Your Daily Issue


Some readers occasionally experience trouble receiving
Immigration Daily. This can occur for different reasons. For
example, email programs (Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo, MSN, Gmail)
automatically send certain unknown emails into your junk email
folder because Internet Service Providers (ISPs) mistake it for
spam. Add Immigration Daily (editor@ilw.com) to your email
program contact list or whitelist and mark the email as "not
junk" to prevent future delivery of emails to the junk email
folder. Adding editor@ilw.com to your whitelist confirms that
messages sent by editor@ilw.com are desired and not spam. ISPs
also maintain whitelists which they use to filter email delivered
to their customers. You may need to contact your ISP directly if
difficulty receiving Immigration Daily continues so that ILW.COM
can be added to their whitelist of accepted domains.


Please note that ILW.COM stops your email delivery of Immigration
Daily only when you specifically instruct us to do so. If you
have not received your Immigration Daily email version, try
following these simple steps to ensure your Immigration Daily
delivery.

(a) Concern With Immigration Brings A New N-Word To American
Culture


Why, in our democratic-capitalist system, do some feel that a
legitimate business should not be able to tap this large group of
consumers?


(b) [CT] Bill Protects Children In Immigration Raids


A [Connecticut] bill recently introduced in the state Assembly
would create guidelines for schools to follow to protect children
from intimidation - and keep them in school - during immigration
raids, such as those that swept through Mendota two years ago.


(c) A Deportation Case Against A Dead Man


Seven months later, the federal government is still proceeding
with the deportation case against him.


(d) Despite Recession, Immigration Reforms Essential to Normalize
Labor Flows


Yet despite conditions, lawmakers should be preparing changes to
immigration policy in anticipation of the country's economic
revival, says former Homeland Security Secretary Michael
Chertoff, who had jurisdiction over immigration issues.

Readers can share comments, email: mailto:editor@ilw.com  (up to
300-words). Past correspondence is available in our archives
http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/archives.shtm


(a) Dear Editor:
Chia-Li Sung's letter (03/10/09 ID) has certainly struck a chord.
The fear of the disorderly criminal horde may be a persistent
feature of often exaggerated fears of large-scale immigration,
but it is based on real-world phenomena. Responding to Mr.
Murray's letter, simply making it easier to come in legally and
somehow shifting the balance towards more upper crusty types of
immigrants, or at least towards particularly skilled or hard-
working lower class folks would go a long way towards allaying
fears of people already here about immigrants by cutting down on
the criminality associated with hordes in near-mono-cultural
ghettoes and dubious immigration status both on the frontend (one
will have to have some wealth) and on the backend (the price of a
deportable offense will be very visible in terms of a lost
investment). My letter's suggestion of a straight fee would cut
much of the bureaucracy by allowing immigration authorities to
ask three types of questions to potential immigrants: Did you
pay? Do you carry a dangerously infectious disease or one that
American would end up having to pay for? Are you a threat to our
safety? A one-time fee would allow families to sponsor relatives
they care enough for the old fashioned way and it would eliminate
many of the silly market-distorting requirements of the investor
visa. As for the inevitable suggestion that merely buying
citizenship will be cheapening or will create a class of
indentured servants who will remain alienated from the county,
what we have now seems far worse. We are allegedly a capitalist
country with mercantile roots. Why not put a price tag and health
and safety test on citizenship too? It'll cut costs, cut crime
and increase transparency. I think it could also pass muster with
those who share Chia-Li Sung's letter's views.
Honza Prchal, Esq.  Birmingham, AL


(b) Dear Editor:
Fixing immigration was never on the Bush or her agenda, so it was
impossible for her to do anything about it (03/16/09 ID comment).
I never saw Ms. Rice trudge to the Hill and testify before any
committee; I never saw her enter the fray of discussion on the
subject; and, I never saw her make any proposals to fix it.  The
only thing that the Bush Administration did in its quest to stop
illegal immigration was to stop legal immigration.   Saying now
that she has regrets about the Bush administration not achieving
results, and her having done nothing to assist in immigration
reform, is disingenuous.
Phil Slaton  Poulsbo, WA


(c) Dear Editor:
My own deepest regret is that bright people like Condoleezza
Rice, on both sides of the political divide, continue to convince
themselves that true immigration reform is taking people "from
the shadows" a phrase that has synonymity with "comprehensive
immigration reform" which has euphemistic association with
legalization and "path to X" programs such as IRCA (see 03/16/09
ID comment). The immigrants' rights opponents keep winning at
legislating (it's the "W" in the win-column, stupid!) because our
side - the immigrants' rights advocates - has failed to coin a
coherent message to convince Americans we mean what we say, like
the messages of the civil rights movement. "Ethic of reciprocity"
is nowhere in "CIR" to make anyone believe that amnesty isn't
about taking food from the mouths of innocent little Americans,
as rabid anti-immigrants suggest. Many of the CIR "players'" eyes
glaze over with $$ signs because CIR means $$ any way one cuts
it. The agency is literally highway-robbing poverty-level
immigrants with filing fees such as $930 for a four-page I-485
and others.  We must cease and desist from this "CIR" rush.
What's the alternative? Read my book: Immigration Reform - We Can
Do It, If We Apply Our Founders' True Ideals (Hamilton 2009). The
publisher rushed me, hoping to put it on shelves by Election Day.
Then the bottom fell out of the economy, and nobody wanted to
talk about anything else. Still, I tried hard to cobble together
several arguments. I begin simply with the construct that work is
a human right. If we require it of other countries, can we
trample it here? This is the kind of argument we must make. But
the other attention we must pay is the structure of the entire
INA.  Dillingham Commission sought to do something that's not
secret. Forty-one volumes were about racism.
Godfrey Y. Muwonge


