(a) New Appointment - CIS Ombudsman

Contreras as CIS Ombudsman for the Department of Homeland
Security. The CIS Ombudsman provides independent analysis of
problems encountered by individuals and employers interacting
with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, and proposes

(a) Dear Editor:
As usual, the letter of R. Algase (11/23/09 ID) ignores the more
relevant aspects of our demographic make up and trends to reduce
a complex issue to the phony, racial question, "Is America ready
to accept diversity and the inevitable loss of white majority
status". That this can even be asked testifies to our out of
control entry and need for a moratorium, not amnesty, to sort
things out. The cuckoo bird is known for it's parasitic nature of
laying it's eggs in other bird's nests and upon hatching, the
intruder ungraciously crowds the rightful host's progeny out of
the nest. Certainly, every propaganda and strategy is used to
destroy traditional America including mass entry numbers, rather
than selective limits. To these usurpers and race baiters, any
resistance to this outrage is racist, "intolerance and police-
state tactics". Yes, it does, "depends on which kind of country
we want to live in?". Is it the one that white Europeans created
that millions have* aspired to join or one that excess entry
has/is diluted(ing) beyond recognition with 3rd world quality of
life and numbers? Those living in NY or CA are unable to tell the
difference or chose not to. In Lionel Waxman's profound article
(who lives in AZ), "Here in Aztlan, it's the People that make the
Difference" (search it), concludes that Latinos "have made a
concerted effort to recover" Atzlan and that by not assimilating
to traditional American ideals (which he realizes we have strayed
from), they won't reproduce American prosperity, "they will only
extend poverty to it". The R. Yang letters of 11/24 and 25
mistakes a Republic for a "tyranny of the majority" and should
leave US with the belief that the Indians are the owners to avoid
the hypocrisy of his positions.
