The quest for overhauling immigration received two very welcome
lifts on New Year's Day.

(b) Illinois Senate Candidates Say Little On Immigration

Illinois politicians and activists have helped shape the national
Immigration debate, but those vying for President Barack Obama's
former U.S. Senate seat had little of substance to say when asked
about the issue recently by The Associated Press.

(c) Too Many Dying Along The Border

border crossers were found in fiscal 2009. That was up from 171
in fiscal 2008.

"Whenever we see our brothers and sisters being treated wrongly,"
Mr. Johnson said in an interview, "it's incumbent on us to raise
our voices. For those of us who've been involved in the struggle

to pass the benefits along."

(a) Dear Editor:
The letters of Linda Cogill, Bob and C. McGinnis (01/05/10 ID)
all show from various angles how strong the bias of American
officialdom is against legal immigrants. Not only our horrendous
detention centers, but our entire immigration system is a
national disgrace. This is especially true now, when all
immigrants, not just illegals, are being made scapegoats for home
grown American economic problems. This is destructive and self-
defeating. If the Department of Homeland Security were not so
obsessed with going after employers who might have accidentally
checked the wrong box on an I-9 form, it might have been able to
find at least one staff member to assign to checking out the
background of the Christmas day terrorist before he was allowed
on a US- bound plane. And if the State Department were not
wasting its time denying a visa because a fiancée could not
remember a detail about her intended spouse from 15 years before,
it might also be more effective in locating terrorists. People
who have never done this country any harm languish in unspeakably
awful immigration jails, while the real dangers to this country
remain at large. The mistake is in thinking that all we need to
do is kick out 12 million Hispanics and then the "good"
immigrants will all get their visas. That will never happen,
because the same kind of prejudice that is calling for mass
expulsion of illegal Latinos is also trying to slam the gates
against the more "desirable", "qualified" or "assimilable" would-
be legal immigrants from many parts of the world. Hatred and
xenophobia do not distinguish between legal and illegal, educated
and unskilled, rich and poor, immigrants.
Roger Algase, Esq. New York, NY

(b) Dear Editor:
Regarding the Letters of (01/04/10 ID) and (01/05/10 ID), the
narrow and slanted focus of entry enthusiasts is painfully
obvious which ignores that migration to the US is an enormous
subject and affects nearly every aspect of our national life and
that citizens and US interests need to be considered over those
of migrants. Bob's letter complains that entry is, "difficult,
expensive, complex, and often impossible to get a Visa" as if
entrants have a right that entry is easy, free, simple and
available on demand. The fact is that entry has been too easy
with lax enforcement  and much fraud which has resulted in more
entry than most nations. Isreal has never had an airline bombing
because of effective controls but we just avoided this by
allowing a visa to a terrorist who out of shear luck, couldn't
pull it off. All potential entrants are not gifted geniuses but
most will work for less pay.  Letters of RA and HP covet the
numbers of the Mexican invasion while S. Sheplov, despite the
true accounts of D. Murray, minimizes the need for assimilation
and ignores the numbers and in the past has endorsed "Occupied
America".  This radical, racist book is used in "Raza Studies" in
SW schools, urges ReConquista and portrays US as evil. Page 167
bans all "gringos" and on page 323 to kill them.  Better reading
is:  Robert Locke's "Close The Borders",  Roger McGrath's "Mexico
Comes to California",  Jared Taylor's  "The Myth of Diversity",
Larry Auster's "The Path To National Suicide",   Peter Brimelow's
"Alien Nation".  Roy Beck's "The Case Against Immigration",
Victor Davis Hanson's  "Mexifornia: A State of Becoming",  Mark
Krikorian's  "The New Case Against Immigration: Both Legal and
Illegal" or Otis Graham's  "Immigration Reform And America's
Unchosen Future".  America is not the refugee, job or migrant
center for  the world.
