(a) Dispelling The Divisive Myths Of Comprehensive Immigration

Robert Gittelson writes "Due to the unprecedented nature of the
national financial crisis that has emerged so prominently over
the past week or so, I feel that it is timely to discuss one
specific myth that I discuss in my article, and that is the myth
that illegal or undocumented immigrants cost our country more in
social services then they contribute to our tax base.",0107-gittelson.shtm,0107-gittelson.shtm#bio

available in our archives.

(a) Dear Editor:
In the latest in my much-acclaimed series of letters to Mr.
Donald Neufeld, Acting Associate Director of USCIS Domestic
Operations, I complained about the most recent USCIS blunder that
it has been my "pleasure" to encounter. Personnel at the Chicago
Lockbox rejected my client's I-765 because I had inadvertently
filed an outdated version of this Form. I sent them a new I-765
on the current version of the Form and wrote the following in my
cover letter: "The basis of your request that I submit a new
application is that the old one is outdated. The only difference
between the old one that I filed initially and the current one is
that the old one has 16 numbered items to complete while the
current one adds an item numbered 17. In its own terms, item 17
needs to be completed "If you [the applicant] entered the
Eligibility Category, c(3)(C), in item 16 above." Since my client
entered (c)(9) in item 16 in the initial application, just as he
entered (c)(9) in the current application, item 17 does not apply
to him. Had he filed the current form initially, he would have
correctly left item 17 blank. In rejecting his initial
application in these circumstances, you have taken an action that
is not just an abstract defiance of common sense, but one with
real-world adverse consequences: the creation of an unnecessary
delay in the processing of my client's case. Your action has
gained you not an iota of added information ..." In my letter to
Mr. Neufeld I wrote: "... Nevertheless, and perhaps precisely
because it is the garden variety of error that I encounter in so
many cases I file with USCIS, I wish to bring it to your

Leslie Davis* Long Beach, CA

Editor's note: Thanks for pointing out our error. The link has

(c) Dear Editor:
Regarding Mario Appuzo's ltr 1/06/09, Obama has presented his
Certification of Live Birth (COLB) has proof that he was born in
Hawaii. That is all that is required. He has the proper documents
case closed. Its interesting how Obama is faced with the same
dilemma many families within a stone throw of the southern border
are faced with, conspiracy theorists. Many families with children
born near the border later face tremendous burdens in "proving
citizenship" despite documentation and often cannot obtain
passports because "suspicious minds" at the State Department are
working overtime. Even families like Obama's where the parent is
a US Citizen and regardless of location of birth face questions
and hassles. I think its an arrogant attitude prevailing when
someone says "Obama has the burden to come forward with competent
evidence to prove that he was born in Hawaii. " Unfortunately
some of our State Department personnell have the same backward
and incorrect assumption when they deny Citizens with birth
certificates a Passport. Its the burden of the government to
prove a "crime" not the citizens burden to prove innocence.
Thats why this Immigration Haters attitude is so scarey. If we
give pencil pushers at DHS, Justice and State the freedom to
incarcerate and strip a citizen of his birthright which are the
rights to due process we create a nightmare. Think it through, E-
Verify has what a 3-5% error rate? So stripping 3-5% of the US
citizens who are kicked back erroneously of thier constitutional
liberty and flagging them as "live bait" for ICE "Enforcement
Only" action. Now that agencies are sharing information its a
matter of time before more* US Citizens are netted, detained and
held until they* "prove citizenship". We may never know what
"natural born" is, perhaps our forefathers envisioned test tube
babies, many were considered forward thinking.
