1.  COMMENT


Police Foundation


The Police Foundation's report "The Role of Local Police:
Striking a Balance Between Immigration Enforcement and Civil
Liberties" is the culmination of a national effort to bring
together law enforcement leaders, public officials, scholars, and
community stakeholders to collaboratively examine the
implications of local law enforcement of immigration laws by
reviewing practices, constitutional issues, and economic factors.
The report concludes among other things "The costs of the 287(g)
program outweigh the benefits." For the 256-page report, see
here.

We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by

6.  Headlines


(a) New Burden Of Identity Proof For Pa. Drivers


Pennsylvania law requires applicants to prove "legal presence" in
the state before they can obtain a license or ID card. But in
some cases, proof other than Social Security numbers can be
accepted.


(b) NRA Goes To Bat For Illegal Alien Coke Dealers


The GOP, which is against "criminaliens" and "Mexicans" swarming
across our Southern border, is backing a convicted drug dealing
illegal alien and thus opposing law enforcement.


(c) AZ Gov. Resumes Budget Talks; Illegal Immigration Avoided


Interestingly, there is no mention of curtailing the cost of
illegal immigration in any state budget plan.


(d) Immigration Services Files WARN Notice With Florida State


Perot Systems, which operates four U.S. Department of Homeland

http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/archives.shtm


(a) Dear Editor:
Congratulations to Reverend Robert McDonald and those who stand
with him (07/28/09 ID) in having the courage to initiate long
overdue steps to recall Arizona's favorite racist psychopathic
bully, Sheriff Joe Arpaio (07/23/09 Comment). It is good to know
that there are still some decent Americans who have the guts to
stand up against hatred and intolerance, whether wrapped in the
fig leaf of supposed concern about the environment and
"overpopulation", or whether masquerading as ''law enforcement".
I would rather read the letters of Jim Roberts, which at least
are honest in their wish to turn the entire US into a whites only
"gated community" than some other letters which indignantly deny
having even the slightest taint of racial prejudice, while
insisting that the only way we can avoid environmental, economic,
"cultural" or whatever other kind of Armageddon the writers in
question see in their fevered imaginations is to shut the gates
to America firmly against brown people.
Roger Algase, Esq.                New York, NY


(b) Dear Editor:
I am writing to praise the article written by Mark E. Nerenberg
(07/28/09 ID). I totally agree with the Article's analysis of the
current labor certification system. Especially in times of high
unemployment, it is cruel to desperate American workers to
advertise for jobs that do not exist. I have been practicing
immigration law for the past 32 years, and I have never had a
case where a U.S. worker was employed based on a labor
certification ad. I believe the immigration bar should advocate
for a change in the process to return to the prior system which
had the Labor Department determine if there is a labor shortage
for a particular position in a given geographic area. That system
would be infinitely better than the current one.
Robert N. Gottfried, Esq.                 New York, NY

    Most politicians are indoctrinated with tunnel vision, they only see campaign contributions and inventing a long drawn out career. They seem to be completely isolated from the American people, whether US workers, senior citizens or homeless veterans are ignored. To me catering to the 20 plus illegal immigrants seem to be more important to the status quo in Washington, than following the oath of allegiance to our nation. Right now the US population is up in arms, because the Democrats have authored a bill to give free government health care, to foreign nationals and their families. Can anybody tell me why American families are forced by law, to pay for people of other countries? We should have health care, but it should be the individual choice?

    You either paid your premiums, co-pays and deductibles, to the giant insurance corporations and hoped they didn't kill of their service, if they suddenly decided you were a risk. Or you tried a new avenue available to many Europeans, that of a government health insurance plan? YOU! Should choose? What's best for your family? Not some politician who is a stockholder in one of those wealthy insurance giants? Not only have citizens and legal residents been the prey of private medical care providers for decades, with some unable to afford the crippling premiums. That our hard earned dollars are whisked away in taxes to pay for a large bowlful of benefits, including free health care, for just anybody who can slip past government officials, at our border, ports or overstaying a tourist visa.

    In Europe this obscene travesty of immigration laws, may cause a collapse of governments in the near future. Activists like me see the destruction of our culture and irreversible OVERPOPULATION. Instead of these calculated cash going to support foreign national families, it should be going to refurbish our highways, bridges and tunnels. Inside America our infrastructure is falling apart. Instead of nation building, we should us our money to stabilize our own economy. Early immigrants gave much to this America, whereas the last ten years have eroded our welfare safety net to our own people. They did not come here to bleed America dry as they do today. Crime Yes! But not on the ever increasing scale, as it does today.

    If the Democratic leadership move forward with Immigration Reform or AMNESTY, American will further hemorrhage from those who are already here, and they in turn sponsoring their families, but the open door welcome for the following hordes sitting patiently in foreign lands? Trillions of dollars are on the line, because of the numerous federal mandates on taxpayers.

    The only power Americans have is the vote and even that is been compromised? As one voice we must pressure our Senators and Representatives, to empower E-Verify as part of the Save Act. 202-224-3121 Our concentrated effort of millions of phone calls, is making these subservient lawmakers to corporate welfare very nervous. They like their jobs, their exceptional health care and the benefits that go with it? Support for the bi-partisan SAVE Act, which will expand E-Verify and protect American Workers! We must focus on the zenith to this major problem-the jobs that attract illegal aliens. It would phase in a requirement for every employer to use the electronic E-Verify system. Remember also that the US chamber of Commerce, the ACLU, the Council of Foreign Relations are not friends of the ordinary American Worker, as they are anti-Sovereignty, Open border and are sustained by corporate grant givers, to destroy any Immigration Enforcement laws.

    DEMAND NO AMNESTY! NO FAMILY UNIFICATION KNOWN AS CHAIN MIGRATION! NO MORE HEALTH CARE OR ANY OTHER KIND OF BENEFITS FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. CLOSE THE BORDER AND ENFORCE THE FENCE WITH THE NATIONAL GUARD! GOOGLE--NUMBERSUSA, AMERICANPATROL for honest answers.

    There is a hue development in the Canadian Immigration policy. Things have changed. This is not anymore the bright Immigration country. Now only qualified persons are accepted under a heavy evaluation process.
