Dear Editor:
President Bush's remarks about immigration (see 03/22/06 ID), to anyone knowledgeable about immigration matters, reveals the president's personal naivety and remoteness from even a modicum of understanding about what is needed in US immigration reform. The president's knee-jerk rhetoric merely spouts conveniently contrived buzz word rhetoric, with which staffers have obviously primed him. This shallow mind set seems to mirror the president's recent simplistic claims that the US is "making progress in Iraq", while continuing to refuse to recognize that there is an untenable civil war going on there, despite the constant and repetitive daily killings by separate and distinct religious/political factions in that country, and notwithstanding that prominent Iraqis throughout its government agree that, "If this is not civil war, then I don't know what is." Thank goodness the election year is not far away. In the meantime, perhaps the President will heed ID's editorial suggestion (03/21/06) and convince Mexico's president to send troops to Iraq in exchange for an immigration deal with the US. Perhaps a fusion of immigration and Iraq war ideas will interest President Bush ... if enough Mexicans are killed in Iraq, illegal immigration to the US may be diminished - the old "kill two birds with one stone" idea (no pun intended). While such a preposterous idea may make sense to the President, and who knows, perhaps to Immigration Daily, I wonder how will it play in Peoria?

Dear Editor:
I am wondering whether ILW.COM intends to schedule a seminar about the difficulties people have in completing certain parts of form 9089. For example how do you complete the education part if the FN has a combination of degrees and not just one degree? Also, what if you only want alternative experience and not experience in the job offered. Do you have to post the job order 30 consecutive days or can you post it 20 + 10 days... what is a business day.
