Founders Visa

Paul Graham, an accomplished technologist and a partner at a
venture capital firm that funds startups, has proposed a
"Founders Visa",
as a means of reinvigorating the US economy. "The biggest
constraint on the number of new startups that get created in the
US is not tax policy or employment law or even Sarbanes-Oxley.
It's that we won't let the people who want to start them into the
country. Letting just 10,000 startup founders into the country
each year could have a visible effect on the economy."

We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by

(a) Dear Editor:
David Murray's letter (10/15/09 ID) about the inevitable
incentive effects of an amnesty - to whit, that it will draw in
more illegal immigrants in the expectation, however false, of yet
another amnesty - pushes a lot of my buttons. I am a legal
immigrant and husband of another legal immigrant. My wife
occasionally describes herself as "an idiot" for having gone
through the irritating, expensive and occasionally humiliating
process of immigrating legally, not because American residency
and citizenship are not worthwhile, but because coming here
illegally seems at times to be the lower stress route to entry. A
common assumption among many letter writers is that immigrants
approve of the most permissive possible versions of CIR and that
opponents of CIR are racists. Another is that immigrants from all
other countries are somehow cheered by hordes of illegal,
illiterate and innumerate peasants from Oaxaca coming illegally
in order to live a decent life free of the stifling socialistic
paternalism of the corrupt, violent and inefficient Mexican
state. We may feel for them, but we came here to live in an Anglo
culture, not Oaxaca, or even comparatively higher performing
Monterrey. Having so many of our immigrants come from a single
location in Mexico with a particularly poor record of
assimilation into American life (in marked contrast to
Venezuelans, Cubans and Brazilians, for example) and the white
market economy probably raises more worries among legal
immigrants generally than it does among proponents of CIR or
American Anglos generally. Real multi-culturalism should demand
immigration with greater diversity. One resultant worry is that
the enforcement provisions and incentives of CIR will be as
illusory as those of the 1986 immigration compromise, and the
country we came her to live in will turn into something far less
open and palatable as a result.
Honza Prchal, Esq.                 Birmingham, AL

(b) Dear Editor:
As usual, David D Murray's letter (10/15/09 ID) goes to the heart
of the issue at hand, in this case, amnesty. As his letter
implies, no matter how many amnesties we have, there will never
be a last one. Amnesty is like putting a band aid on an arm or
leg which needs to be amputated. It is only a short term attempt
to deal with the symptoms of a more serious underlying
immigration problem - resistance to demographic change. Germans
were unwelcome in colonial America. Irish were persecuted in the
19th Century. Chinese were barred at the turn of the 20th. Jews,
Italians and Poles were restricted in 1924. When have Latino
immigrants ever been popular in this country? OK, many Latino
would-be immigrants are illegal, while the earlier immigrants
(most of them) came here legally. But when bigots want to kick
out someone who looks or sounds different from the majority,
there is always an excuse. 100 years ago, Chinese who came here
legally were regarded as racially "unassimilable". The law was
changed to make them illegal. Fifty or sixty years ago, Jews were
accused of being loyal to Israel, not America. Italians were
accused of being in the Mafia, or being anarchists. 150 years
ago, Irish immigrants were regarded as drunken criminals who
would turn this country over to the Pope. Who cared that they had
come legally? Who cares today that most Asian professional
workers are also here legally? That doesn't stop the demagogues
from attacking them as " low wage job stealers". Until Americans
can accept that ethnic change is what this country is all about,
we will never have a fair or rational immigration system. We will
always be waiting for the next amnesty.
Roger Algase, Esq.                 New York, NY

