3.  ARTICLES


(a) Aggravated Felons And 212(c) Relief


Pravinchandra J. Patel writes "The clear lesson of this saga is
that attorneys as counsel should not be fatally influenced by the
current official thinking regarding the interpretation of any INA
provision; rather being advocates that we are supposed to be
representing an individual in his or her fight against the system
of behemoth proportion."

(b) Bloggings On Nurse And Allied Health Immigration


Christopher T. Musillo writes "Now all applicants to FCCPT must
obtain the Type I Certificate."

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


(a) Dear Editor:
I do not believe that I am the only one who has noticed that the
letters of Jim Roberts have lately been overly-peppered with out-
of-contexts references to the Bible to somehow support certain
views on immigration, or reinforce points attempting to be made.
I humorously alluded to this in my (10/28/09 ID) letter.  The
Roberts letters' (10/29/09 ID) recent references to the Bible
seem to add no significance to the immigration debate. Not all
Americans are Christians and not all Americans believe the Bible
is "the word of God." In fact no all Americans believe in the
concept of the Judeo/Christian God of Wrath, Hell, Fire and
Brimstone. Therefore, Mr. Roberts' letters implication that
Americans should turn to the Bible in order to base, or
substantiate, their views on any subject, including immigration,
is baseless and falls on many deaf ears. Mr. Roberts' letter of
criticizes Robert Yang's letters' views on globalism and free
trade and admonishes him to, "...stop these irrelevant rants and
mindless name calling..." seemingly reflecting the point of view
that anyone who disagrees with the Roberts letters, or states a
contrary opinion, is irrelevant and mindless. As the warden in
the Paul Neumann movie, "Cool Hand Luke" said, "What we've got
here is failure to communicate." When any debate, including the
immigration debate, is debased to name calling and personal
attacks, it loses any effectiveness whatsoever for resolving the
issues at hand, which in this case is immigration reform. I
wonder what Bible passage I just violated by saying that?
David D. Murray, Esq.                 Newport Beach, CA


(b) Dear Editor:
A recurring theme of Jim Roberts' letters (10/29/09 ID) is that
the interests of immigrants are opposed to those of Americans. A
relative of a friend of a friend of mine had been in the US
illegally for several years and had to return to his native
Mexico in order to file a waiver application based on financial
hardship to his US citizen wife and children. He had to close
down a thriving business in the US which can be assumed to have
been providing jobs to US citizens. Is it in the interests of his
American family members for him to continue to have to wait
outside the US? Was it in the interests of any US workers who
might have lost their jobs with his business to know that one
more Hispanic illegal is "getting what he deserves"? Are the
interests of American companies opposed to those of their
immigrant customers who are helping to keep them in business?
David D. Murray's letter (10/29/09 ID) points out the correct
meaning of "non-immigrant" under US law, namely someone with a
temporary visa as opposed to a green card. But who picked the
word "non-immigrant" in the statute to describe someone who is
clearly an immigrant in the normal sense of the word because he
or she is living in a different country? Franz Kafka? With regard
to the Biblical quotation in my October 29 letter, it will no
doubt be tempting for some to try to interpret the injunction
against oppressing aliens as applying to legal aliens only. But
that is not what the passage says. The Bible speaks for itself.
Roger Algase, Esq.                 New York, NY


(c) Dear Editor:
The H. Prchal letter (10/29/09 ID) is almost a restrictionist
with the call for more selective entry and barring illegals. But
the membership is declined with the failure to see the need to
restrict numbers and calling for others to have the same easy
access that the Latino invaders do. See "How Long Before we
Become a Nation of 50 Californias" by F. Wooldridge at
newswithviews.com. While NYC and CA may have been "economic power
houses", both are in serious deterioration, debt and decline as
astute author Fred Siegel describes in, "The Future Once Happened
Here". Both have become sanctuary Disneylands for illegals by
pandering politicos with many free rides. The letters perception
of, "a country as sparsely populated as ours" is remarkable which
may be true if the comparison is with India or China. While the
letters have denied it previously, the reality of the reconquista
resolve of many Mexicans is now noted. It is the numbers that
would make this possible which is unfair to citizens and other
entrants alike. A "sane" entry policy would include limited
entry, secured borders, visa tracking but no waivers, deporting
illegals, employee sanctions, no birth citizenships, amnestry or
other benefits.  The R. Algase letter (10/29/09 ID) example of
Exodus 22:21  settles nothing because a policy of deportation
does not constitute or require mistreatment, nor does restricting
entry or enforcing laws. Only liberals and others with agendas
falsely say that prudent policies and humane enforcement are
mistreatment or oppression.
Jim Roberts


(d) Dear Editor:
Regarding Jim Roberts' letter (10/29/09 ID): Our Founding Fathers
were wise enough to separate the Church and State, so this
country wouldn't be ruined by stupid sectarian violence and run
by barbaric, hypocrite, corrupt, incompetence, holier than thou
theocracy dictators. Our Founding Fathers were not anti Bible nor
religions but in fact they tried to save the nation from
inequality, sexism, segregation, ignorance, intolerance and
violence in the name of faiths and God. The beauty of America is
while ones may believe in the Bible or any other "holy books",
ones can always be skeptical and critical on whatever written in
them without being punished as blasphemers and heretics, that's
why free speech should always be protected so rational and
intellectual debates will always be robust and protected as a
part of our constitutional rights. I'm also grateful to live in a
country that believe in market economy and because of plenty of
competition we enjoy the lowest prices and many products and
services on this planet. We have the best deals on consumer goods
and services in general--bargains on designer perfumes and
apparels, computers and electronics, but yet the most cumbersome
visitor visas policies for potential foreign shoppers and
tourists to come here spending money creating many jobs for us
that can't be outsourced, and these jobs killing policies must
change. Americans save money when others are willing to work for
less for us and we should appreciate and be grateful for it. If
anyone get hurt by any competition locally, regionally or
globally by any means, it's an unfortunate situation. It's not
profiting or else but it's the reality of life that
restrictionistas trying to deny and avoid by trying to impose
apartheid protectionist laws and policies to justify their self
centered purposes and arguments.
Robert Yang
