Dear Editor:
Sadly, President Bush's just released "Fact sheet: Comprehensive Immigration Reform: Securing Our Border" (04/26/06 ID) offers absolutely no suggestions on how to accomplish comprehensive immigration reform, but is just more political rhetoric - a self serving, politically correct position statement, heavily loaded with statistics. In reality, this "Fact Sheet" is just more rattling of stones in the tin can of immigration, resulting in nothing. Once more the Bush Administration attempts to side-step an issue of utmost important to the future of the US, by seemingly taking a position, but in fact doing nothing - just like has been done with Social Security Reform, tax reform health care for the elderly, and solving the many other problems that exist right here in the US - beginning with the quick and efficient rebuilding of the hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast. Of course, the US does not have the money to rebuild itself - all the money is going to Iraq. When will they ever learn?

Dear Editor:
This is in response to AILA President Deborah Notkin's letter to AILA members in Thursday's AILA Immigration This Week email about the May 1 planned boycott. I appreciate the need for AILA to do the "politically correct" in the eyes of the establishment. As a long time member of AILA I will refrain from invoking AILA's name in vain. However, I strongly disagree with AILA's position. Decades of accommodating attitudes have done nothing to assert the political and social presence of immigrants in this country. While I am not espousing violence I am only too aware that it is only through confrontation that significant and meaningful change occurs. We need to impress on the powers-to-be the consequences of ignoring and dehumanizing millions of people. Let them get a taste of what this country would be without us. Let them be aware that the oppressed will only kneel for so long before lashing out against injustice. I am disappointed that AILA is taking such appeasing stance. It reminds me of the proverbial poor soul trying to serve both God and the Devil.
