    Unprecedented Rise In Immigration Fees

    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officials announced a
    proposed increase in immigration fees that is unprecedented in
    U.S. immigration history. For example, the current fee of $330
    to apply for citizenship would rise to slightly less than $600.

    6. LETTERS

    (a) Dear Weekly Editor:
    I am international Student from Burma currently studying at
    University of Toledo , Ohio . My best Friend as well as my
    roommate was just arrested yesterday (01/25/06) under immigration
    Act in Toledo , Ohio . Two Immigration Officers came in and
    arrested him under the violation of Immigration Act. He arrived
    to American on the 17th of April 2001. He was a sailor and he got
    down from the ship where he was working due to some political
    issue. After he got down from his work place, he went of
    political asylum petitions. It was some how rejected by the judge
    for two times. As he applied for Political Asylum Petition which
    makes him impossible to go back to Burma . Although, he has
    attorney to handle his situations, unfortunately the lawyer who
    he appointed since NOV 2005 was just cheated him and do nothing
    for him. Yesterday then we realized the situations. The
    immigration officers told him that he will be sent back to Burma
    according to Deportation rule. I am very sure that he will get
    arrested once he steps in to Burma . When he applied for Asylum
    , Burma government has already know that he went of political
    Asylum petition in the United State . So me and his families back
    in Burma are so worry about him. I hope you will help us. He was
    so happy that he is going to get status soon after listening
    President State of Union Address. Unfortunately, he got arrested
    at the end.

    (b) Dear Weekly Editor:
    Everybody is so worried about all the Illegal Immigrants in the
    US but what about the families they leave behind when you deport
    them. Nobody seems to think about us and how we will survive
    thats why so many people go on welfare because you take our
    families from us and we can't support ourselves let alone our
    children they way the economy is now. I wish that somebody would
    address this situation in a reasonable manner and try to
    understand what it is that we are going through. I worry everyday
    because I don't know if there going to come and take the father
    of my child. Then how will we survive. My child will then have to
    grow up not knowing who her father is and where she came from she
    will know nothing about her heritage and her fathers and thats
    not right it's bad enough that americans have to go through that
    just because there dads don't wonna be around or support there
    kids.

    Shannon Smalley

    (c) Dear Weekly Editor:
    What ever happened to the "Bracero Program", in effect in Calif
    way back in the 70"s ? Seems to me , we had a good program in
    effect then and now mr Bush proposes such an undertaking. Who
    told him about it??

    Bob Warren
    Fontana, CA

    (d) Dear Weekly Editor:
    President Bush is right, you can only secure the border if a law
    will be passed to make it legal to enter the border thru a guest
    worker visa. It is a fact, whether we like it or not, that
    foreign workers are needed for some jobs that cannot be filled up
    by Americans. And those that are here, legalize those that have
    been paying taxes and is working. Those that do not meet at least
    these basic requirement should be sent back and let them line up
    with those that are applying to become guest workers.

    Gladys Roman

    (e) Dear Weekly Editor:
    Last year, President Bush indicated a willingness to sign a
    comprehensive immigration bill, which included an earned
    citizenship pathway for those who are here illegally. Senators
    McCain and Kennedy crafted a bill. Through compromise, a bill by
    Senators Hagel and Martinez was passed by the Senate. But the
    House refused to pass a bill and work in conference with the
    Senate on a compromise solution. The person who stalled the
    process was Dennis Hastert. He was Speaker of the House. But he
    is that no longer. Hastert refused to allow a bill to go forward
    because he had a "majority of the majority" rule - a majority of
    Republicans had to support a bill being brought forward for a
    vote. Otherwise, that bill got bagged. CIR was one of those
    bills. Nancy Pelosi now has the opportunity to allow a CIR bill
    to go forward. If she does, a majority of the House, which will
    comprise members of both political parties will support it. The
    key to CIR is in Speaker Pelosi's hands. This reader hopes she
    acts sooner, rather than later.

    (a) Dear Weekly Editor:
    I am international Student from Burma currently studying at
    University of Toledo , Ohio . My best Friend as well as my
    roommate was just arrested yesterday (01/25/06) under immigration
    Act in Toledo , Ohio . Two Immigration Officers came in and
    arrested him under the violation of Immigration Act. He arrived
    to American on the 17th of April 2001. He was a sailor and he got
    down from the ship where he was working due to some political
    issue. After he got down from his work place, he went of
    political asylum petitions. It was some how rejected by the judge
    for two times. As he applied for Political Asylum Petition which
    makes him impossible to go back to Burma . Although, he has
    attorney to handle his situations, unfortunately the lawyer who
    he appointed since NOV 2005 was just cheated him and do nothing
    for him. Yesterday then we realized the situations. The
    immigration officers told him that he will be sent back to Burma
    according to Deportation rule. I am very sure that he will get
    arrested once he steps in to Burma . When he applied for Asylum
    , Burma government has already know that he went of political
    Asylum petition in the United State . So me and his families back
    in Burma are so worry about him. I hope you will help us. He was
    so happy that he is going to get status soon after listening
    President State of Union Address. Unfortunately, he got arrested
    at the end.

    (b) Dear Weekly Editor:
    Everybody is so worried about all the Illegal Immigrants in the
    US but what about the families they leave behind when you deport
    them. Nobody seems to think about us and how we will survive
    thats why so many people go on welfare because you take our
    families from us and we can't support ourselves let alone our
    children they way the economy is now. I wish that somebody would
    address this situation in a reasonable manner and try to
    understand what it is that we are going through. I worry everyday
    because I don't know if there going to come and take the father
    of my child. Then how will we survive. My child will then have to
    grow up not knowing who her father is and where she came from she
    will know nothing about her heritage and her fathers and thats
    not right it's bad enough that americans have to go through that
    just because there dads don't wonna be around or support there
    kids.

    (c) Dear Weekly Editor:
    What ever happened to the "Bracero Program", in effect in Calif
    way back in the 70"s ? Seems to me , we had a good program in
    effect then and now mr Bush proposes such an undertaking. Who
    told him about it??

    Bob Warren
    Fontana, CA

    (d) Dear Weekly Editor:
    President Bush is right, you can only secure the border if a law
    will be passed to make it legal to enter the border thru a guest
    worker visa. It is a fact, whether we like it or not, that
    foreign workers are needed for some jobs that cannot be filled up
    by Americans. And those that are here, legalize those that have
    been paying taxes and is working. Those that do not meet at least
    these basic requirement should be sent back and let them line up
    with those that are applying to become guest workers.

    Gladys Roman

    (e) Dear Weekly Editor:
    Last year, President Bush indicated a willingness to sign a
    comprehensive immigration bill, which included an earned
    citizenship pathway for those who are here illegally. Senators
    McCain and Kennedy crafted a bill. Through compromise, a bill by
    Senators Hagel and Martinez was passed by the Senate. But the
    House refused to pass a bill and work in conference with the
    Senate on a compromise solution. The person who stalled the
    process was Dennis Hastert. He was Speaker of the House. But he
    is that no longer. Hastert refused to allow a bill to go forward
    because he had a "majority of the majority" rule - a majority of
    Republicans had to support a bill being brought forward for a
    vote. Otherwise, that bill got bagged. CIR was one of those
    bills. Nancy Pelosi now has the opportunity to allow a CIR bill
    to go forward. If she does, a majority of the House, which will
    comprise members of both political parties will support it. The
    key to CIR is in Speaker Pelosi's hands. This reader hopes she
    acts sooner, rather than later.
