Collateral Damage

The Washington Post
reports the Supreme Court is considering the case of a man facing
deportation who claims that his attorney misadvised him on the
immigration consequences of his pleading guilty to trafficking in
marijuana.  "The question before the court goes to what kind of
advice a lawyer must provide someone charged with a crime. The
Supreme Court in Kentucky -- where Padilla was arrested -- said a
lawyer is required only to advise his or her client about the
direct consequences of a guilty plea and not collateral issues,
such as how it would affect immigration status."

(a) Dear Editor:
This is regarding ID comment "Founders Visa" (10/16/09 ID). See
my blog article "The Founder's Visa - A Good Idea in the Haystack
of Bad Immigration News" (09/24/09 ID Article).
Angelo Paparelli, Esq.

(b) Dear Editor:
Regarding ID Coment on "Gutierrez's principles" (10/15/09 ID):
Why, oh why, are some of these politicians now pushing
immigration reform "principles" when what we need is reform of
the draconian statutes that have devastated good families and
hardworking lives!  Where was Mr. Gutierrez and others when
Congress was able to make an upheaval of the Immigration and
Nationality Act and quietly attached it to the AEDPA signed by
Clinton; that changed the Immigration laws drastically making
virtually every part of the Immigration and Nationality Act from
Immigration friendly and caring to Immigration deadly!  Congress
has no idea of the consequences that have befallen many of those
in this country who have comported themselves better than some of
our citizens.  I guess Congress did not have the foresight to
really figure out that the backlogs in visas would never make up
for the mothers and fathers we have deported for overstaying
them.  Well, let's think ahead:  can we really support things
like the Dream Act, when the parents of children who are dreaming
are being deported?
Marc Seguinot, Esq.

(c) Dear Editor:
I am an immigrant.  A very legal immigrant with years of
frustration finally behind me, but a few more to go for
citizenship.  All the talk about amnesty, special favors etc for
illegal immigrants.  I have heard no arguing from some of your
regular pro-illegal immigrant letter writers, about any special
favors for the legal immigrants.  Maybe letters of Roger Algasse
and the likes would like to take on the issue on my behalf of
waiving the five year wait for citizenship after my endless wait
for a greencard.  Surely I "deserve" this (and this is sarcasm).
I have after all played by all the rules.  Or are the special
favors only reserved for the illegal immigrants, by definition
criminal immigrants.   I imagine Jim Roberts letters have little
compassion for me, a legal immigrant, as he does for illegal
immigrants, but his letters never cease to impress me with their
opinions, all of which I agree with whole heartedly.  One day
when I can eventually vote, if you want to run for any office,
you will have my vote.
Linda Cogill

(d) Dear Editor:
Regarding Jim Roberts' letter (10/15/09 ID): My letter stated
that none, Americans included that should be exempted from any
kind of global market competition is nothing about globalism nor
liberalism. It's a down to earth fact and inconvenient truth. Mr.
Roberts' letter stated that illegal immigrants got "benefits"
above legal ones and citizens, in what forms? We got sick and
tired of these kind of baseless and cruel accusations.  Uninsured
broke US citizens can get "free" medical treatments at E.R.in any
hospitals just like illegal immigrants and no hospitals can force
anyone to pay these bills except by charging insured patients and
tax payers to foot the bills by higher premium, that's why every
American must support mandatory comprehensive universal health
care for everyone and put an end to greedy for profit insurance
companies which act as "death panel" by rejecting coverage to
many Americans and dump many others as they got sick and sicker
and cost them more money and eat their profit. The Jesus I know
in the Holy Bible is Jesus who teaches us to share, forgive, be
good Samaritans, love our neighbors as ourselves, to be kind and
generous to strangers as the Israelis and Jesus Himself once
lived as strangers and refugees in Egypt, Jesus rejected violence
by rebuking Peter taking his sword to cut Roman guard who came to
arrest Jesus to defend him. Biblical God is God who believes in
second chance and "amnesty". Gun toting, self centered,
xenophobes, Bible quoting for convenient conservatives may have
believed in another Jesus. Conservatives are ridiculous when
accusing others while love to ignore facts and love to use false
opinions as facts.
