Dear Editor:
By all means adopt the techniques of we "anti-(illegal)-immigrationists" (see ID comment 3/31/06). But remember, when I email my Congresspeople, I can truthfully telll them I am a voter, and that I won't be voting for them if they support amnesty or "guest worker" programs. I guess illegal aliens, who have no hesitation about entering illegally and working illegally wouldn't let a little thing like lying stand in their way.

Ali Alexander

Dear Editor:
Thank you for the tip to use "nomoreamnesty" 's lobbying tips (see ID comment 3/31/06). It burns me that they've got a burning candle as their "Save the American Worker Week" logo - it is similiar to Amnesty International's logo. I'll use their tips and I hope we're turn things away from their point of view. How sweet.

Aetna Thompson

Dear Editor:
I believe that we need illegal immigrants as well as the legal ones. I do not know how our country could survive without them. They are very hard working people. We would not have fruits and vegetables in our markets if it were not for them. I believe our country needs them. I please ask anyone to support this bill.

Danielle Wasden

Dear Editor:
If this called guest workers bill is passed by Congress, it would allow millions of illegals to stay in the USA. And, through which our country is going to be benefited economically. I firmly hope that Congress passes this bill.


Dear Editor:
This session of Congress seems to be producing some good amendments on immigration. Some of the agenda looks very good. However, what the Senate and Congress are looking for is unrealistic because the work these immigrants are doing is not in the professional field but low labor. It is manual labor providing low pay and no health insurance. Native Americans prefer going on welfare than going to work. The economy is fully functioning because of the nonimmigrants. Nonimmigrants who came as children and now are in college should be given a chance for a better life than what they have now.
