Dear Editor:
I wonder how well it would go over if the legal profession were outsourced? I'm sure there are some facets of immigration law that can be done offshore? Can't be just IP?

Dear Editor:
While I am certain Guillermo Hernandez's (01/11/05 ID) heart is in the right place, he must understand what we "old timers" have discovered by observing immigration trends over the past thirty years. We tried an amnesty in 1986. It didn't work - there are more illegals in the US today than there were in 1986, despite the employer sanctions that accompanied the passage of that amnesty legislation. In fact, the first question from illegals who did not qualify for the amnesty in 1986 was "when will the next amnesty be?". The 1986 Amnesty Program clogged both the immigration system and the federal courts for twenty years. While some illegals do pay taxes, using phony social security numbers, but don't file tax returns like legal residents and citizens must, Mr. Hernandez grouses about them not being able to collect refunds, as though we law abiding citizens should somehow take umbrage to the sacrifices of the illegals. Hogwash. President Bush's plan may, as Mr. Hernandez states ". . . make it easier for foreign workers to come and work", but they will not "return to their homes", as Mr. Hernandez suggests in the first part of his letter. The last part of his letter is correct, however, wherein he flip-flops and states, ". . . immigrants are already here and have no intention of returning to their homes." You can't have it both ways. The proposed Bush Guest Worker Program solving any problems is a myth. It will only serve as an immigration magnet and legitimize breaking the law in years to come. Disrespect for the law diminishes us all. We must ask, and require, foreigners, as well as citizens, to respect the laws of our nation. If you disagree with a law, work to change it, but don't violate it.

David D. Murray, Esq.
