Rich Talent Pool

Knowing that networking leads to most job leads, what is the
value of placing a help wanted ad, especially during hard
economic times? An Employer who continues to advertise open
positions regardless of current economic conditions taps into a
much larger talent pool, expanding its network. This expanded
network helps employers - large and small - both in the short-
term and long-term. To benefit from the rich talent pool of job
seekers, see here.

(a) Dear Editor:
Regarding ID comment on Traffic Deportations (03/05/09 ID): Here
in Chula Vista, CA, 5 miles north of Tijuana, there are lots of
undocumented aliens driving cars. Normally, they are safe
drivers, because they do not want to draw attention to
themselves, as they have families here who need them. There is a
Mexican-American cop, though, who looks for them and stops them.
He cites them for driving without a license, insurance, etc.,
impounds the car, and calls "La Migra," if he knows or even
suspects that they are undocumented. I'm guessing that he doesn't
stop a lot of Gringo-looking folks. Reportedly, he's quite
arrogant and rude, also. So, the government gets the car, the
family has to pay the onerous rip-off towing and storage fees,
and the alien gets to go into removal proceedings.     Little
does this Latino cop know, but he may be doing our illegals a
favor. A good percentage of our illegal aliens have been here for
a long time, have US Citizen kids, have always worked, have never
committed a crime, and are eligible for cancellation of removal.
They normally have no other way to immigrate, until the US
citizen kids grow up. It's a difficult and expensive path to have
to take, but it's a shot, and it's the only way sometimes.
John E. Shorkey, Esq.

(b) Dear Editor:
A pro-illegal alien editorial in the March 3rd New York Times
criticizes Bush Administration immigration raids and questions
who in the Obama Administration is in charge of immigration.
Pleading for an end to ICE's law enforcement efforts, the
editorial claims it is a war without a plan and that the country
is not now a better place, acusing sheriff Joe Arpaio of brutally
misusing his powers and terrorizing Latino neighborhoods under
the auspices of INA 287(g). The editorial says, "Americans who
might applaud any crackdown on illegal immigrants, particularly
in a recession, should know that scattershot raids and rampaging
sheriffs are not the answer. The idea that enforcement alone will
eliminate the underground economy is a great delusion... no
conceivable regime of raids will wrench 12 million illegal
immigrants from their jobs and homes."  I say it is time for
action, not the rehashing and restating of ideas about
globalization, discrimination and anti-immigration rhetoric that
at the end of the day offer no solutions. It is time to propose
how to end the blatant violation of US immigration law over the
past three decades and offer solid suggestions that can be turned
into law which will benefit Americans, rather than certain
special interest group minorities.  It is time to stop whining
about the immigration problem, instead of offering solutions.  I
challenge the readers of Immigration Daily to put on their
collective thinking caps and, (1) explain exactly why, in this
period of devastating recession and rampant layoffs, Americans,
to whom jobs is so important right now, should support an end to
workplace enforcement, (2) explain why they believe workers
displaced by the ICE raids will not be replaced by laid off
American workers, and (3) offer a plan to stop future illegal
immigration, whether or not "CIR" is passed into law.
David D. Murray, Esq.                 Newport Beach, CA

(c) Dear Editor:
Regarding ID comment on Traffic Deportations (03/05/09 ID): Add
Hall County, Ga. to the list of places where the sheriff is using
any excuse to deport people. Any excuse to stop a driver is good
as what they want to find is someone with no license. Some have
claimed passengers are also asked for documentation and arrested
and deported if they have none.
Dave Anderson                 Gainesville, GA

(d) Dear Editor:
Regarding ID comment on Traffic Deportations (03/05/09 ID): In
United States, there are a lot of poeple who are involved in
major crime like murder or rob.  As per my understadning, people
who have some minor traffic violations are not supposed to get
deported on humanitarian grounds. Atleast they should be given a

(e) Dear Editor:
In reference to the discussion about the visa waiver program's
purported racism, I'd be curious to know if the Dominican
Republic offers more relaxed regulations for Swiss tourists than
it does for Nigerian holidaymakers.  If so, according to the
reasoning of some letters, would this be considered a racist
policy per se, as it apparently is by some in the US.
Enrique Olivares

(f) Dear Editor:
Any disputes about BO's citizenship is too late now. No Democrat
challengers nor the Republicans trying to point out on this issue
openly much earlier. And maybe the majority of Americans got
tired of "native" white Presidents who messed up the economy and
this country and gave a non white "possible illegal alien" a
chance instead, to be honest, I will vote an illegal alien as US
president if he can do much better job than Bush if possible. I
have a principle that anyone that have the merits, skills and
capabilities shall be rewarded with decent compensation and
opportunities and he deserves the chance to get the best and to
be the best, regardless of his geographical location,
citizenship, color, creeds, faiths, gender and race. I don't
believe in nativism and protectionism, that ones should be
treated specially and deserve on certain entitlements over other
fellow human beings just because being born as Americans. My
suggestion on putting bonds or guarantor system on visa issuance
and compliance is only a common sense suggestion. We can't expect
our over burdened consuls to really look and judge objectively on
visa applicants eligibility to  secure visitor visas.  Today,
many Chinese and Indians have more money than white but broke
British or Icelandians, broke guys will likely to work here
illegally, won't they?
