Dear Editor:
There seems to be a problem when communicating to some attorneys via the internet, its either reluctancy, lack of trust and not believing in what one has passed forward,its either they disregard the information completely or take it for granted which is very hurting especially when its coming from reallife situation. i do not wish to accuse them of that,but let them develop a system whereby they can put their trust in and stop taking for granted communicated information.


Dear Editor:
The US has remained a beacon of hope for individuals of all nations under varying circumstances to land here safely, and in many cases to take advantage of legal immigration while present. The mother of the Salvadoran who died of cancer chose not to remain and returned home to her life and family there. I recall another case where the Honorable Judge Roy J. Daniel found that my client appeared to him to be 'tanned and healthy' after suffering a near fatal electrocution and hence deported his wife back to El Salvador after her years of legal parole to attend to her husband's health here in the USA. We welcome athletes from all nations who 'defect' here, particularly from communist countries like Cuba, with open arms. Of course, Olympic divers from the USSR like Djavadian were treated quite differently from the former members of the Soviet Red Army Hockey Team who received both swift approvals and Stanley Cup wins in Detroit. Is the question one of hypocrisy or of humanity? Should we lock the doors to all including your fiancee, your daughter-in-law, your Chinese orphan adopted daughter, or only to your undocumented tree trimmer who suffers a near fatal electrocution while trimming your trees? We as a nation have lost our soul. We have permitted terrorism to blind us to humanity, allowing some leaders and reactionaries to justify nearly any action in the name of security. These actions do neither guarantee nor assure your safety. We should be a nation of principles. We are certainly strong enough, rich enough and secure enough to make room in certain extreme cases to take mercy on an occasional basis to someone in grave need. Making our borders into the new Berlin Wall, complete with machine gun turrets and massive removal gulags, will certainly snuff out the beacon that once led to the USA and will proclaim the ascendance of our new soul to the entire world.
