Detention Is Un-American

In his scholarly work "Modern Times: A History of the World from
the 1920s to the 1980s", prominent historian Paul Johnson points
out the fact that one of the defining characteristics of
tyrannies is the accumulation of prisoners who are unconvicted of
any crime. By that characterisation, the United States has taken
a step closer to tyranny by setting up its immigration detention
system in the post-IIRAIRA world. In this cruel system, tens of
thousands of immigrants seeking the American Dream languish in
deplorable conditions. These detainees include children, whose
only offense it was to dutifully accompany their parents.
Adequate medical care is not provided to detainees, as the
Washington Post reported in 2008: "
Some 83 detainees have died in, or soon after, custody during the
past five years. The deaths are the loudest alarms about a system
teetering on collapse. Actions taken -- or not taken -- by
medical staff members may have contributed to 30 of those deaths,
according to confidential internal reviews and the opinions of
medical experts who reviewed some death files for The Post." To
treat the seeking of the American Dream as a crime is un-
American. Immigration, which is as American as apple pie, is part
of our national political conversation, and it is important to
highlight this subject to a broad segment of the public.
MidwestHumanRights, an immigration activist organisation has
produced a less-than-two-minute video
on this matter, we hope our readers will view it, and will pass
the link on to their friends and colleagues. As Congress prepares
to take up the challenge of Comprehensive Immigration Reform
later this summer, we urge Congress to heed the wisdom of Martin
Luther King who said "We are called to speak for the voiceless";
and to bring an end to this cruel system of detention.

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

(a) Dear Editor:
As approved by both the APA and MLA, the proper form of writing
the expression "god speed" is Godspeed (see 07/02/09 ID comment).
That is to say, God is capitalized, always, as one is referring
not to a god, but the God. Also, the word 'speed' is combined
with 'God' to form one, compound word. [See, "Godspeed" Webster's
Revised Unabridged Dictionary, 1996. See also, "Godspeed" The
American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth
Edition, 2005.]

(b) Dear Editor:
Speaking of how law-abiding immigrants are sometimes
disadvantaged when playing by the rules,  I remember when many
immigrants were allowed to enter on V visas to be re-united with
their family members in the US. The only problem was that many of
the visas were given to children under 21.  Under the law at that
time the V visa would expire when the children turned 21.  Many
stayed, and many left the U.S. because they wanted to obey the
law.  So what happened to those that stayed in the U.S. and
overstaying their visas?  They were eventually given another V
visa and work permit and allowed to stay in the U.S. until they
could immigrate.  What happened to those that obeyed the law?.
They were never given an opportunity to return to the U.S. on a V
visa and many are still waiting to immigrate.  I wrote many
letters to our representatives in the Congress and Senate, but
nothing came out of it.
