1.  COMMENT


Census Question


San Antonio Express-News
http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/65029137.html
reports on a Congressional battle over inclusion of questions
about citizenship and immigration status in 2010 census. "The
amendment by Sen. David Vitter, R-La., would freeze the Census
Bureau's budget if more than 425 million forms aren't changed
before the 2010 decennial count. Rep. Charlie Gonzalez, head of
the Congressional Hispanic Caucus task force on civil rights,
said Vitter was trying to politicize the census over the hot-
button issue of unauthorized immigration."

300-words). Past correspondence is available in our archives
http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/archives.shtm


(a) Dear Editor:
The end of the widow penalty (10/22/09 ID Comment) marks an
historic victory and abolishes the terrible practice of
compounding one tragedy on top of another - the death of the U.S.
citizen spouse and the subsequent deportation of the surviving
spouse.  Brent Renison has been at the helm of this advocacy and
his tireless efforts should be acknowledged and applauded as a
champion for doing what is right and perservering.  Brent has
worked zealously for years on this cause, including appearing on
60 Minutes and going to Washington to lobby to end this
antiquated and unfair punishment.   As an immigration attorney
member of SSAD (Surviving Spouses Against Deportation), I have
witnessed first-hand the tremendous anguish and now guarded
optimism on the part of the surviving spouses - who now have a
vehicle to remain in the United States with their U.S. citizen
children and the children's grandparents.  Bravo, for a job
selflessly and very well done. Justice has finally prevailed.
Lynne R. Newkofsky, Esq.                   New York, NY


(b) Dear Editor:
With regard to R. Heuman's letter (10/22/09 ID), the rambling,
convoluted article by J.R. Edwards attempting to use the Bible as
justification for restrictionista immigration policies, as
described in my (10/22/09 ID) letter (responding to Jim Roberts'
(10/21/09 ID) letter), appeared in a publication of one of the
hate supporting organizations mentioned in the Heuman letter,
namely Center for Immigration Studies. However, I am not sure it
would be a good idea to censor the hate mongers, as Mr. Neuman's
letter suggests should be done. Who would be left for immigration
supporters to debate with? Name Withheld's letter (10/22/ID)
reminds us that hate has terrible human consequences. Only laws
and procedures inspired by the wish to appease anti-immigrant
bigots could require the wife of a US Citizen and mother of two
lawful permanent resident children to wait for 14 months in
Mexico while a US consulate decides her fate, without any
assurance that her waiver application will be granted.
Immigration policy today is based, not on the real world human
consequences of pernicious US government licenses to persecute
with Orwellian names like "287(g)" and "E-Vilify" (my spelling),
but on the most cynical political Realpolitik of coldly
calculating how many Latino votes can be given up in order to
hold on to how many anti-immigrant white votes. Welcome to the
Brave New Restrictionista World of Barack Obama, who promised not
to scapegoat immigrants just around the time that Name Withheld's
wife filed for her still unresolved  waiver, and of DHS Secretary
Janet Napolitano, who as Arizona governor was to immigration what
former Alabama governor George Wallace was to civil rights, and
is showing no sign of changing her spots.
Roger Algase. Esq.                 New York, NY


(c) Dear Editor:
Pace Mr. Murray's letter (10/21/09 ID), but in some states
Americans will indeed do backbreaking work for $9.00 per hour,
but in states where those Americans work on the books and taxes
are as confiscatory as they are in New York or California, they
do not. Hence Mr. Murray's shocking experience with  "red blooded
Americans" in a Maine eatery (where I presume blue-green blooded
crustaceans no less American were being served). Milton Friedman
reluctantly came out against illegal immigration after deeming it
incompatible with the welfare state we are (by his lights) stuck
with. I suggest that just as some other economists viewed
corruption as a necessary evil insofar as it allowed economically
beneficial behavior that was otherwise proscribed in over-
regulated economies, so do illegal immigrants (or Americans
working off the books) make the job markets of otherwise failing
states like California (a far cry from the confident growing
California of my youth), Michigan or New York continue to wheeze
along instead of seizing and failing entirely. Better by far to
craft an immigration system that eliminates the helot status of
illegal immigrants without drawing in more. Some kind of
effective enforcement mechanism needs to balance any moves
towards mercy for those here deemed useful along with serious
streamlining and rationalization of procedures for future
immigrants. A just, efficient and clear system would go a long
way towards removing incentives to cross illegally, especially if
it privileges likely high performers. I weep to say that I have
not seen one proposed lately.
Honza Prchal, Esq.                 Birmingham, AL


