    USCIS Overwhelmed

    Homeland Security Inspector General issued a reportlast month
    concluding that the USCIS is overwhelmed by its current workload
    due to its antiquated technology and failures ofmodernization
    initiatives, and therefore "lacks the processing capacity, systems
    integration and project management resources needed to manage a
    potential increase in workloads."

    6. LETTERS

    (a) Dear Weekly Editor:
    A letter by Zin (IW 01/02/07) brought me to task for not wanting
    illegal aliens in the USA. I quote one line: "Unless one plans on
    answering to Homeland Security Security when one pass(sic) thru
    the Golden Gate." If Homeland Security is monitoring traffic over
    the Golden Gate looking for terrorists, yes I will talk to them
    before passing thru. I hope that address' letter writer's
    concern--if they were referring to the Golden Gate Bridge in SF.

    Another letter by Bibi Wahaab (IW 01/02/07), suggested that I
    should remember that all illegal aliens are not criminals. Drug
    dealers, murderers, thieves, rapists, etc. make up only a small
    percentage of the illegal aliens in my Country. Those with that
    kind of mindset are going to be even more unwelcome in the USA.
    The USA has borders. It is illegal to cross them without legal
    entry papers. That's why we refer to at least 12 million aliens
    in our midst as illegal aliens. Illegal as in against the law.
    If it is OK to break our border crossing law, why not others?
    Like driving without a license, without insurance, leaving the
    scene of an accident, yes, including bringing in and selling
    drugs! At the present time we have 3 capital murder trials going
    on where my wife and I live All 3 involving illegal aliens.
    Criminals the moment that they crossed our border illegally. I
    sincerely hope that this clarifies our point of view. Hunger and
    lack of work and opportunity does not give anyone the right to
    cross our border unlawfully. I honestly think that many
    understand that, but refuse to accept it.

    Ken Roberts

    (b) Dear Weekly Editor:
    I'd like to say that I find it ironic that the military-
    industrial complex which has at its roots an extremely racist and
    xenophobic form of conservatism is now embracing immigrants,
    albeit as cannon fodder, by pretending to offer them a helping
    hand. Are the wealth and profits of the American ruling class
    really so valuable that they must be defended by "lowly"
    immigrants (and minorities) which have for so long been the
    targets of the hatred of and oppression by that same class? Just
    as the slaves were the ones who protected their masters, the same
    masters who abused and murdered them, many immigrants are now
    being bribed into protecting a nation which has abused and
    murdered poor people all over the world for 200 years. What
    hypocrisy.
