recommended political asylum for a Guatemalan woman fleeing
horrific abuse by her husband, the strongest signal yet that the
administration is open to a variety of asylum claims from foreign
women facing domestic abuse." For the full news story, see here.

(a) Dear Editor:
This is not directly on point at first, but lately most of the
letters (10/30/09 ID) have dragged poor God into the immigration
debate. Responding to Mr. Yang's letter, the Founding fathers,
did not by and large separate Church and state - they opposed the
establishment (tax supported church structures where church
officers are also officers of the government and require loyalty
oaths) of a national church either because they viewed the state
as a threat to religion, were tolerant of minority faiths like
James Madison's Orange County Baptists or because they supported
theocracies like those that dominated New England. Both
ideologically and practically, freedom of religion is closer to
freedom for religion than freedom from it. Religious talk has
always been central to our public discourse. Just listen to our
last three Presidents, two of them Democrats. Some Americans are
made uncomfortable by that, but I doubt they are any more more
comfortable by identity politics. The result of our smorgasbord
approach to religion in public life has always been a remarkable
degree of tolerance in this country, in marked contrast to
secular revolutionary regimes from the Directorate's France and
Kemal Mustafa's Turkey to Maoist China or Fascist Italy. God talk
need not be divisive, and even if divisive, it need not be evil.
Besides, God's word is in many ways too refined to be made ready
use of for either party, and just policy could either discourage
or encourage immigration. One imagines that rendering unto Caesar
does set a default for obeying laws where those laws are not
clearly unjust, however, and probably even when they are unjust
but can be changed lawfully, as I am convinced our immigration
laws can be. I can defend that position on secular grounds too,
but I'll leave that to better keyboards, like Mr. Murray's.
Honza Prchal, Esq.   Birmingham, AL

(b) Dear Editor:
Jim Roberts' letter (10/30/09 ID) claims that deportation is not
oppression. America has certainly come a long way from the wisdom
and humanity of Justice Brandeis in the famous 1922 Supreme Court
case of Ng Fung Ho vs. White, when he said that deportation may
deprive a person of "all that makes life worth living". The
Roberts' letter lacks even the candor of other restrizzionisti
such as Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies,
who, in a 2005 article, launched the concept of reducing
"illegal" (translation: "Latino") presence in the US through a
policy of "attrition", i.e. making life in America hell on earth
for unwanted ethnic groups. One of the ways to do this, of
course, is by throwing people out of work, as DHS Secretary Janet
Napolitano is seeking to do with her "E-Vilify" programs and
anti-employer witch hunts, or locking them up in concentration
camp type conditions, as Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was
doing under INA Section 287(g) until Secretary Napolitano
recently tried to yank that particular rug out from under him.
Why has America moved so far away from the spirit of Justice
Brandeis (whose above dictum was actually followed as recently as
1980 by the 9th Circuit that is so despised by restrictionistas)?
The answer is simple: We are now, effectively, a partly Latino
nation, with Spanish as a de facto second national language. Is
this such a terrible thing? The purchasing power of Latinos in
the US is estimated at close to a trillion dollars, if not more.
Is impoverishing Latino communities really the best way to pull
America out of a deep recession?
Roger Algase, Esq.   New York, NY

(c) Dear Editor:
The SPLC and others who "love" to falsely accuse entry
restrictionists and patriots of hate just got a big boost as BO
signs the 'hate crimes' bill into law which adds federal crime
enhancers to any crime against: race (except caucasian), color
(except white), religion (except christian), national origin
(except American), gender (except male) and sexual orientation
(except heterosexual). Such builders of Babel and Babylon should
not leave out God who is the greatest hater of all as we read in
Proverbs 6:16-19 about the six things "doth the Lord hate" and
Psalms 11:5 where He "hateth" the wicked or 9:17 where the
"wicked shall be turned into hell".  Re: the Letters of 10/30/09
ID, in the D. Murray critique about Bible references, the words
are mine, but the "implications" are his letter's own, as I
originally was responding to an ID article by a pro-entry writer
who used scriptures. It seems to be ok for other letters to use
them, but not mine. It is the DM letters continual pointless
critiques of others and the mindless name calling of the RY
letters that adds nothing to the debate. To answer the questions
of R. Algase's letter, it is in the interests of US to deport
illegals, any sad details of which are entirely upon the head of
the trespasser. The R. Yang letter now praises US and the
Founding Fathers which were severely trashed in the past for
stealing lands, being hypocrites and  illegal entrants, etc. No
mention as to any transfer of land titles to their "rightful
owners".  No one denies that competition is a fact of life, but
trade policies should be in favor of and protecting of US, not
foreigners, banksters, special interests and profiteers.
