regulation does it appear? If it is not federal public policy, where in the Constitution does it say that Arizona has the right to set its own immigration policy?

    What federal law or regulation gives USCIS Deputy Director Donald Neufeld the right to write his own personal H-1B law, cutting out the right of an entire class of employers to use the H-1B system, without going through the regulatory or legislative process required by federal law? There is an excellent article on this in today's ID issue.

    What law or regulation gave Mr. Neufeld the right to withdraw the protection against deportation that has been available to people with properly filed and approvable green card (I-485 adjustment of status) applications for many years, without going through the proper administrative process, as he did in a memo issued in May, 2009?

    We only hear about illegal immigrants, who have the least power or ability to defend themselves when they disregard the law. But why do we hear so little about government officials and legislators who abuse their own authority and flout the law in order to keep both legal and illegal brown-skinned immigrants out?
  5. John Frecker's Avatar
    Mr. Algase had to resort to the trump card of "his side" of the immigration argument - inferring that all us "restrictionists" are "bigots". It's useless to argue the point with him because he apparently has his mind made up and doesn't want to consider any conflicting information.

    I consider myself to be a "restrictionist"; I believe illegal immigration should be eliminated ("restricted), to the extent possible, and that legal immigration should be reduced ("restricted") to about 300,000 per year. Once an alien is lawfully admitted to country and hasn't entered illegally or through fraud, it doesn't matter to me where they're from or what their ethnicity is. The point is, that Mr. Algase simply attacks anyone who disagrees with him in the immigration
    "debate". His views and those of others like him will do nothing to help in solving the problem.

    I learned at labor-management negotiations that parties who totally disagree can work toward solving problems. But they have to agree first that they want to solve the problem, not just impose their will and views on the other party.
