Welcome Mat

The Wall Street Journal reports "Culturally, we remain a very

arcane U.S. immigration policies that discourage young scholars
from settling in the U.S." For the full story, see here.

We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by
writing to mailto:editor@ilw.com.

(a) Immigrant Detention: Can ICE Meet Its Legal Imperatives And
Case Management Responsibilities?

Donald Kerwin and Serena Yi-Ying Lin for the Migration Policy
Institute explore "whether the ICE database and case tracking
system adequately serve the agency's need to adhere to its legal
mandates governing bond and parole, to adminster its custody
review processes for post-removal order detainees, to assess the
eligibility of detainees for alternative programs, and to abide
by its national detention standards."

Faster Route To Canadian Immigration

David Cohen writes "There are two Immigrant Investor programs:
the Federal Investor program, and the Quebec Investor program."

6.  Headlines

(a) Supreme Court To Hear Appeal Of Uighurs Still At Guantanamo

The case, Kiyemba v. Obama, is a potential landmark, pitting the
power of the judiciary to vindicate constitutionally-protected
habeas corpus rights against the power of the White House and
Congress to police US borders and enforce immigration laws.

(b) Trust But E-Verify

Instead of trying to completely re-work the immigration system,
lawmakers ought to focus on a few parts of the problem. Solve
them piece by piece.

(c) Maryland Reaction to Immigration Reform Proposal Foreshadows
National Debate

If the reaction from Maryland-area politicians, academic experts
and advocacy groups to a new immigration reform proposal is any
indication, the upcoming debate on the issue will be vehement and

(d) Am I A Racist For Thinking The 'Illegal Alien' Costume Is Funny?

If anything, the orange-jumpsuit costume comes across more as a
riff on anti-immigrant hysterics.

(a) Dear Editor:
Jim Roberts' 10/20 letter says "the R.Yang rant makes the Chinese
exclusion act seem like a stroke of genius" . ID is to be
commended for giving space to many different points of view about
immigration, even those that may come close to the line of being
racist in meaning, spirit or tone. But the above comment is of an
entirely different order. It praises a law which once tried to
bar an entire race of people from America's shores merely because
someone with a Chinese name wrote a letter that the Roberts
letter disagrees with. I fail to see how this would be any
different from writing a letter saying that the Holocaust was a
good idea because someone with a Jewish name had expressed a view
different from the letter writer's, or that dropping the bomb on
Hiroshima served someone with a Japanese name right for airing an
opinion about immigration that the letter writer in question
might find objectionable. Am I missing something?
Roger Algase, Esq.  New York, NY

(b) Dear Editor:
I visited John F.'s (10/20/2009 ID) beautiful state of Maine a
couple of years ago. When my wife and I entered a little
breakfast restaurant down by the waterfront in Portland , as I
looked into the kitchen, I saw no Mexicans. Feeling a little out
of my element, one of the first things I said to my wife, was,
"Where are all the illegals?" Apparently, every worker was, at
least visibly, 100 red-blooded American. But what is a red-
blooded American? In Maine, I doubt they really know - they think
they all look like them. Here in California they come in every
shape, size, color, ethnicity, religion, and culture you can
imagine. And that's what makes California great. But unlike
Maine, here in California, as in Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and
Texas, we have many illegals and many of those illegals work in
agriculture. Thousands and thousands of them. I invite John F.
out here to California, to go to Disneyland, enjoy our weather,
our sun, and our perspective on life. I invite him to the Central
Valley, or the Imperial Valley, where he can apply for a job as a
stoop laborer in the fields for nine bucks an hour, working out
in the hot sun from dawn to dusk, planting and harvesting crops.
Yes, there are jobs Americans won't do. Oh, you think they will?
Then I invite each and every unemployed person in the US come
take the jobs away from the illegals. But they won't come,
because Americans will not take those jobs. I don't believe
illegals should take them either, but I do believe in the
formulation of a workable immigration system that gives points
toward permanent residence for years toiling in the fields as a
legal nonimmigrant. That is comprehensive immigration reform, not
David D. Murray, Esq.  Newport Beach, CA

(c) Dear Editor:
So presume that immigration reform happens for all undocumented
workers. All those millions of undocumented can immediately come
in to register and get a green card. Their eventual citizenship
becomes assured. They get for nearly all the benefits of a
citizen. They can even work and live anywhere, join any
organization, and even run for public office. What happens to the
millions who want to follow them? What happens to their millions
of relatives? What happens all those who want to emigrate here
legally? What happens all those supporters who earned income
representing them? What happens to the cost of aiding all those
who need assistance? This huge increase will cause all other
immigration untenable. Without fully controlled borders, this
problem will never go away.
Peter G.   Los Angeles, CA

(d) Dear Editor:
Regarding yesterday's Articles and Letters (10/20/09 ID), I
apologize for the error in referencing "Gen. 8" which should have
been Genesis 11:8 where the Lord denied the attempt at Babel for
a "NWO" and: "scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of
all the earth" with separate languages and culture. This topic
and migrations are further discussed in Article (b):
"Observations On J. R. Edwards, Jr., 'A Biblical Perspective On
Immigration Policy' where Guatemala immigrant M. Daniel Carroll
Rodas writes "My hope is that this presentation will be helpful
to those who are advocates for immigrants, both documented and
undocumented." The article hits it's narrow goal as it does
nothing for the advocates of law, order, sovereignty or reasoned
debate. The article presumes to speak for God in declaring that:
"immigration policy at its heart is about helping the less
fortunate as special creatures of God instead of that other
framework that is defined by a defensive stance towards those
from elsewhere who are seen as a threat; it is about welcoming
the one in need, not about emphasizing boundaries and exclusion".
No comment is seen as to why persons can't fulfill their
destinies in their own lands, but have to migrate to US for this,
even if illegally.   But such lightweight, Liberal, self-serving,
presumptuous, recontexting is much easier than addressing the
more difficult or impossible task of rebutting the many
substantive arguments and references of the J. R. Edwards article
being critiqued. Both articles should be read by ID readers to
form their own opinions.
Jim Roberts

(e) Dear Editor:
What my letter and my opinion is really about, is simple.  If the
government and all involved in immigration were not so busy being
overly concerned about illegal aliens, they would be able to pay
attention to legal immigrants, who abide by your rules, and in
most cases are self sufficient, tax paying people, who bring a
wealth of knowledge and experience with them.  Professional
knowledge needed and welcomed by not only the USA, but most
western countries.  Once another amnesty is granted, what do
legal immigrants get in return for following the law?  How about
waiving the 5 year wait for citizenship?  I am in your country,
grateful for being allowed to be here, willing to share my
expertise, and not really expecting your government to waive the
5 yr period.  They have a long standing rule about that, and why
should it be changed for me?  Well the same goes for illegal
immigrants.  There are rules,  You follow them and you're not
entitled to anything else.  As for the Mr Algasse comment about
Americans being for the underdog (10/20/09 ID). Every time I
board an airplane, they always tell me to pull the oxygen mask
over my own mouth, before helping those that need help. Depriving
myself of oxygen is no good to anyone.
Linda Cogill

(f) Dear Editor:
In the first place this lawyer could have been a criminal lawyer
with very little knowledge of any consequences to the impact of
the immigration law(10/20/09 ID). Consequently whatever an
immigrant has issues that can affect him in an immigration court
it is to his advantage to look he gets to represent him in the
criminial court unless this is lawyer that was given by the court
to represent him then no one is to blame but himself/herself.
