    Economic Impact Of Undocumented

    The Texas comptroller has issued a report on the impact of
    undocumented immigrants on the state budget and economy that
    concludes "The Comptroller's office estimates the absence of the
    estimated 1.4 million undocumented immigrants in Texas in fiscal
    2005 would have been a loss to our Gross State Product of $17.7
    billion. Also, the Comptroller's office estimates that state
    revenues collected from undocumented immigrants exceed what the
    state spent on services, with the difference being $424.7 million"

    (a) Dear Weekly Editor:
    From the response to some recent letters to the editor I can only
    think that many of your readers condone illegal entry into the
    United States. Do they realize that they may be aiding and
    abetting a criminal when they are aware of and overlook their
    illegal status?

    Ken Roberts
    Springdale, Arkansas

    (b) Dear Weekly Editor:
    I can provide the place to stay for a Brasilian guestworker if
    the job is near Orlando or Longwood, FL. Is that a possibility
    or do they have to be Mexican? Is the program flexible enough
    for that kind of sponsorship or do they require proof of a large
    bank account on the part of the sponsor like they do with the
    sponsor for a student visa? Can it application be done in
    Buenos Aires, Argentina where he is working now?

    (c) Dear Weekly Editor:
    To our Maryland Political Leaders. Please stop forcing Maryland
    to be a magnet for illegal immigrants by giving them drivers
    license. You are endangering our community ! Give Marylanders the
    gift of life and safety. Please comply with the 2005 Real ID Act.
    It would be nice to sponcer a bill/law called the Mathew-Bower
    bill, which would put Maryland in compliance with the Real ID act
    with out any back door ID cards or drivers permits for illegal
    immigrants. The name would honor the two American / Maryland
    citizens who were killed by a illegal immigrant this Thanks
    Giving. Please comply with the 2005 Real ID Act so no more
    Marylanders are killed like our young Marine killed on
    Thanksgiving which is not an Isolated case.
