Letters to Editor:

Hello ILW Team Members:

I have been a loyal follower if ILW since the 80's. You people are on the ball and you are consistent! I value all your efforts.

I don't moan and groan. Because, our industry defies common sense. So, one has to do their best with a broken down system.

However, today, I am so frustrated with the Dept of Labor Prevailing Wage Unit.

In the 70's one could obtain a PWD in 5 to 7 days.

As of today, I have a PWD Request still in process for a "Pre-School Teacher". I filed it on 08/28/2016. today's date is: 12/09/2016.

I have sent emails to the Dept. All I get back is, an email that states "first in, first served" .

I would love some feed back from anybody? I am sure there are many more practitioners out there going through this "Travesty".

Viv Dalton

    Update: Deccember 14.

    Also see Greg Sargent in the December 14 Washington Post:

    Trump is threatening our democracy. Blame the Repubicans who are looking the other way.

    (Sorry, I don't have a link - please use Google.)

    My question for today is:

    Has America just "elected" its first fascist (or at least authoritarian, proto-fascist) president?

    My original letter appears below.

    I am astounded to see that, other than my own December 13 blog entry, which has not yet been published in Immigration Daily, there is no reference anywhere in today's (December 13) issue, to the cataclysmic news which appeared over the weekend indicating a likelihood that Russia manipulated the election in order to make Donsald Trump the next president, followed by the horrifying appointment of a Putin stooge and toady as Secretary of State.

    Where will America's immigration policy be determined during the next four (or eight) years - or longer, if Trump shows the same "resepect" for the two-term limit in the Constitution that he has been showing for other Constutional provisiona such as the 1st, 8th and 14th Amendments? In Washington or in Moscow? If in Moscow, what will America's immigration policy be like?

    As I mention in my blog today (under "Immigration Law Blogs"), Russia's dictator and Donald Trump's great friend and supporter Vladimir Putin, (who is also busy aiding an abetting the war crimes committed by Assad's butchers, torturers and chemical warriors in Syria), has plans to set up more than 80 immigrant detention concentration camps in Russia, one outside every major Russian city, and to punish Russian citizens, not only immigrants, for failure to comply with various immigration related rules.

    Will this be a template for Putin's eager admirer, if not disciple, Donald Trump, whom the CIA suspects may have been assisted in his quest for the White House by Putin, for Trump's immigration policy?

    Will America have a network of immigrant concentration camps, one in every major US city courtesy of Donald Trump based on Putin's inspiration?

    Will we one day soon have a network of American concentration camps for US citizens who "harbor" or "assist" immigrants under INA Section 274?

    What kind of democracy will America have then? The same, no doubt, as what the Russian people have under Putin today.

    As immigration advocates and people who care about America's democracy, it would be nice to bury our heads in the sand and pretend that our immigration system, and our freedoms, will be business as usual and continue without interruption after January 20, 2017, as if nothing in particular had happened on November 8, 2016.

    But all the indications are that Donald Trump, Putin's admirer, friend and beneficiary, to whom Trump owes an overwhelming debt of gratitude if the CIA's assesment about alleged Russian hacking of the DNC inorder to put Trump in the White House is correct, may well have other plans - other plans for our immigration system, and other plans for our democracy.

    Dear Folks: Good news for Americans in Argentina. "Ambassador" Noah Mamet, a bodyguard-fundraiser-limousine driver, Obama´s buddy, is GONE. We fought, we won! No more embassy parties with the local media and the jet set paid with our taxes, while mistreating senior Americans in Buenos Aires. Hasta la vista!

    Will December 19, 2016, go down in history as the day that America, through its antiquated and useless Electoral College system, officially handed over its democracy to a dictatorship by an ego-obsessed popular vote loser whose campaign was based on hate and contempt directed against immigrants, Latinos, Muslims, African-Americans, Asians, women and anyone who disagreed with him about almost anything, whose post-election appointments indicate that he cares only about the welfare of his own businesses and investments and those of other like-minded billionaires and who threatens to destroy the health insurance, union bargaining power and social security benefits of millions of ordinary Americans, including the great majority of the people who voted for him; who may try to undo decades of environmental protection and hasten the extinction of this planet; who promises to set back half a century of civil rights advances and progress toward racial and gender equality; and who, according to both the FBI and CIA, was aided in achieving his electoral college victory by Vladimir Putin, arguably the most dangerous and expansionist of all the ruthless dictators active in the world today, and whose support for the murderous Assad regime in Syria, including but not limited to the destruction of Aleppo, deserves to go down in history as a war crime equal to the Nazi destruction of places such as Leningrad and Guernica during WW2?

    All indications are that the answer to the above question will be yes.
