In Perna Lal's article of 12/29/2011, she states: "...When his family tried to post bail for his release, officials at the detention center informed them that since Hadi was Pakistani-born, there was no bail for him." To this I say, I don't believe it. I am not agreeing in "outrage". I am doubting the veracity of the claim made in the article. IF this were true, where is the ACLU Lawsuit? Why has this "denial of bail based SOLELY on nationality" NOT on the front page of every newspaper and being trumpeted on all the networks in the U.S. and internationally? How could Immigration Daily let this blatant lie get past its editorial staff! Shame on you.

There is just one correction that needs to be made to my colleague Matthew Kolken's powerful and eloquent indictment of Obama's deportation policy (December 29 ID). Eisenhower, who was first elected president in 1952, was not responsible for the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was.

I can relate to this situation very clearly. When in 1993 I was out of work I survey the area and needs of the immigrants and decided to start an agency to help them and give some type of work. I succeeded not because of the need but the output of my effort. Now I can truthfully say that I worked and give jobs to one more on permanent basis and one more during the tax season. This job has to be done by someone who can speak their language and let them know when it is legal to do something or not.

This news I read is so true. The media has distorted the plight of the immigrants because fear has more force thant telling the truth. I agree that is a percentage that rotten apples but most of the immigrants that come here is to help themselves as well as the country itself. The immigrants regardless of whether educated or not take what the American people see as beneath their dignity to work. When time passes the immigrants look for ways to create a job that is needed and that he is able to do. When this happen no matter how many other companies may have the same idea, it seems theirs is more effective to who the job was done. I am an immigrant and I created my own job market in a small town of the state of Arkansas. I do not try to take advantage and try to do my best.

Subject: Alabama immigration blogs and videos
I just wanted to send some links of recent blog posts and videos regarding Alabama’s immigration law, HB 56, in case you were interested in posting or linking.
Most of the Alabama content can be found on this page http://www.aclu.org/crisis-alabama-immigration-law-causes-chaos. We recently posted this blog post and video http://www.aclu.org/blog/immigrants-rights/pioneering-jurist-alabama-anti-immigrant-law-spark-new-civil-rights-struggle about U.W. Clemon, Alabama’s first African-American federal judge, who talked about the law in terms of a new civil rights crisis. We have also posted a blog post and video http://www.aclu.org/blog/immigrants-rights/alabamas-immigration-law-separates-long-time-friends of James Pilgrim, a Birmingham-area mobile home park owner, who talked about the families who left the state as a result of the law.

THAT'S TRUE BUT NOT MANY PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT. THE IMMIGRATION JUDGE IN OMAHA,NE GAVE ME DEPORTATION LAST YEAR IN DECEMBER AND I DIDN'T HAVE ANY OTHER CHOICE THAN, CLOSING MY SMALL TRUCKING BUSSINESS AND MAKING MY PLANS TO GO BACK TO MY COUNTRY. AFTER LEAVING IN THE STATES FOR OVER 20 YEARS. LEAVING PART OF MY FAMILY IN THE UNITED STATES. BUT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO LIVE HERE HIDING.
