Last Chance Dont Forget To Visit


We rely on you, our readers and friends currently in Vegas, to
come meet with us at our Open House. We have four NEW books,
which we hope you will check out. But more than anything else, we
hope to shake your hand, learn how you are doing, and share with
you what's going on in our neck of the woods. Vegas is full of
things to do, but we are relying on our friends to remember to
make a visit to our Open House part of your program. The Open
House is from 12noon to 10pm in Room 3701 (Level 3, Toscana) on
Thursday, Friday and Saturday (we are NOT in the exhibit hall).
We are raffling away many free immigration books for those of you
who fill out a short questionnaire giving us your views on
Immigration Daily. We are also offering a show-only discount for
all books published by us. And everyone gets a small box of
cookies from our youngest team-member, 6 year old Ms. Liberta
(named after the Statute of Liberty, but to see her, you must
come before bed-time!). Please come on over, and bring your
friends with you! Thank you!


We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by
writing to mailto:editor@ilw.com.

6.  Headlines


(a) Mohawks Continue Struggle At Border


The people of the Mohawk territory of Akwesasne remain steadfast
in their resistance of new border policies, maintaining a
peaceful protest site and steadily working to gain support from
other Indian nations and organizations.


(b) Study Finds Dairy Farms Rely Heavily on Foreign Workers


A comprehensive national survey of the employment practices of
America's dairy farmers found that they rely heavily on foreign-
born workers, the loss of which would cripple many farms and
create a ripple effect of job losses through the rural economy.


(c) Hispanic Activist Warns GOP On Sotomayor Response


But I think what this is reflective of is there's still a very
big split in the Republican Party over the direction they want to
take on immigration.


(d) The Battle Begins


The stated goals of the group would provide eventual citizenship
for the millions of undocumented individuals already here and
would seek additional visa permits to decrease undocumented
immigration as a whole.

(a) Dear Editor:
As for the birthright citizenship issue its interesting the only
"solution" offered by the anti-immigrant crowd or the
restrictionists is rescinding birthright citizenship for non-
citizen children. As is true for most other ideas the
restrictionists seem to conjure this too strays from the smaller
government less interference with personal lives the Barry
Goldwater Republicans were known for. We now have thanks to
Republicans the Military Industrial Complex, the Prison
Industrial Complex and the highest per capita incarceration rate
on the planet. We have made an industry out of locking people up
in the name of "rule of law". So what now we create a new
complex.. what should we call it the Bureau of Birthright
Citizenship? I believe in live and let live, the dignity of the
human being and the freedom our founders described, the right of
all men to self sustenance. The scrappy crew that made this
country great will disapear if restrictionists prevail. Suffice
to say, I left the party before the election like many of my
mixed status family members. This week the GOP talking heads had
a heyday with Sotomayers nomination. No one trounced on Cheny
when he made his comments, they agreed to disagree and understand
his perspective as a "mixed-status" family, yet Sotomayer was
called a racist. I don't think they will have even 11% come next
election if this keeps up.
Sergi Sheplov


(b) Dear Editor:
I know many will regard Attorney General Holder's reversal of
Compean as pro-immigrant, but I hope it will also be regarded as
pro-Bill of Rights, pro-decency and pro-fairness.  I'm not an
attorney and don't claim to be an expert in the arena of
jurisprudence, but the decision seems to me to be consistent with
the evolution of the way jurisprudence is practiced in this
country.
Gregory W. Christian   Washington, DC


(c) Dear Editor:
I would like to comment on ID's recent comments (06/05/09 ID).
Congratulations on your upcoming event in Las vegas.
