Dear Editor:
I do not ignore or downplay the problems with today's green card system, that's precisely why I suggest companies urge its reform, rather than pushing for more H1-Bs. In the 1980s and early 1990s, organizations routinely did sponsor employees for green cards before they started work. Several of my academic colleagues easily received them in less than a year. It can be done. In fact, it is programs such as H1-B which have contributed to the problems with the green card system. When the H1-B cap was raised 4 years ago, Congress and others were fully aware that the system could not handle the processing if even a fraction of H1-Bs applied for green cards. Since many more than that do, we have our current problems with the system. Companies have come to prefer the control H1-Bs give over employees to immediate green card sponsorships. The latter are actually in the best tradition of a free market for labor, they let the employee compete immediately in the labor market on equal terms with Americans, and to seek market salaries untainted by the specter of uncertainty over green card sponsorship. The fact is, H1-B has long since passed from being only for the "best and brightest" in a time of temporary labor shortages, and has become a program companies routinely rely on for plentiful, somewhat educated or skilled (face it, bachelor's degrees mean little these days), relatively cheap and compliant employees.

Dear Editor:
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to talk with a person that applied for relief for agricultural workers. She received a card and some other documents, and was told to wait for a letter from INS. After two years of not hearing anything, she decided to move to another address, but she never reported said change. I know people who applied under that chapter who received their card; but my question is: Is she still able to go to the Immigration offices and rely on documents issued so long ago? Or does she risk deportation? She asked me, and I told her that I would ask Immigration Daily. I did not have the time to review her dossier. Can somebody help this woman? She is a hard working person, with her own business.
