The Next 9 11

As another 9/11 anniversary approaches, most Americans are
thankful that Al Qaeda has not struck again (in no small part due
to members of our armed forces overseas who are keeping Mr. Bin
Laden and his ilk in their caves). But there is a small group of
fanatics in America who are eagerly awaiting the next 9/11: the
anti-immigrationists. When and if another terrible calamity is
visited on America, the antis are confident that they can close
the borders indefinitely, and put a total stop to immigration for
a generation or more, much as the National Origin Quota Acts of
1921/1924 did. We believe that contingency plans to this effect
were made by the Bush administration, and that these will be
rolled out by whatever administration happens to be around when
the opportunity is right.

Furthermore, the anti-immigrationists will then unfairly dump the
blame on USCIS officials or Consular officials at DOS, by
pretending that it is humanly possible to weed out one terrorist
from a million immigration benefit applications. Most of the
blame should instead justly lie with those within our government
who deal with foreign intelligence - the decision by the current
CIA Director to disband the unit responsible for killing
terrorists overseas is an example of where blame may validly be
assigned, if indeed events similar to 9/11 are repeated. In the
rush of emotions following a catastrophe, the antis will try to
focus America on immigrants instead of the real culprits, and
propose the broad brush solution of a total black-out of all
immigration and internment camps for immigrants within America.
This is not just speculation, this is exactly what America did in
the past, so the antis have historical precedent.

Even something far, far short of 9/11 will cause the antis to go
on the offensive, perhaps to a receptive American public. Those
in power in the halls of Congress should remember that good times
do not last for ever. Their power is limited, and their ability
to effect change is likewise limited, so they need to hurry and
enact their agenda soon. Fortunately, the basic principles behind
comprehensive immigration reform have bipartisan support, unlike
health care reform where the Republicans are united in
opposition. Perhaps the operating principle used by leaders of
the Democratic Party - that enacting the health bill will clear
the path for the immigration bill - is wrong. Perhaps the reverse
may be the case - moving forward on the immigration bill may
clear the path for other Democratic priorities. The Democrats
have a chance at making history - it is up to them to take it or
blow it. The ball is squarely in Congress's court.

6.* Headlines

(b) Immigration Judges Struggling

herself listening to a wrenching tale of an immigrant seeking
asylum, fearing everything from torture to death if returned to

(c) Report Urges More Thorough ICE Detention Records

Enforcement keeps dangerous immigrants in custody while operating

(a) Dear Editor:
My apologies to K.W.E. (09/10/09 ID) and any other Democrat
offended by my arguably (and there is apparently an argument
about it - c.f. the Iraq war as opposed to the Iraqi war) poor
grammar. I did not mean to insult Democrats by calling their
party the Democrat party. Feel free to call mine the Republican,
or even the Republic party. Like most Republicans, I very likely
will not care any more than I do when people stumble over my
name. I shall very likely slip into the usage again, but, not
being a McCarthyite, I had no idea why it would be insulting and
a Google search reveals that it sounds a lot like "rat" is the
reason cited as to why many do find it insulting, though that
sounds remarkably kindergartenish and is only asserted by those
claiming offense, not as a rationale by those aware of giving it. reveals that many parties are officially called the
"Democrat Party", but our governing party is apparently not. This
is so despite the use of the term to describe Democrats by the
press from 1890 to the present and by modern opponents of the
Democratic Party as diverse as Eisenhower and Harold Staasen as
well as McCarthy. As God is my witness, I did not mean it to be
insulting and won't when I use it in the future, which, by force
of habit, I certainly shall.
Honza Prchal, Esq.**************** Birmingham, AL

(b) Dear Editor:
E-Verify, plus the federal regulation requiring its use among
federal contractors, will prove once and for all that immigration
enforcement will work if it is pointed at the employers who hire
illegal workers.* I don't agree with a lot of Obama policies, but
I do agree with two of his immigration priorities:* weed out
illegal aliens locked up in jails and prevent employers from
easily hiring illegal workers.* It couldn't come at a better
time, either, with unemployment at 9.7% and rising.
