Immigration In Olympics

The New York Times
raises the question as to whether US immigration policies played
a role in Chicago's loss of the 2016 Olympic games to Rio. "Among
the toughest questions posed to the Chicago bid team this week in
Copenhagen was one that raised the issue of what kind of welcome
foreigners would get from airport officials when they arrived in
this country to attend the Games. Syed Shahid Ali, an I.O.C.
member from Pakistan, in the question-and-answer session
following Chicago's official presentation, pointed out that
entering the United States can be "a rather harrowing

(a) Dear Editor:
In response to Mr. Slatton's letter (10/05/09 ID) and its
statement that "The immigration enforcement policies of the US
are showing the world alot that is ugly about America." - I
suggest doing a sampling of the immigrant experience in Mexico,
Switzerland, South Africa or most of the rest of the rest of the
world. Perhaps one could sit in an Australian detention camp for
Afghan immigrants in that nation's Western Desert or talk to the
grandchildren of naturalized immigrants to Switzerland still
referred to by their comaptirots as foreigners and wonder at the
supposed evils of the United States. Most likley, one would get
an appreciative hearing from locals totally devoid of irony. Our
immigration policies are dysfuntional and far too often unjust,
but with the exception of Canada, which has its own problems, we
compare pretty favorably to most of the civilized world, much
less the nastier bits that are home to most of the planet's
population. Throughout most of the world America baiting has
replaced Jew baiting and British empire baiting among those
yearing to seem cosmopolitan and those whose own societies make
the Untied State's worst pockets of corruption or squalor look
mighty tempting in comparison. I am remarkably unimpressed by the
opinion of "the world" on this topic in particular. My family has
left several differnt countries to get here, and as irritating as
the US immigration system has been in the last five decades (this
despite our supposedly privileged status as young white
professionals), we've all seen a lot worse and heard of even
worse than that from others who managed to flee here.
Honza Prchal, Esq.                 Birmingham, AL

(b) Dear Editor:
I have just a comment. I think that before President Obama start
legalizing the illegal aliens, he should first approve the
pending GCs of nurses, PTs, etc. who are working here legally.
