Dear Editor:
Kristie Brightman's letter (ID 2/17/06) is a disgusting example of blaming the victim. Her letter is deluded and naive in its belief that US immigration enforcement is never brutal. Her letter ignores the fact that the victim's husband was reported to have a pending asylum application, which virtually always causes the government to hold off on enforcement against other family members. Her letter ignores the fact that Congress and administrative authorities and organizations from left to right have frequently decried the barbaric "one child" policy in China and have tried to put into place laws specifically designed to protect families like this. Her letter ignores the fact that two children were effectively murdered. Her letter ignores the fact that US immigration authorities are very inconsistent and often outrageously too strict in denying asylum applications, in contravention of American and international law. Her letter ignores the fact that the woman was being forcibly separated from her two US citizen children. Her letter ignores the fact that one of the most important commands of God is to treat the widow, the orphan, and the foreigner with justice and compassion. (That command comes up over and over in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim scriptures.) One wonders what could possibly make Ms. Brightman's letter so mean-spirited and judgmental.

Bruce A. Hake, Esq.