(c) Dear Editor:
I believe what Jim Roberts' letter (10/14/09 ID) fails to
recognize is that while America may have lost jobs for 21 months,
the jobs illegal aliens take normally would not be filled by
Americans anyway. Everyone accuses illegal aliens of working for
less than US workers. That may be true. What American can live on
minimum wage? Nobody can make me believe that  out-of-work
Americans are seeking minimum wage jobs, or jobs in agricultural
fields, low-paying factory, poultry or fish processing plant
jobs, where many illegals will be found. Many illegal aliens have
lost their jobs since the financial melt-down of the world
occurred last year. Many left the United States. That's
deportation by attrition, something I predicted long ago when I
supported vigorous enforcement of immigration laws, especially
employer sanctions. In answer to Mr. Roberts' letter's question,
"Why are we bringing into the US a million legal immigrants a
year to compete for jobs against 15 million to 25 million
Americans who can't find work or full-time jobs to take care of
their families?" - In a nut shell, I don't believe "we" are
importing them and I don't believe "they" compete against
Americans who can't find work. If California lost all our illegal
alien workers tomorrow, the economy of California would collapse,
because it has been built on a house of cards over the past
several decades. What are "we" going to do about it? We certainly
can't ignore the problem - it will not go away. There must be
immigration reform that accommodates the reality of past illegal
immigration, while making it clear that it will never again
happen, and that if any sort of an Amnesty is given, nobody will
thereafter ask, "When will the next Amnesty be?," as they did in
David D. Murray, Esq.                 Newport Beach, CA

(d) Dear Editor:
Regarding ID Comment "Gutierrez Principles" (10/15/09 ID):
Finally, a voice of reason on the immigration reform so badly
needed in our country!  I see, every day, lives kept in limbo by
the system we have now. I hope that Gutierrez continues his fight
and helps write a plan that works to right all the wrongs.
Carol McLachlan                 Kennett square, PA

(e) Dear Editor:
Regarding ID Comment "Gutierrez Principles" (10/15/09 ID): Does
the legislation grant immediate status to those in the low visa
categories, those who have waited  up to 12 years to come before
pathway  persons?   In fairness those who followed the law should
get a better "pathway".
Richard In****                 Chicago, IL

(f) Dear Editor:
Once again Robert Gittleson's letter (10/15/09 ID) hits the nail
on the head. I wish all americans could see the need for CIR.
Fair winds and following seas.
John J. Brannigan

(g) Dear Editor:
Regarding ID Comment "Gutierrez Principles" (10/15/09 ID): I want
to know what they are doing to help those that are working their
way through the system. I can't apply for adjustment of status
until my priority number comes up and according to the visa
bulletin they're working on June 2001. Apparently I have 7 years
to wait (but probably more). When do we get helped? We pay tons
of money are tied to our current employers, our spouses are
prohibited from working, we pay taxes and contribute to social
security and medicare but aren't eligible and yet no one is doing
anything to help us get processed. Do I need to become illegal -
seems like they have more rights to immigration than those that
follow the rules and pay the ridiculous processing and legal
fees. Frustrated!

(h) Dear Editor:
Well, at least two of the four Letters yesterday (10/15/09 ID)
made sense.  I happen to believe that the letters of R. Yang and
R. Gittelson are very industrious and intelligent, but have been
deluded by the undue influence of Globalism and Liberalism and
that regardless of words to the contrary, such views put America
and citizens last. The RG letters have long mistaken self bias
and interest for fact and majority opinion.  While the letter
tediously attempts to frame a philosophy of equality and
magnanimous fairness to all, the effort fails, as you cannot
bestow rights of citizenship or other "fairness" upon illegals
without being unfair to citizens and such efforts seem to have
more to do with profits than principles. We read, "where your
treasure is, there will your heart be also" (Matt. 6:21,24) and
"no man can serve two masters".  We do not see even this claimed
"equality" in practice.  Minorities are given preference,
illegals are given benefits designed and paid for citizens, lax
entry laws are only tokenly enforced and there is opposition to
even that, etc.  We will soon be dialing 1 for Spanish and 2 for
English. All of this looks "superior" to me as US citizens can't
get away with this in other lands or here.  The letter's
professed philosophy appears to be just another Sun Tzu tactic to
deceive and defraud US citizens to continue the entry invasion
and Plantation profits.  The letter does, "err at best and is
treasonous at worst" when illegals are allowed equal or superior
rights over citizens. Little wonder that with such a double-
minded lens, the letter views others as, "talking out of both
sides of their mouth".  The law states that illegals are not
supposed to be here and the apologists won't accept this.
