The Antis

130 pro-immigration advocates,0824-obama.shtm
were recently invited to the White House for a meeting with
Secretary Napolitano, where President Obama made a surprise,
albeit brief, appearance. The anti-immigrationists were not
invited. NumbersUSA, of the group of non-invitees, protest that
they are not demagogues,
and that they want to talk to Mr. Obama. To no one's surprise,
Mr. Obama is not going to pick up the phone to call the antis.
The reason is that the anti-immigrationists are at the cutting
edge of those opposing the current administration. And here we
use the term "cutting edge" pejoratively (we do not suggest that
it is politically improper to oppose a President, only that the
form of opposition selected by the antis is improper). When Mr.
Obama visited New Hampshire earlier this month to promote health
care reform, a protestor was videotaped saying "send [illegal
immigrants] home with a bullet in the head".
The Congressional allies of the anti-immigrationists are no
better. A few weeks ago, Rep. John Campbell, Republican of
California, an anti-immigrationist with a B+ rating from
NumbersUSA, had a hard time admitting that Mr. Obama was born in
The unifying theme behind the anti-immigrationists and the anti-
Obamites is the same - racism.  A column
in the Nebraska newspaper the Omaha World-Herald describes it
thus: "the clear purpose of birther propaganda is not to win a
majority by democratic means but to drive a minority of a
minority into turmoil and even violence - as indicated by their
behavior at this month's congressional town-hall meetings." If
and when the anti-immigrationists resort to the violence that
some of them are threatening, we suggest a simple solution.
Deport them. Through expedited removal.

(a) Strategy For Silencing Sheriff Joe Arpaio Grows Clearer

A recent story reveals the strategy being employed by the
opponents of Joe Arpaio to silence the popular Maricopa County

(b) Where Immigration Reform Stands Without Kennedy

While Democrats in Congress are hoping to push health care reform
forward in honor of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, the senator's
death serves as a reminder that Congress and President Obama have
substantial work to do to accomplish another of Kennedy's lifelong
causes: immigration reform.

(c) Immigration Distrust On Health Bill

Nothing illustrates America's distrust of Congress quite like the
illegal immigrant provision of the House health care bill, HR 3200.

(d) An Immigration Success Story

Often lost in the immigration debate is appreciation for success
stories like our family's.

(a) Dear Editor:
Normally, I do not like to bicker or self-justify in ID letters,
but when my leters are misquoted and/or misinterpreted three
times by letter writers in one day, that's my limit - see letters
of Jim Roberts, Pangga Philippines and Kelly, Omaha, NE (08/28/09
ID). Jim Roberts' letter once again distorts and twists what
letters say, this time Roger Algase's and mine (08/27/09 ID).
Nothing in my letter "laments" a "contrived "Health Care" crises.
I do not believe the Obama Health Care Proposal "is more about
control of lives and money than health," as the Roberts letter
claims. Evidently, Mr. Roberts' letters continue to support right
wing reactionary discrimination, immigration restrictionist
ranting and justification for discrimination on the basis of race
and ethnicity. But that is not my problem, but rather belongs to
the letter writer alone. Pangga Philippines claims the criteria
in my letter were met, but the "annulment" was not properly
attended by the Consular Officer. Most likely the Consular
Officer found that the annulment suspiciously deficient. To my
knowledge, there is no requirement that a Consular Officer issue
an RFE as does USCIS in adjudicating the I-130.  With the
evidence examined by the Consular Officer being interpreted with
his/her discretion based on "local knowledge," he/she gets a
second bite at the apple. It is well known an annulment can be
obtained in the Philippines, just by paying a few pesos to the
proper authority, with no actual basis in fact. Finally, the
Kelly, Omaha, NE letter states that my letter  implies that the
free market "works well in the arena of health care." I said no
such thing. In fact, I do not believe the current system of HMO
bureaucracy works well at all, nor do I believe any government-
run health care system will work any better.
David D. Murray, Esq.  Newport Beach, CA

(b) Dear Editor:
The R. Gittelson's article, "Remembering Ted Kennedy" (8/28/09
ID) only reinforces that TK's eulogy should be, "a lyin liberal"
in the Senate, not the "liberal lion". With the article's reprint
of TK's April, 2006 speech supporting CIR, he matchs if not
exceeds the falsehoods made about the 1965 Img. Act fiasco. To
Wit:  1.) We are not so much a "nation of immigrants" as we are a
nation of Americans, most of whom were born here and limited
entry allows assimilation to maintain this core fabric. 2.)
Illegals are all hard working folks and not criminals. 3.) The
number of illegals here is quoted at 11 million when it is at
least double that and likely triple. 4.) TK maintains that we
have tried enforcement and it has failed when only token actions
have been taken. 5.) It would cost 240 billion to deport 11
million illegals, an astounding $22,000 each when most deport
themselves without all the Liberal benefits. 6.) Promises more
border enforcement which already should have been done without
any other concessions  and has been promised before. 7.) Denied
that his CIR plan is amnesty when any scheme other than the
deportation the law calls for is exactly that. 8.) TK's cites all
kinds of designer polls showing support when the public actually
rejected this pig with lipstick. 9.) We are obligated to provide
a "path to citizenship" for illegals and a "guest worker program"
for businesses who continually need new "bodies on the
plantation". TK's CIR shamnesty benefits special and ethnic
interests, not most citizens. The only CIR that is needed is
serious enforcement, no benefits for illegals, deportations, no
birthright citizenships and to make illegal presence a felony.
The problem is not a lack of solutions, but a lack of will due to
wrong priorities and undue influences.
Jim Roberts

(c) Dear Editor:
To the surprise of no one, Jim Roberts' 8/28/09 letter has a very
long memory. His letter has obviously not forgotten, nor
forgiven, Senator Ted Kennedy's statement many years ago that the
1965 immigration reform law would not change America's "ethnic
mix". Keeping America lily white was indeed a big concern for far
too many Americans in the 1960's. Almost fifty years later, it is
evidently still the overriding concern, if not obsession, of Mr.
Roberts' letters. It is true that Senator Kennedy's statement
turned out to be wrong. So did Abraham Lincoln's promise not to
abolish slavery. Where would this country be if both statements
had turned out to be correct?

(d) Dear Editor:
I would agree with Mr. Algase's letter (see 8/27/09 ID) that the
overall impact of Senator Kennedy on immigration was pro-
immigrant so we won't judge him by a single action.  But, if my
memory serves me right, the Senator pulled a stealth move as part
of IMMACT 90 to insure that the Irish received 40% of the
diversity visas during the first few years of the program at the
expense of Mexico.  Last I checked, Ireland was very white and
part of Western Europe.  The diversity lottery at that time was
called the Irish program by many.
