Immigration Evangelists

The Associated Press
reports that an  Evangelical group representing 40 denominations
and scores of Christian organizations has urged Congress to pass
Comprehensive Immigration Reform. "The National Association of
Evangelicals' resolution, passed unanimously by the group's board
of directors, recommends that immigration laws provide a path for
the undocumented to eventually gain legal status, place a high
priority on reuniting families and reduce backlogs of petitions
in those areas."

(a) USCIS Releases New G-28 Form; Havoc Ensues As Numerous
Problems Become Evident

Vic Goel writes "In an era when our immigration agencies have so
many problem areas to fix, it seems like tinkering with the G-28
was at best a foolish lark, and at worst, more evidence of the
pervasive culture of "no" that immigration attorneys have long
complained about.  I'm still hoping it's the former and not the

(a) Dear Editor:
I'll consider the propriety of calling those individuals
determined by a court of law to have violated immigration laws
"illegal aliens" when those convicted of retail theft are
generally and acceptingly designated as "illegal thieves"; those
convicted of jaywalking are recognized as "illegal meanderers";
those convicted of exceeding the speed limit as "illegal
drivers"; and attorneys convicted of contempt of court as
"illegal lawyers".  Until then, I will continue to maintain that
while human beings may commit illegal acts, that does not make
them illegal human beings, and designating them as such is
demeaning and dehumanizing, even if done as a matter of
convenience and  even where no slight is intended.  Having
represented a number of individuals who were determined to have
been US citizens at birth, and really did not need to enter
without inspection, I will not rely on Sheriff Joe's conclusions
of "illegality" or any other person's similar conclusions until
all of the facts have been ascertained and examined in an
appropriate judicial proceeding with due process accorded the
accused, and even then, I reserve the right to disagree with
their findings of fact or law, even if required to abide by them.
Robert R. Gard, Esq.                 Chicago, IL

(b) Dear Editor:
How "tedious"  it is to hear the same old circumlocutions the
letters as those of Mr. Murray, Esq's ilk (10/09/09 ID) as they
attempt to mask their antipathy for immigrants.   To begin with,
when many of us urge that the more descriptive term "undocumented
immigrant" be used, it is most certainly not in the interests of
anything so insubstantial as "political correctness." It is a
matter of expressing one's ideas effectively  and as the first
phrase specifically describes the condition and its pejorative
counterpart requires further clarification...well, you get my
point.   I also take exception to Mr. Murray, Esq.'s letter's
assertion that immigrants  "flaunt" our laws and  "then seek to
change them to suit their own purposes."  Many immigrants coming
from Mexico and Latin America are jeopardizing life and limb
(often losing one or both) in attempting passage here because it
is often the only the only means  available to them due to our
severely outdated visa quotas (as the letter grudgingly
acknowledges).  That's a far cry from flaunting!  And, by the
way, immigrants aren't the only ones wanting to fix our broken,
out-dated, inefficient and unjust immigration system.  The
greater number of native-born Americans have indicated their
support for immigration reform.   And finally, after all the
facile assertions Mr. Murray, Esq.'s letter serves up, it
concludes that the author of the article (10/07/2009 ID Article)
has no respect for the law and without respect for the law, we
have anarchy--i.e. the author is an anarchist-- "illegal",
"alien", "anarchist" --those are, indeed, words that carry scary
images and connotations!  Mission accomplished.
R. Heuman

(c) Dear Editor:
I would like to explore some off-the-cuff counter arguments to
the statement of David D. Murray's letter (10/9/09 ID), that
"Americans do not owe the world a better life." The flip side to
Manifest Destiny would suggest that we very well might. As his
letter's statement directly relates to our undocumented
residents, I would ask the question that while we may or may not
"owe" the world a better life, what responsibility do we owe when
we "buy" the undocumented a better life? The undocumented are
here because we paid for them to be here. They did not come to
see the sights, they came to work, and we gladly hired them. Now,
they came here to "seek" a better life, but we did not give it to
them, we purchased it for them by paying their wages, and
benefited from the sweat of their brows. In all candor, we are
reneging on our part of the bargain, and on our own "golden
rule." We have the gold, but our rules aren't fair and just. We
have a shared responsibility for the presence of the vast
majority of the undocumented that are here. We must fess up to
that unfortunate little fact. Almost everyone, Republican,
Democrat, and Independent, agrees that we have a shared
responsibility for turning a blind eye, and allowing these people
to remain here and work at the jobs that we didn't, couldn't, or
wouldn't do for ourselves. Some documented workers might or might
not be willing to temporarily and begrudgingly do some of this
work. That doesn't exonerate us from the fact that we have a
shared responsibility for "luring" these migrants here in the
first place. We must treat these humans fairly, and not pull the
rug out from under them. It simply isn't ethical.
Robert Gittelson

(d) Dear Editor:
I want to add up here on very important issue of legal people, I
repeat "legal immigrants". We have not taken this issue seriously
and on priority buy would like to mention that they are the
people who are directly connected with our economy and can help
us in coming out from current recession.   I could not understand
why and how we can even talk for favoring or any type of liberty
to undocumented illegal people where about two million highly
educated legal immigrants are in line waiting to complete their
procedure for getting their GC ? There are thousands of legal
immegrants well educated with rich experience are stucked in
immigration with one or another reason. That reasons are also not
serious but well known and internationally accepted but not
accepted by USCIS.  I previously wrote on same point on I-140.
USCIS is still not accepting foreign BS degree of 3 years
specially for EB-3 against US BS degree of 4 years even after
submitting credential copies by USCIS aproved credentialist.
People are working on same position and doing same job, requested
for aproval in their petition with foreign degree since 8-10
years. Their employers are also happy with those immigrants and
would like to make them permenant but still USCIS is looking for
equilency of BS degree. I think one should honour foreign BS
degree and if not at least after certain years of USA experience.

(e) Dear Editor:
There is a big difference between the problem we have in America
And what ID has been saying. The criminal illegal aliens stealing
our benefits, having kids At my expense while taking my food
stamps to feed the little illegal children and men who do not
wish to support them that made them. The immigrants you speak of
are in two different boats, please Distinguish between the two
and quit trying to make it all okay.  I will agree most living in
the united states of America are immigrants but the illegal
aliens are not immigrants but illegal aliens and they steal
everthing not nailed down.
