(a) Dear Editor:
Honza Prchal's letter (12/22/09 ID) expresses a* "rational
contempt" for Mexican immigrants, who, the letter alleges, cannot
easily be assimilated into American society. Benjamin Franklin
expressed similar contempt toward German-speaking immigrants in
colonial Pennsylvania over two centuries ago, writing that they
could no more adopt the English language and customs than they
could change the color of their skin. Mr. Prchal's letter is in
keeping with a long American tradition. Whether it is one to be
proud of is another question. The Obama administration's claim
that it is targeting employers, not immigrants and their
families, for enforcement activities, and its related claim that
its actions against immigrants are focused on "smart enforcement"
against dangerous criminal aliens, not immigrants who lack legal
status but pose no danger to this country, have a familiar ring.
People living in Eastern Europe, Mr. Prchal's native area of the
world according to his letters, must have been used to hearing
many statements from their governments under Soviet occupation
that were equally worthy of belief. In order to gain a better
understanding of the various actions and pronouncements of
President Obama's Department of Homeland Security with regard to
immigration policy in general, and enforcement in particular, the
works of another native of what is now the Czech Republic, Franz
Kafka, contain many useful insights. The writings of George
Orwell can also provide helpful guidance.

(b) Dear Editor:
Abraham wasn't a "sojourner" nor asking for the natives of Canaan
for a little charity and help when he immigrated from the his
native land of Ur (Northern Iraq) today. When ancient Israelis
moved to Egypt from starvation in their homeland, they stayed
there for generations until Moses then brought them back home.
The Pilgrims were not "sojourners" either. Human beings always
moved temporarily or permanently, traded, worked in different
others' territories, kingdoms etc. in the past, there were no
complicated barriers as of today complicated and apartheid
immigration laws in every nations on Earth. There were little
wage level differential since trades were engaged by bartering or
using gold and silver as universally acceptable currency anywhere
on the planet. We actually have no rights whatsoever to limit and
restrict our fellow human beings who want to trade, move, live,
work and settle anywhere on this planet as long as they don't
become financial burden for others. Welfare states didn't exist
in the past. There were not much fuss about others becoming
social and economy parasites on others.

    1. have just hit my fifties and I have established a very comfortable financial position. I am a financial consultant for a highly successful international brokerage house, but it has not always been that way.

    I have experienced hard times, particularly when I was younger, and it was then that I developed the bedrock of my financial resources, The Winning Way which is on offer on this web site. Once that system took off the old adage of money makes money has never been more true. The instant cash flow gave me the opportunity to try out a trading system, 100% Profit In One Year which is also on offer here and this accelerated cash into my account like there was no tomorrow.
