Dear Editor:
I echo the sentiments of Mr. Sanchez's letter (01/06/06 ID), as immigration attorneys are simply greedy middlemen between the illegal aliens that are desperate for work and the employers that exploit them. It is about time Congress woke up and realized the devastation illegal immigration is causing this country and removed those pro-immigration provisions.


Dear Editor:
Rob Sanchez's letter (01/06/06 ID) is another display of the pathetic efforts made by people stuck in the past to protect their undeserved income. They fear competition and try to push for protectionist measures that won't save them. Jobs not filled cheaply will simply move abroad or be discontinued. Further, the U.S. worker, especially the low income one, will pay for price increases in services and basic consumer staples such as food. The rich, with disposable capital, will follow the highest returns and make even more money. Conversely, they should go out and show some entrepreneurial spirit in a country that offers basically full employment conditions and unlimited opportunities to make money. Obviously, these conditions won't last much longer if they keep pushing for soviet-style measures that attack the laissez faire spirit. After the defeat of communism almost two decades ago, comrade Iosif Vissarionovich Stalin is making an anti-competitive comeback at the House of Representatives as a faade to cover the scandals plaguing the governing party. The age of the long-term waged employee is gone. They need to understand that this would have happened with or without foreign workers.

Washington, DC

Dear Editor:
In response to Mr. Sanchez's letter (01/06/06 ID), the letter writer was once an immigrant himself. One of his ancestors came to America for the same reason that today's immigrants are coming for a better life. And they are willing to even move to a different country to work for a better life. They sacrifice and leave everything they ever knew in there life including their family. The sentiments of your letter do not represent that of all Americans.

An immigrant from nowhere

Dear Editor:
I thought Gary Endelman's review (01/04/06 ID article) of the Sensenbrenner bill (HR 4437) was very well written and hit all the pertinent points. The article's candor concerning how "inside the Beltway" immigration lobbying has been done in the recent past was both much appreciated and saddening.

John West

Dear Editor:
If H.R. 4437 were enacted hundred years ago, the USA wouldn't be USA as we see today. How many previous immigrants really got passports, visas, approval and blessing from the native people who were in the Americas first before they came there? Without them, they would be all felons and subject to fine, detention and deportation. Ones should thank God, this evil legislation didn't exist when their immigrant ancestors were in the USA at that time and in the position of "lack of documents" even unwelcomed by the native or fellow immigrants who didn't like them due to increase competition at that time. H.R. 4437 is not really saving US jobs and wages. More businesses will outsource jobs and use robots and automated machines to cut labor costs. The more the USA is being protectionist, xenophobic and self alienating, the greater the backlash from other nations as well. Mexicans will join other Latin American nations like Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia which don't really like Uncle Sam and form a greater alliance with China, E.U. and Russia. If anybody still thinks US citizenship is the ticket to take anything for granted, they'll be disappointed and embarrased later on, because they're wrong. Nothing will protect one's job security except ones own merits and skills to market them.
