Police Foundation

The Police Foundation's report "The Role of Local Police:
Striking a Balance Between Immigration Enforcement and Civil
Liberties" is the culmination of a national effort to bring
together law enforcement leaders, public officials, scholars, and
community stakeholders to collaboratively examine the
implications of local law enforcement of immigration laws by
reviewing practices, constitutional issues, and economic factors.
The report concludes among other things "The costs of the 287(g)
program outweigh the benefits." For the 256-page report, see

(a) Dear Editor:
Congratulations to Reverend Robert McDonald and those who stand
with him (07/28/09 ID) in having the courage to initiate long
overdue steps to recall Arizona's favorite racist psychopathic
bully, Sheriff Joe Arpaio (07/23/09 Comment). It is good to know
that there are still some decent Americans who have the guts to
stand up against hatred and intolerance, whether wrapped in the
fig leaf of supposed concern about the environment and
"overpopulation", or whether masquerading as ''law enforcement".
I would rather read the letters of Jim Roberts, which at least
are honest in their wish to turn the entire US into a whites only
"gated community" than some other letters which indignantly deny
having even the slightest taint of racial prejudice, while
insisting that the only way we can avoid environmental, economic,
"cultural" or whatever other kind of Armageddon the writers in
question see in their fevered imaginations is to shut the gates
to America firmly against brown people.
Roger Algase, Esq.                New York, NY

(b) Dear Editor:
I am writing to praise the article written by Mark E. Nerenberg
(07/28/09 ID). I totally agree with the Article's analysis of the
current labor certification system. Especially in times of high
unemployment, it is cruel to desperate American workers to
advertise for jobs that do not exist. I have been practicing
immigration law for the past 32 years, and I have never had a
case where a U.S. worker was employed based on a labor
certification ad. I believe the immigration bar should advocate
for a change in the process to return to the prior system which
had the Labor Department determine if there is a labor shortage
for a particular position in a given geographic area. That system
would be infinitely better than the current one.
