(a) Dear Editor:
Rachel Heuman's letter (10/1/09 ID) asks why CIS/FAIR has numbers
"out of sync" with "even right wing think tanks, the CATO and
Goldwater Institutes". One reason is that CATO and the Goldwater
Institutes are heavily libertarian and pro-immigration. That'd be
like asking why the writers and editors of the Wall Street
Journal are "out of sync" with more anti-immigration sources on
the right. Immigration is even less a clean right left divide
than most American debates. Mr. Yang's letter need not have
reached back to the 7th Century for pedophiles claiming religious
justification. David Koresh and Brian David Mitchel (the man who
kidnapped Elizabeth Smart). Other mass rapists closer to Mr.
Yang's letter's background have tended to claim absolution or
entitlement for their crimes from enlightened progress, most
notoriously world-class serial rapist and the world's most
prolific killer of other human beings Mao Zhe****. Not everyone
who references natural law and disagrees with Mr. Yang's letter
deserved to be grouped with rapist religious fanatics, just as
American progressives or secularists mostly have little to answer
for the depredations of the Chinese Communist Party or their
formerly Leninist rivals the Kuomintang (or less prolific anti-
religious killers like the Nazis). Donald Russell's letter
(09/30/09 ID) about UCIS updates by text message is so
reminiscent of my experience with its predecessor that I laughed
so hard I cried. On the one hand, the poor overburdened
bureaucrats are trying, God bless them, to be somewhat responsive
to people under a good deal of pressure and who depend upon their
whims. On the other, one is reminded that both snafu and fubar
were terms that originated in government work.

(b) Dear Editor:
The 10/1/09 ID letters display a narrow, one-dimensional thinking
except possibly (d) by D. Russell. It is amazing that the R.
Algase letter would once again destroy the promise of a hiatus as
well as credibility with the ignorant statement that my letter of
10/30/09 ID, "does not seem to be aware that America is governed
by man-made law, not divine law or natural law." The RA letter
can demonstrate one of the "natural" laws by which we are bound -
It's called the law of gravity. There are also "Divine" or moral
laws that govern US or should. While the RA letter may choose to
be an atheist, Divinity and our Christian founding fathers have
given US the freedom of speech, belief, and to make laws, even to
deny Divinity, all of which we sooner or later will be held
responsible (I Cor.3:8-20). The RA and R. Yang letters must have
missed the part of my letter that allowed that the "context" of
illegality could be changed, but not the fact of an illegal act.
I even agreed that "man-made laws" could be changed, even if
unwisely, for which we would bear the consequences. It is the RA
letter that is unawares and "confused". The R. Yang letters would
be better understood if more time was spent learning English and
less time ranting about former history. The R. Heuman letter may
demonize responsible entry groups, but this does not change the
realities of their positions. Citing the SPLC for any kind of
authority destroys the letters credibility. The SPLC should be
the number one entry on their own "hate" list. They never mention
the real racist hate groups such as La Raza, the Brown Berets and
Jim Roberts

(c) Dear Editor:
Today is proclaimed, by the president of the US, to be National
Family Day. The US government has done more to harm families
through antiquated immigration laws and high immigration fees,
then you can possible imagine. I am a USC; I worked for more than
forty years and served four years of honorable US military
service. I live in Guatemala by choice.* I am married to a
Guatemalan and we have three children, one of which is a US
citizen, two which are not. We own our home in Guatemala and it
is paid for, we built it ourselves and we live comfortably.
Except for freedom of travel, if I want to have US passports or
visas for my wife and children to visit the US we will have to
sell the house and immigrate to the US. We will have to live
there until such time has expired for my wife and children to
become US citizens. We don't want to live in the US, we can't
afford it, and the government doesn't want us either. We do want
the freedom that was guaranteed to me as a US citizen and for
service to my country. I want the freedom of choice where to live
and raise my family in relative peace. My wife has a visitor's
visa for the US, now expired, we visited relatives in the US and
returned to Guatemala as agreed and this was before we were
married. There are many other non-citizens that would do the same
if the opportunity existed. Think what that could do for the
economy. This is now* impossible. My advice to the president,
make sensible new laws and sensible immigration reform, with the
sensible human rights that our constitution guarantees. Give
immigration back to INS and send homeland insecurity to
Afghanistan to fight terrorists.

    We are on the verge of a major breakthrough with the illegal immigration deterrent program E-Verify. Washington has extended E-Verify to the end of October, but that is not enough for the 10 million plus jobless American workers. The stamp of approval of E-Verify has been recognized by the hundreds of thousands, or perchance millions of citizens and legal employees whose innumerable numbers have been disenfranchised by illegal alien labor. An apparel firm was raided by ICE and 1800 workers who are illegal have been fired, unless they can be positively accepted as having the right legal status? Unbelievable! Now without further adieu, we must lambaste the politicians until they make E-Verify permanent? It should be placed on the peak list of interior enforcement tools, and everybody who gets a pay check should be verified as part of the legal workforce.

    A huge number of suspected open border players, thought the courts would kill it as unconstitutional, or at least delay it? An amendment was presented by Sen. David Vitter that prevents any further delays in the implementation of the Social Security Administration's No-Match-letter program. An amendment was also offered by Sen. Jeff Sessions that requires a permanent re-authorization of the application. The usual culprits tried to table the Sen. Sessions E-Verify amendment, but the motion failed and eventually passed. We have dubious decision makers in DC, who are not looking-out for the man/women in the street? This became very blatantly obvious in the stimulus bill, when no language omitted illegal workers from gaining at least 300.000 jobs in construction and other industries. The 247 G law is another successful police program, to identify illegal immigrants on the streets of our communities and highways. This law could be on the chopping block, as well as the ICE raids on pariah businesses.

    Both California and Nevada's lawmakers have a high percentage of illegal alien populace, so they are indebted not to enforce immigration laws. We as voters must transfer our frustration and anger to those who represent us at 202-224-3121. A continuous barrage of irate voters has upset the politician's applecart in their offices, demanding change? You will only discover the true patriotic American politicians by going to and examining their immigration grades at NUMBERSUSA, JUDICIAL WATCH & for OVERPOPULATION statistics CAPSWEB. If we hesitate about these issues, all is lost, and the anti-sovereignty groups will take away our jobs, freedoms. If you really want to view the absolute appalling state our roads, bridges, dams and drinking water structure, watch "The Crumbling of America." The History channel has been illuminating the complete and utter indifference, while we financially support the world, wars and illegal immigrants.
