6.  Headlines

(a) Massachusetts And The 60-Vote Senate Fallacy

But would a Martha Coakley loss to State Sen. Scott Brown really
debilitate Obama's agenda in 2010? The answer to that is a lot
less clear than you think.

(b) Why Haiti Matters

But above all, we act for a very simple reason: in times of
tragedy, the United States of America steps forward and helps.

(c) About 250 March To Support Immigration Bill

It was coordinated with nationwide rallies led by Reform
Immigration for America of Washington, D.C., a campaign supported
by the nonprofit Tides Advocacy Fund of San Francisco, a lobbying
group that supports liberal causes.

"There's nothing more permanent than a temporary visa."

(a) Dear Editor:
With regard to ID's comment about the catastrophe in Haiti
(01/14/10 ID), sending US military assistance to help the victims
is certainly more beneficial than propping up a government of
corrupt warlords and drug dealers in Afghanistan, or making Iraq
secure for Western oil companies. ID has done excellent research
on the long history of relations between Haiti and North America.
But the biggest symbols of the close ties between Haiti and the
US are Chrome Detention Center and the US Coast Guard. The
Department of Homeland Security, after making a humanitarian
gesture by granting Temporary Protected Status to Haitians in the
US, has now reverted to its usual immigration enforcement-only
mode. According to the Washington Post, DHS has announced that
Haitians trying to escape the horrors caused by the earthquake
will be prevented from coming to the US. The same report says
that expanded immigration detention facilities are already being
prepared to "welcome" anyone who manages to avoid being turned
back or drowning at sea. The inhuman policy of using the Coast
Guard to stop Haitian refugees on the high seas and force them
back to their country in violation of international law dates
from the Clinton era. But despite the Obama administration's
reassuring rhetoric about America's friendship for Haiti, it
seems that for Janet Napolitano's DHS, appeasing those who want
to keep people of color out of the US at all costs is the top
priority, even as Haiti turns into a vast tomb.
Roger Algase, Esq. New York, NY

(b) Dear Editor:
I really enjoyed ID's comment (01/14/10), agree with it in most
part, and am appreciative. However, I would like to make the
following correction: Haiti did not exist at that time ... Haiti
as we know it was created in 1804. The Haitian Revolution started
in 1791 and ended in 1804. Way after the American Revolution. The
people who helped the American Revolution were not Haitian per
say; they were free African slaves of Saint-Domingue, under the
command of Comte d'Estaing, for their participation in the siege
of Savannah. The proper name for the island currently shared by
the Dominican Republic and the Republic of Haiti, was "AYITI". A
land rightfully owned by an Arawak people who called themselves
Tainos. It is possible that they could have called these free
African slaves: Africans of Ayiti.
Yosie Saint-Cyr

(c) Dear Editor:
In August 2002 Mr Bush passed a law to protect children from
aging out due to backlogs and visa availability in certain
preference category, however immigration is yet to follow the
instruction of this law. Ina203(h)(d) and publication 107-208 of
the Child Status Protection act clearly states that if a child
age out ,meaning reach the age of 21, the child age will be
subtracted from the number of days the i130 was pending ,and when
a visa becomes available from the child age, so their age will be
locked in. The other part states that if after doing this
calculation the child age is said to be 21 or older, the child
must be converted to the appropriate category and retain the old
priority date upon receipt, again this bill clearly states that
the age out child will be converted to either the 2b or whatever
category they fall under to keep their old priority date.
Immigration is yet to do that instead they came up with their own
interpretation and deny giving these children the chance of
getting a green card, by giving them a new priority date when
their parent reapply for them, putting them back to the end of a
very long line for another 10years after they waited with their
parent for almost 15years already. This is a very serious issue
and congress and Mr Obama need to look into this This is such an
unfair situation it hurts me when i think about this. President
Obama must look into this, and if I have to walk from NY to
Washington to get this message out I will, because too many lives
are affected by this. This treatment is harsh and cruel, this is
not humane.
