Legislators Who Hit And Shoot People

A new Southern Poverty Law Center report
details the shocking facts in Suffolk County, New York, where
local law enforcement and local politicians are apparently trying
to out-Hitler each other on the issue of immigration. The report
says: "Fueling the fire are many of the very people who are
charged with protecting the residents of Suffolk County - local
politicians and law enforcement officials. At one point, one
county legislator said that if he saw an influx of Latino day
laborers in his town, "we'll be out with baseball bats." Another
said that if Latino workers were to gather in a local
neighborhood, "I would load my gun and start shooting, period.""
When local politicians make threats of violence, it is high time
for Congress to step in and address the immigration issue head
on. It is Congress's duty to make immigration policy for the
country. Once CIR is on the books as a statute, the Suffolk
County terrorizers of immigrants will be shut up for good. Until
then, the Congressional leadership (all Democrats at this time)
is directly and deliberately responsible for permitting the
situation to reach this deplorable state. Enough with the delays,
already! Does any one still believe that health care and climate
change are less controversial than immigration? We hope the
appropriate Congressional committees will begin mark up on CIR

(a) Dear Editor:
From watching the trailer of "Sin Nombre" (09/03/09 ID comment),
reading some reviews and watching a YouTube clip by the
producer/director, Cary Fukunaga, I understand why the film won
at Sundance. It has everything a film needs to tell a good story.
There is a combination of fantasy, reality, cruetly, kindness,
compassion, violence, intrigue, justice, injustice and a quest
for a better life by young good looking people with whom the
audience is sure to fall in love. Who can argue with a plot like
that? In this film, there are those to love and those to hate,
human emotion at its highest. One commenter on YouTube said, "I
loved how this film raised awareness for? people like those
portrayed in the film, whose struggle is often forgotten about...
it was a really good movie too." Yes, it appears to be a
"really good movie," but what message should Americans take away
after seeing the film? Is it that since people have traveled a
long and arduous journey seeking a "better life" in the US, they
should be welcomed at the border and given Green Cards? I doubt
that. There is injustice and oppression worldwide, the US
included, everyone who reads the newspaper knows that. So what is
the message in "Sin Nombre", other than that, ". ... it was a
really good movie too."?* I see nothing more than great
entertainment here, and perhaps a chance to thank my lucky stars
that, like Bruce Springsteen, I was Born In The USA. But there is
nothing in the film that contributes to the resolution of
America's burgeoning immigration crisis and nothing that will
guide the passage of the type of immigration legislation America
David D. Murray, Esq.**************** Newport Beach, CA

(b) Dear Editor:
Alan Greenspan, in his testimony before a Senate immigration
committee chaired by Senator Charles Schumer, tried to justify
the H-1B program by saying that wages of American professional
workers (a "privileged elite") are too high and need to be
lowered by exposure to more foreign competition. This argument is
about as likely to convince immigration opponents to support
increasing H-1B quotas as an argument that we need more "death
panels" would be to convince seniors to support health care
reform. With friends like Alan Greenspan, immigration supporters
don't need any enemies. What is the real benefit of H-1B? It is
that attracting skilled foreign workers helps American companies
compete in the global marketplace and boosts our economy,
creating more jobs and higher salaries for everyone. How could
Senator Schumer, who is supposed to be taking the lead on
immigration reform, have possibly picked someone like this for
his start-off witness? Who will be his next "pro-immigrant"
witness? Lou Dobbs? Tom Tancredo? Sheriff Joe Arpaio?
V. L. Corazon

(c) Dear Editor:
Everyone, well almost everyone except the antis (what is the
difference between the antis and the neonazis?), has been talking
about enforcement only. Has anyone seen the makeup of the
hierachy of ICE lately? God bless America.
