Which Way Home

As the US continues to build a wall between itself and Mexico,
"Which Way Home" shows the personal side of immigration through
the  eyes of children who face harrowing dangers with enormous
courage and resourcefulness as they endeavor to make it to the
US. The HBO documentary follows several unaccompanied child
migrants as they journey through Mexico en route to the U.S. on a
freight train called "The Beast." The film premieres on Monday,
August 24, 2009. For more information, see here.

6.  Headlines

(a) Hurdles Shown in Detention Reform

But in its details, it underscores the daunting challenge facing
the Obama administration as it tries to improve detention
conditions, starting with greater oversight of places like Eloy.

(b) Deporting American Citizens: ICE's Mexican-izing of Mark

ICE, however, maintained the delusion that the inconsistent and,
frankly, goofy statement of Mark's alienage was authentic and
claimed that the more credible and easily verifiable evidence of
his US citizenship was false.

(c) Cuomo Shuts Immigration Aid Firms He Accuses Of Fraud

New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo announced yesterday
he halted the operation of three firms - two on Long Island and
one in New York City - that he said defrauded clients who were

(a) Dear Editor:
Regarding the Letters (8/21/09 ID), the race neutral, reasoned,
America first letter of D. Murray stands out in stark contrast to
the myopic, race baiting, America last letters of R. Algase and
E.S.F., both of which pull out the abused and tired race card
along with typical inflammatory and false labels.  Open border
apologists squeal like the porkers they are when the public
demands tighter controls and limits to entry. The letters would
have a reason to squeal if we sentenced border crossers to 12
years in prison as North Korea does or fired heavy rounds at
Muslim laden boats as Italy does. Apparently, it is not enough
that we have more migrants that the rest of the world combined
and educate, medicate and tolerate excessive numbers of illegals
many of whom return the favors by running drugs, bringing more
illegals, stealing identities, falsifying paperwork, filling our
welfare programs, crowding our space and highways, consume scarce
resources meant for citizens, and killing and maiming others.
The comments of DMM could not be more correct ( 8/20/09 ID) not
only in the letters cautionary conclusions but in the need for
"drastic and effective brakes" upon past and present lax entry
policies which would preclude any form of amnesty to law
breakers. It is absurd and irresponsible to advocate that our
entry policies should be more efficient and convenient in order
that non-citizens can migrate without limits or beyond acceptable
ones as determined by US citizens, not special or ethnic