(d) Dear Editor:
Peter G.'s letter (10/21/2009 ID) makes a very good point in
questioning what will happen with those given amnesty - will they
be able to petition their relatives? If Comprehensive Immigration
Reform (CIR - buzzword for Amnesty) is to work, with the benefits
must come restrictions. In 1986, Amnesty beneficiaries were
treated the same as everyone else. They should not have been,
because the onslaught of Relative Petitions buried our already
overburdened immigration procedural system. While CIR seems the
only way to resolve the out out-of control underground contingent
of undocumented, it must be carefully thought out. That won't
happen. But here is what to think about: (1) No benefits
conferred on any relative, ever, not even after receiving US
citizenship; (2) The sole qualifying factor is to show they have
paid the taxes, thereby establishing employment for at least one
year; (4) Pass a Criminal Background Check; (3) Handle CIR
candidates in a separate system that will not once again
overburden USCIS adjudications, physically or financially; (5)
Make it available to legal nonimmigrants; and (6) Make it simple.
But the last Amnesty was too complicated. CIR's proposals so far
have made it even more complicated. This should not be allowed to
happen. It should be based on good things they have done, i.e.
worked for at least one year and paid taxes; this would give them
three points. Of course, that leaves out many illegals. What to
do with them? Give the ones physically present in the US on a
specific date a non-immigrant employment visa and make them work
and pay taxes for three years to earn three points toward
permanent residence. Make the documentation simple. Now, isn't
that simple? Now, let's see how the government can muck it up
with their bureaucracy.
David D. Murray, Esq.                 Newport Beach, CA


(e) Dear Editor:
My husband and brother are both small business owners who
actively hire Mexican workers. There are very specific reasons
for this, but mainly it is because they want to work.  When we go
to the labor pool looking for workers, the Americans want to
know, what will they be doing and for how long and how much will
it pay and... then they have to think about it.  You ask a
Mexican if he wants to work and he says "si".  There is no debate
about hours or wages or the job and what they will or won't do.
Unfortunately because of this many of these workers can be taken
advantage of.  Something we are careful not to do and now we have
a reputation of being a good employer and people come to us
looking for work.  These guys aren't stealing work, they are just
willing to do the work Americans won't do.  They also work hard
and work longer than anyone I have seen and do so without
complaint. They want to make money to send it home, and
eventually to go home, to live their lives there.  But over the
last few years knowing they can't cross the border, they bring
their families here.  We have created this immigration problem by
thinking that the use of force is the solution. Force is never a
solution and maybe if we were all better neighbors, not just
country to country, but also individual to individual, and
display a little more tolerance, we would not have these
problems.  I am an American just out of luck, I was born on the
right side of the border.  And the same applies to most
Americans, in that we have not had to do anything to earn the
rights associated with being American.
Name Withheld


(f) Dear Editor:
It gives me great pleasure to be able to write this letter,
however the situation is not a happy one, there are a lot of
children in this country that listed as derivative beneficiary on
their parents application for permanent residence, and after
these children waited so long with their parents to obtain their
GC, and go through the whole application process, and paying all
the required fees including the 245i 1000 penalty fee, are being
denied, and the wicked part of this is immigration are not
following the retention rule by allowing the parents to file a
new application and retain the old priority date, instead they
are treating these children like criminals, and leaving them out
in the cold. This must be address and these children must be able
to retain their priority date and receive their green card.
Camelanikki


(g) Dear Editor:
As always, David Murray's letter's comments (10/21/09 ID) are
well taken. Thanks for the offer, but I had the "pleasure" of
spending my first 5 years with the Border Patrol in El Centro,
CA, and about 22 more years with the Patrol in Vermont and Maine.
No one can be sure that a person is here illegally without
talking to them, but after enough years dealing with the problem
you do develop a "feel" for such things. Yes, there are jobs that
Americans don't want to do, but illegal labor could be reduced if
conditions and pay were better. It might cost a few pennies more
for produce, but I believe a majority of Americans would pay it
to see the immigration laws enforced. Also, many agricultural
jobs might be mechanized if there wasn't such a pool of illegal
labor. Personally, I'd have no problem with giving credit to
aliens who worked here as non-immigrants, as long as they were
well screened. As we should have learned, from the 1986 amnesty,
the fraud rate in such programs is very high. I also believe
that, like it or not, there'll be some form of legalization
(limited, I hope) if we have any chance of real immigration
"reform". Before we decide to do it, though, we have secure our
borders and make sure that employer sanctions are enforced.
John F.                 Baileyville, ME


