300-words). Past correspondence is available in our archives


http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/archives.shtm

(a) Dear Editor:


Responding to 11/6/09 Letters, the T. Krishnamurthy letter should


not be "frustrated" because some dwell on the macro aspects of


entry which really have more impact than the micro parameters.


The problems of mass entry and Mexican irredentism can and is


changing US and effects all citizens while the "nuts and bolts"


issues affect some citizens and others. Until the former are


addressed, streamlining the latter only adds to the numbers. This


is how the irresponsible, pro-entry crowd hurts a limited,


selective entry by forcing so many resources to be allocated to


the huge abuses of the past and present. This is where much, if


not most, of the blame should be for the present "mess" and lax


policies. Even if one is an atheist, the Bible can teach us more


than merely perspectives on entry, such as the need for wisdom


(Prov. 3: 13-35) in resolving difficult problems and not narrow


views (I Cor. 12:14-22 & II Chron. 30:8), excluding wisdom from


any person or source. Those who dislike "Bible thumping" seem to


have more need. My vote for the most profound, relevant letters


here would be those of Mary and P. Keenan. Many letters have


"bent over backwards" to glean some truths from R. Yang letters


which has been hard when our history and the Bible are


alternately praised and then trashed, the displayed illiteracy


and the "Everything I say can be substantiated by my own opinion"


arrogant attitude and insults. The experiment in polyglot


multiculturalism is not going well with the Islamic shooting at


the TX military base, the FBI shooting of a radical in Detroit,


and the "honor" killing of a daughter by her father in AZ in


addition to the Latino separatist movement with the drugs,


thefts, killings, etc
