Impossible Subject

A Los Angeles Times editorial says "When it comes to the census,
what that suggests is that even though we may not count
[undocmented aliens] as full members of our polity, we are still
obliged to count them as individuals who occupy physical space
within our national boundaries." For the full opinion, see here.,0,7973696.column

(a) Dear Editor:
No, I don't think David Murray's letters are pointless (11/3/09
ID). What seems pointless to me are the same arguments - no
matter how well written - day after day by some regular writers
to ID. Everyone should know the positions of the other writers,
and they should know that they're not going to change one
another's minds. If, as Mr. Murray's letter states in the last
sentence, they want to try ..."to fix the system of legal
immigration.", it's time to start talking about compromises and
solutions, not simply restating their positions on the issue in
various ways. It seems to me that it would be much more
constructive to spend their time and talents addressing the
problem and discussing ways to fix it. It should be obvious by
now that any solution to the "immigration mess" is going to
require some serious compromising by "both sides".  For example,
there's going to be some form of amnesty; we're simply not going
to deport elderly illegal aliens nor children of illegal aliens
who have grown up here. Rather than just arguing whether or not
there should be amnesty, wouldn't it be more constructive to
discuss which aliens here illegally would get amnesty or some
form of legalization? And polls show that once the borders are
secured and there's more enforcement of the immigration laws, a
majority of Americans are willing to permit some form of
legalization.  All the many parts of the immigration issue would
have to be addressed in any legislation and compromises would
have to be reached. Otherwise, you'll have one "side" imposing
its will on the other, which seems like raw power rather than a
solution. And, yes, lest it be called to my attention, I have
written basically the same things before.

(b) Dear Editor:
I welcome David Murray's letters and encourage him to continue
writing his lucid thoughts on immigration (11/3/09 ID). I saved
his letter of Oct. 24, 2008  on what should be included in
immigration reform legislation and send it to my Congressional
reps as a reminder of what ought to be included in such
legislation whenever it appears that Congress is seriously ready
to take up the issue.
Mary P. Sclawy   Troy, MI

(c) Dear Editor:
In response to the poll request by David Murray's letter
(11/03/09 ID), I for one enjoy reading the letters to the Editor
section of ID each morning and although there are times when I
haven't agreed with some of the opinions of others, I have found
the majority of the letters written to be enlightening and
generally not insulting to any one particular individual with the
exception of the letters from Mr. Roberts. I too am sick of all
of the bible quotes used to justify his letter's contempt of
anyone this his letters do not consider American. Jim Robert's
letters obviously have no real desire to have a true immigration
debate and will never see any other side of this issue other than
his letter's own.  For this reason I find that his letters are
generally a waste of space in this forum.

(d) Dear Editor:
The R. Algase letter of 11/2/09 ID, who has denied Mexican
irredentism in the past, now proclaims, "We are now, effectively,
a partly Latino nation, with Spanish as a de facto second
national language." and then amazingly asks, "Is this such a
terrible thing?" Obviously, not to the letter writer (more's the
pity), but may be to US citizens who wonder why their nation is
being invaded by those who have their own. The letter feebly trys
to justify it on a dishonest economic basis that leaves out the
costs, and that much of it came illegally. As Harvard Professor
S. Huntington wrote in "The Hispanic Challenge" published in
"Foreign Policy" Mexican migration is different than past or
other entry, "due to a combination of six factors: contiguity,
scale, illegality, regional concentration, persistence, and
historical presence (and) reconquista is well underway (because
of) a historical claim to US territory". See also "Mexican
Immigration and its Potential Impact on the Political Future of
the US" by Yeh Ling Ling at and
"Multiculturalism, Immigration, and Aztlan" by Maria Chang at as well as previous letters by A. Alexander
and R. Ranger (9/24/03 ID).  Re: the 11/3/09 ID Letters,  the DM
letter is another "pointless critique" of my letters and RY
continues his letters "mindless name calling", calling me a liar,
etc. and then the letter lies about the restrictionist position,
calling it "100% complete isolation" and again trashing US. I
have agreed with some of both writers in the past. "What has our
country come to?" by C. Rodriguez is the only relevant comment
Jim Roberts

(e) Dear Editor:
I applause the ban lifting for people with HIV, so that they can
feel more comfortable and get the care that they need, however
the need for health care reform, will need immediate attention,
now more people would need help with HIV medications along with
other things, so I hope that America is ready for such (11/03/09
ID). Canada and the caribbean along with England has free health
care, so maybe America is heading in that direction. Just to add
I hope that the President is remembering the children that are
affected by harsh immigration laws and help them too, because
these children have a bright future ahead of them, so I want the
President to look into that bill that was signed by President
Bush in 2002 concerning age out children by enforcing the law,
and letting immigration interpret it honestly. So yes we need to
stop segregating about HIV and treat everyone with respect, but
we also need to put an end to this foolish game that immigration
is playing with these children and denying their application
because they reach twenty one years old, and up to now I haven't
heard not one law maker address this situation, is not only HIV
people are being separated from their families, these people are
suffering too some of these are college grads with Masters and
Doctoral degree and because the system are being unfair to them
by not following the INA 203(H)(3) CSPA act of 2002 and allow
these children to retain their old priority dates as derivative
beneficiary of their parent petition.
