(a) Dear Editor:
Jim Roberts' letter (10/23/09 ID) claims Biblical authority for
limiting populations, but this depends on whose population is to
be limited. I am no Biblical scholar, but I have always
understood that the Five Books of Moses strongly support
expanding the population of those who believe in the God of
Israel, as opposed to implementing often drastic measures to
limit the population of those who do not. In the same way, Mr.
Roberts' letters have rarely left any doubt about which
particular populations he would like to see limited in the US.
Robert Yang's letter (10/23/09 ID) points out the hypocrisy of
those who want to punish and throw out illegals, except when it
is convenient to look the other way. Does CNN's anti-Latino
immigrant rabble-rouser, Lou Dobbs, screen his advertisers to
make sure that none of them sell their products to illegals
before accepting their sponsorship, or does he insist that CNN do
so? Does he check his sponsors to make sure that they are all
signed on to E-Vilify and that none of them are employing any
illegals? Of course not. If he did so, he would have no sponsors
left and would be off the air in no time. Come to think of it,
this might be the best possible argument for draconian
immigration enforcement, at least as far as Dobbs' sponsors are
concerned. On this subject, it is also amazing that spokespeople
and immigration supporters in the Latino community agreed to take
part in CNN's special program on Latinos, or that its Spanish-
language channel still has an audience, while Dobbs is still
allowed to rant against minority immigrants. Latino and Asian
immigrants have considerable economic power, as the Immigration
Policy Center has been pointing out in recent reports. Why don't
they use it to drive the bigots off the air? What could be more
Roger Algase, Esq.

(b) Dear Editor:
What a plethora of Letters on (10/23/09 ID). The R. Algase letter
brands the  restrictionists as "anti-immigrant bigots" and "hate
mongers" who advocate a prudent return to lower entry rates. Yes,
"hate has terrible human consequences", so when are liberals
going to stop their hate towards citizens who want less entry? I
am reminded of immature babies who when not getting their way,
lash out at parents who are trying to make them responsible
adults, calling them bad names and charging them with hate. Think
what God has to put up with, being the Ultimate Restrictionist
(Matt: 7:13,14), whose last name is not Damn. I doubt one illegal
will get past this gate, nor those who mislead. DHS Sec'y. Janet
N. was actually very soft on illegals as AZ Gov. It doesn't look
like the D. Murray letter is getting any takers with his
invitation to visit CA by the letters of H. Prchal and John F.
The DM letter also errs with "CIR seems the only way to resolve"
the illegal problem by applying more "lipstick on the pig" of CIR
amnesty. The letter even agrees it won't work as previous
promises and efforts haven't. What will work is an end to birth
citizenship, illegal presence a felony, allow local police to
make arrests, fully secure borders, sanction employers and end
all benefits to illegals. This is not hate, but prudent policy.
The Name W. letter admits that illegals are hired as they are
more desparate and can be abused. If the R. Yang letter believes
the "brown people" are the "true owners" of this land, why don't
all who agree transfer their land titles to them? Entry abuses
are seen far more than welfare abuses that the letters complain
including entrants on welfare.  Trashing US is getting old.
Jim Roberts

(c) Dear Editor:
I feel that Mr. Roberts' letters are getting more ridiculous each
time we read them. Why fences, why boundaries on countries'
borders ? Well, if xenophobes are so afraid and dismayed on new
influx of new residents who will compete for jobs from other
states and even counties in the Union, I bet they will demand
their local lawmakers to make it illegal for other states or
counties residents to move into their localities and taking up
employments then. We need to overhaul our welfare system,
immigration laws, health care, education  to reflect more
fairness and common sense, we need to lead the world to eradicate
terrorism and ignorance by getting rid theocracy worldwide, $ 3
trillion dollar has been wasted so far on Afghanistan, Iraq and
war on terrorism without any positive result because we ignore
the fact that it's theocracy dictatorships worldwide that
support, bless, finance the movement and brainwashing of
ignorance, hatred, apartheid, violence and intolerance in the
name of religion and God. Imposing import tariffs is not a
solution for America, but lower taxes, attracting foreign
investors to invest in industries Export Processing Zones in the
US that manufacture proudly made in USA goods to be exported back
to foreign markets, opening our borders to more commerce and
tourism by enacting friendly, welcoming yet smart immigration
system that ensure our visitors will comply with the terms of
their visits by cooperating and outsourcing visas applications to
reputable local travel agencies in those countries to pre screen
the applicants and act as guarantors. We need more tourists from
China, Brazil, India, Russia etc. to shop here to ease and
reverse our trade deficits and these tourists need real Made in
USA gifts made by real Americans to be brought homes with pride.
Protectionism and trade wars won't serve anyone good.
Robert Yang

(d) Dear Editor:
Responding to the end of the widow penalty (10/22/09 ID comment),
this is good news for many family, because the old law was once
petitioner dies, application dies, so families were separated. My
only hope is if immigration will obey such legislation, or
continue to deny and deport families without any heart or
consideration, I applaud this breakthrough, and hope that the
same will be done for the many age out children that did not
benefit from CSPA, and be allowed to be converted to the
appropriate category and retain their old priority numbers under
the F4 and F3 category as derivative beneficiaries editor I am
hoping and praying that this will reach the ears of those in
authority and that they will address this as soon as possible.

(e) Dear Editor:
In response to a letter accusing one of his letters of praising
the infamous Chinese exclusion laws enacted around the turn of
the last century, Jim Roberts' letter (10/22/09 ID) denies that
he is praising them. Instead, his letter tries to justify them
with the insulting fiction that these openly racist measures were
a legitimate response to greedy US businessmen who were trying to
take advantage of cheap foreign labor by bringing in immigrants
who could not "assimilate" to American culture (i.e. had the
wrong skin color). If Confucius were alive today, he would no
doubt be able to suggest the most appropriate word to describe
this bigoted nonsense: "chutzpah".
