Dear Editor:
I would like to see a more intelligent conversation regarding these issues. I am interested in learning from comments and points of view of intelligent people on both sides of the spectrum regarding immigration issues. It seems that Chucky's letters rebut everything no matter what and no matter how. He suggested on response to my previous comment, that another option for illegal immigrants who live in the US is to deport all of them. If anyone has an idea (realistic idea) of how to deport almost 20 million immigrants from a lot of different countries I would be interested in listening to it. I can't imagine a viable possibility of deporting every illegal immigrant short of an ethnic or racial cleansing, kind of like the Jewish Holocaust, Kosovo, or Sudan. Even if it was possible to deport all of them, who is going to fill in all those jobs that unfortunately Americans don't want to do? In addition, Chucky's letter (1/21/05 ID) does not consider some of the children of these immigrants who were born here and are therefore American citizens, regardless of their parents' status. The solution, unfourtunately, is not as simple - the government has to find a way to reform the system without violating civil and human rights and without burdening American citizens, businesses, industries, etc.

Dear Editor:
Could I get a copy of the DOL instructions to SWA about no longer handling of Alien Labor certifications as Perm would be published, I believe it appeared in Immigration Daily in October or November 2004.

Dear Editor:
My opinion is to help the ones who are here. Some of them missed the amnesty and yes, more immigrants are waiting for the next amnesty. The ones who have been here for years. Some of them came at such an early age and never got their paperwork done. Some of them don't even speak their native language anymore and they only speak English because they have been here so long. Some of them are married to US citizens and their kids are US citizens but not the other spouse. What is going to happen to the other person who came here early age illegally? Go back to their country not knowing language,no family back home. I don't think it's right to hurt their kids and spouse. All they want is to live here legally and work legally and stay with their family legally. They want to be free, make their dreams come true. Some of their dreams are to become US citizens. What's wrong it that?