(d) Dear Editor:
Responding to ID's 3/13/09 comment, this is the best way we can
upgrade the quality of service we can get from USCIS, by
digitizing operation and processes, and also to get the people
factor change their culture in rendering efficient, quality, and
timely service to us, their customers.  Eventually, we can get
the information we need from the internet - same way that the
personal health records are going to be made available in the
health care industry.  The USCIS system is broken, so with the
rest of the other systems in our government.  But, as long as
we're headed towards the right direction, and something is being
done, hopefully, we can get there as fast as we can. Progress
can't be delayed.  As long as we, the stakeholders, will be the
drivers, let's get vigilant, knowledgeable, and on the forefront
of our issues as we see them fit, and in unity we can not fail.
"Divide and conquer" is a strategy - let's not allow it to
happen.  Kudos to IT in USCIS proccesses! Digitizing it is just a
step, but a big leap to progress!  Hopefully, my two sons whom I
petitioned 7 years ago can get an answer - 7 years and all I
received was a letter of receipt of the petition, and that it
would take 999 days for processing.  It's been how many days now?
Luz  Fayetteville, NC


(e) Dear Editor:
CIR must happen in 2009 with common senses changes in our current
immigration laws. We must establish guarantor or bond system for
visa applicants from risky countries and allow more group tour
visas for tourists from many exporting and developing nations.
The global economy crisis happened because we spend too much on
imports and not to let our trading partners to spend that money
back in the US. Spurring tourism is one way to jump start our
economy and creating jobs. We must eliminate chain family based
category and put some strict condition that only immediate family
members can be sponsored if the sponsors are financially able to
do so and have means to support the new members. We must put
conditions on all new immigrants that they must be English
proficient, healthy and of good moral characters, accepting our
Constitution and the principle of separation of religion and
state, which is very important in relation of some Muslim
immigrants who still believe in imposing their outdated Sharia
laws where ever they are, secure jobs within 6 months and not
seeking any kind of public welfare for at least 10 years and must
have at least $ 6000 or 3 months worth of living expenses in the
US before they arrive here and giving earned legalization for
those who are here without legal papers. Work sites enforcement
must focus on employers and fine them with substantial fine to
cover the cost to compensate their illegal employees and cost of
repatriating them to their homelands. Our immigration laws should
not treat humans as criminals and putting them in jail for
working without permits but let focus on the employers to pay
their illegal workers to go back to their countries, this is good
enough as deterrent.
Robert Yang


(f) Dear Editor:
Murray's latest letter (03/16/09 ID) thankfully distances itself
from the blatently anti-immigrant views expressed in J.Roberts's
letter (03/16/09 ID). Unfortunately Murray's letter expresses an
elitest viewpoint when it comes to immigration policy. His leter
states it doesn't understand Prachal's letter suggesting investor
visa's to $50,000. "hardly more than the price of a well equipped
SUV."  Investor visas are proof positive of the racist and
elitest immigration policy we have been railing against. While
one with a college education with an Esq. on his signature may
seem like a paltry sum, if an investor from country where the per
capital average income is is below $4000 a year comes up with the
formidable sum of $50,000 to invest in America, we should sit up
and take note. There is a person America should be clamoring to
have. It pains me to think the children of rich European families
can get daddy to write a check to a real estate investment
interest in the US to come here to play in the elite
neighborhoods of our country. $500,000 for these people is a
pittance, why not require a substantial investment based on the
individual or family net worth? Is it really an "investment" or
pocket change?   Creating a system that lets one "buy-in"
regardless of character, work ethic or commitment to society
makes a mockery of the other hard earned visa categories. Being
rich doesn't make a person a disirable commodity. Investor visas
should be country specific, based on the per-capita incomes of
the country the Immigrant is coming from and reflect the value in
work ethic and ingenuity of the person who we allow to enter and
become a part of our great experiment. 
Sergi Sheplov


(g) Dear Editor:
In regards to the 3/16/09 Letters, the comment D. Murray's letter
made about my letters, I could use about those of R. Algase's: "I
wish Jim Roberts's letters [ ie: RA's ] would not use my letters
as support for his philosophies".  While my "too much
immigration" comment included legal and illegal entry which is
the "reality", there is nothing "American" about this or
"masterfully" about the deliberate twisting and revision of my
views to fit the racist, bigoted, distorted and clouded "lens"
through which the RA letters sees everything poorly.  Had the
last election been limited to BO, McCain and Alan Keyes (a
black), I would have voted for Alan, a man of principle.
Racebaiters use racism as a bully tactic to preclude other valid
reasons for making choices and is intellectually deficient and
they need to get off this tired horse. My letter was edited by
leaving out my J. Henderson comment and then attributed my
"faustian bargain", R. Gittelson comment to JH. On my enlarged
type screen, my letter was 45 lines as submitted, and 31 lines as
run. The number of lines in the letters that ran were: RA(42), RY
(47), DM (44) and VJ (45). My letter, before editing was similar
in length to the others. 
Jim Roberts