(h) Dear Editor:
I sympathize with the frustration in Linda Cogill's letters
(10/21/09 ID) over the antiquated laws, cumbersome procedures and
infuriating delays that made her wait so long for her green card
and are making her wait another five years to apply to become a
US citizen. But bashing illegals will only make her situation
worse. Her flawed assumption is that if there is less focus on
trying to deal with illegal immigration, there will be more
resources available to try to make legal immigration work better
for people like herself who are trying to follow the law. The
problem with this Pollyanna way of thinking is that it assumes
that the people who are shouting the loudest for a crackdown on
illegals are interested in helping people immigrate legally. But,
with a very few commendable exceptions, the people who are
calling for vigorous enforcement of the laws against illegals are
also against making it easier for legal immigrants. Just read Jim
Roberts' letters, check out the FAIR or Center for Immigration
Studies websites or turn on Lou Dobbs. Legal and illegal
immigration are two sides of the same coin. By giving aid and
comfort to those who despise people who are unable to obtain
legal visas, her letters are hurting the cause of people who,
like herself, have had to wait so long to become legal
immigrants. The same people who want to kick out Jorge Gonzales
(a made-up name), who came in illegally from Mexico yesterday,
would be just as happy to send legal immigrants back to their
native country tomorrow (unless they happens to be white, of
course).
RCH


(i) Dear Editor:
In the Article and Letters of (10/22/09 ID), if there is
confusion, it is with the R. Algase letter and not the JRE
article which plainly states that the broad purpose of the well
reasoned study is to "examine the immigration issue from the
perspective of biblical Christianity" and not to find "authority
in the Bible for opposing amnesty" or claiming "to be putting God
in charge of our immigration policy". Also, enforcing entry laws
is not because of "dealing shrewdly"--It's about those who break
them. But now that the RA letter is a Bible enthusiast, Isaiah 5
tells us about limiting populations and more. It is
restrictionist for the R. Heuman letter to urge ID not to run
other valid views on entry as these things affect all of US. It
is entry that should be restricted, not free speech, contrary to
the erroneous conclusions of B. Akers's article (b) "Yearning To
Breathe Free: The Constitution Is Clear On Immigration" where it
is clear from Article 1, Sec. 9 that government can regulate
entry as "shall think proper to admit". Libertarians are
idealists who take Freedom to impractical extremes which
infringes on other's rights. To allow SPLC to identify "hate"
groups is like the radical Brown Beret calling the patriot
Minutemen terrorists. One has to wonder if the R. Yang letter has
the same policies it urges for US regarding sharing his residence
out of "love" and advocating free entry for all and why would
there be walls, fences or lot boundaries? These and the letter's
ideas on trade are globalist in nature which enrich profiteers,
enslaves workers and impoverishes nations. We need more real
Americans as Theodore Roosevelt said in his classic 1915 speech
[Google to read] "Hyphenated Americanism".
Jim Roberts


(j) Dear Editor:
Regarding Jim Roberts letter (10/21/09 ID) Chinese Exclusion Act
and likewise apartheid laws were enacted nothing but to satisfy
selfish , shameless and racist descendants of immigrants who
think they're as the true owners of the land and they didn't want
and have to compete with others just because their "birth right"
in America. California, New Mexico and other parts of USA were
indeed the lands of the true native brown skin people of America
not of descendants of white illegal Caucasian trespassers from
Europe whom annexed and stole their lands and properties. I
apologize if I offend anybody, but this is the fact of our dark
past history. It's absurd, outrageous and ridiculous. And today,
the Chinese and other foreigners don't have to set foot on US
soil to compete with Americans. Businesses move to those
countries bring American jobs to them instead. What we can do as
Americans then? Empower ourselves, equip ourselves with better
skills, education and plus values instead whining and cursing on
our competitors and become ranting xenophobes here, and blaming
all of our problems on others except looking at the mirror first.
Consumers love cheaper products and services and more will
welcome competition and choices and there are nothing wrong for
any businesses trying to cut costs and pass the savings to their
loyal consumers. If businesses are greedy for more profits by
exploiting cheaper labor, what about consumers who buy their
products and get the savings too? The hypocrisy of xenophobes
here is unbelievable, I have suggestion for all of  them, stop
buying imports, buying fresh foods or groceries and eating out on
restaurants if they  hate foreigners who "steal" their jobs. Do
what you preach buy made in USA consistently and be happy to pay
extra price without any complaint to support our fellow
Americans.
Robert Yang
