Ellis Annie

The New York Times reports "As it turned out, the first immigrant
to set foot on Ellis Island when it opened on Jan. 1, 1892, an
Irish girl named Annie Moore, did not go west and die in Texas,
as had long been believed, but spent her days as a poor immigrant
on the Lower East Side, dying in 1924." For the full story, see here.

(a) Dear Editor:
With regard to Gladys C. Farris' letter (12/29/09 ID) it is worth
remembering that of the approximately 3,000 people killed in the
September 11, 2001 attacks, around 500 were foreign born.
According to contemporary CNN reports, the victims came from at
least 90 different countries, if I recall correctly. Despite the
ranting of countless politicians and talk show hosts over the
last eight years about the "3,000 Americans" who died in the
attacks, the attacks were not only against the American people,
but against America's core values of tolerance and diversity,
regardless of race, creed or national origin. I have not seen any
reports indicating that the terrorists ever checked the
immigration status of their victims.
Roger Algase, Esq.* New York, NY

(b) Dear Editor:
In re Mr. Algase's letter (12/28/09 ID), apology accepted. As for
his statement that "I still fail to see any difference between
his letters' express and implied slurs against Mexican immigrants
as "less easy to assimilate" and Benjamin Franklin's rants making
the same accusations against German-speaking immigrants more than
200 years ago.", I feel I owe an explanation though not a
rebuttal. America has a certain carrying capacity to assimilate
new people into its remarkably welcoming and successful culture
and institutions. I argue that with some modern institutions
actually dedicated to mediating between Spanish speaking
immigrants and pretty much everyone else instead of assimilating
them, and with the preponderance of Mexicans among those Spanish
speakers, it is harder for Mexicans to assimilate. We need to
vary the mix to both speed assimilation and increase our capacity
to take immigrants in without heightening social tensions as much
as present policy does. My gripe isn't with Mexicans per se, it
is with a system that allows in so many more Mexicans than
Punjabis and that further increases the number of illegals among
them. That's a recipe for bi-culturalism. Bi-culturalism is bad.
Seems to me the pro-Mexican position is actually anti-immigrant
since the voting public will not tolerate being made to feel like
foreigners in their own country but has long shown a high
tolerance for an Epcott Center like smorgasbord of foreignness.
Assimilation is one of those things one knows when one sees it,
and things like English language proficiency, participation in
the workforce or census or voter rolls are all fairly good
proxies for it. The Devil is and always will be in the details,
but intentionally making immigration flows more of a hassle to
voters by failing to optimize its make up to make it as palatable
as possible is silly.
Honza Prchal, Esq.** Birmingham, AL

(c) Dear Editor:
We are to be blamed for this Nigeria bomber, because our embassy
was warned about this guy by his father, but they did nothing to
stop him they still went ahead and give him a visa to come here,
without any question. London denied him renewal of a student
visa, but we are too naive we take things for granted and cost
innocent people their lives in the process, the same thing happen
on 911 we issue student visa to these people and allow them on a
plane without any question, and even after they took down the
towers and died in the process* immigration was still issuing
renewal of their student visas Something is not right with this
picture, because immigration is too busy trying to find ways to
denied law abiding people their green cards, and not following
the law, instead doing what their mind tell them to do or how
they feel, because they have the power too and blank honest
children who are contributing in a very positive way to this
country their green cards after they waited for some ten to
fifteen years in line to get one and pay all the required fees
but over looking these nuisance that up to no good a chance to
come and destroy our country, every act of terror that took place
was done by people who was in legal status, none of them was
illegal! But yet still the illegals in this country can't stand a
chance, they are being treated like hard core criminals, but yet
a boy that was on the terror list could walk in an american
embassy and walk out with a valid visa, he even went through
security and still boarded a plane not once but twice with
explosives in his under wear, what a picture.
