Lets Get With It

We are calling our nation to a change of heart and hopefully that
change of heart will result in good news for undocumented
immigrants, said [Roman Catholic Bishop] Wenski, who has been a
visible advocate for legalization of immigrants over the past
several years. For the full Orlando Sentinel news story, see here.,0,5646445.story

sufficient control over their employees at client sites.",0217-jaidi.shtm

(b) Bloggings On Immigration Law And Policy

Greg Siskind writes "[] news that Indiana Democratic Senator Evan

(c) Theory And Crisis

Sheldon Richman for the Foundation For Economic Education writes
"There is never a good time to throw aside theory and just act,

(a) Dear Editor:
I have a client who was released from Florence AZ. She needs to
travel to NYC. However, she was stuck in the airport in Phoenix.
TSA did not allow her to pass the security. ICE told me a letter
from ICE was sufficient for her to travel by air and TSA
supervisor told me a letter plus two additional original IDs was
required to pass the security.  My client escaped from her home
country because of persecution, without having original ID issued
by her or his home country at the time. She was in the airport
for hours without being allowed to board the plan.  I wonder what
kind of level of communications TSA and ICE has for these aliens
in proceedings who need to travel by air.
Sufen Hilf, Esq.    Franklin, MI

(b) Dear Editor:
Good that ID brings (see 02/16/10 ID comment) this sort of thing
to light.  We continue to have unfair immigration practices.
Furthermore, it is very difficult to understand the logic in
refusing legal status to a spouse of a US citizen. Only proof
that a marriage is "bogus" should be reasonable grounds for not
allowing legal resident status.
Sylvia Theriault, Esq.

(c) Dear Editor:
There is nothing mixed about the message that ICE (Immigration
and Customs Enforcement) is sending to a Jamaican tennis player
who, according to what appears to be overwhelming evidence
related in the Honolulu Advertiser newspaper, as reported in an
ID comment dated 02/16/10, risked his life to help the US
government apprehend and convict a brutal killer who had murdered
his victim in front of the victim's 7 year old daughter. The
message is simple. "If you are from a Caribbean country and you
overstayed your US visa, we don't care about any help you gave to
the US government. We don't care about any promises that the US
government may have made to you in return for risking your life
to help it enforce the law against a dangerous and violent
criminal. We don't care that you are married to a US citizen. We
don't care that your life may be in danger if you return to your
country. We only care about getting you out of the US as fast as
possible, so that we will have one more deportation statistic to
show voters out there who think that there are already too many
people who have the same skin color as you in this country. If
you ever trusted the US government to keep its word, you are a
sap and deserve to be treated like one". A pretty clear message,
I would say.
Roger Algase, Esq.  New York, NY

(d) Dear Editor:
My "common ground" with the Letter of R. Algase (2/16/10 ID)
extends to agreeing that any literacy tests should be equally and
fairly applied to all and that certainly the example that the
letter provided was inappropriate.  But that was then and this is
now.  The letter uses one example from another era to advocate
that no literacy tests are appropriate, ignoring that they could
be appropriate if administered equally. There is nothing
inherently wrong with the idea that a certain degree of literacy
is needed in order to vote.  Let's let Tom Tancredo speak for
himself.  In a article: "The Uncivil Debate Over Civic
Illiteracy" in response to his Tea Party speech, he tells of the
barrage of vitriolic hate mail. For those who are fond of
labelling others hate groups and speech, it is revealing as to
where the real hate lies.  These emails seemed to indicate that
"all adults should be forced to vote, no matter how ignorant to
the civic affairs of the community".  Also, "I have often
suggested that new voters should be required to pass the civics
literacy test already given to immigrants who want to become
naturalized citizens. Yet, my suggestion was twisted into the
idea that I want to see a return to 'Jim Crow laws'. This
distortion requires two acts of self-deception. First, it
requires one to believe that minorities will fail any civics
test. Secondly, it requires a willful disregard of real history.
Blacks were not kept from voting by the laws themselves but the
blatant discriminatory way they were administered by local
officials. It is absurd to claim that any civics literacy test
will be discriminatory.  As driving licenses are essential for
public safety, so are fairly applied literacy tests for the
preservation of what's left of our form of government.
