Search And Rescue

Within the US Border Patrol is a team dedicated to the search, trauma and rescue of agents, undocumented aliens, and the public along the border. The Border Patrol Search, Trauma, and Rescue (BORSTAR) unit, established in 1998, has grown to 194 agents. "Immigrant advocates find irony in the concept of Border Patrol agents as saviors - especially, they say, when the agency's intensified apprehensions have led migrants to use routes through deadlier terrain."

Dear Editor:
Responding to ID's (07/17/06) comment, what about all the "illegals" from Great Britain, Ireland and Middle European countries? It's funny how much Americans love the sound of British accents, but they don't realize they are coming here to get jobs and are sharing false SSN's and documents as much as any other group. But it get's overlooked because they're skin is white and they have those "cute" accents. Thanks for bringing up this point.

Dee Erickson

Dear Editor:
In the US there has always been remarks that the immigrants here are almost all Mexican or Latinos and this in reality is not the case. We the Latinos may be the biggest portion but the true picture is otherwise. Many people of different countries come in with the sole purpose of having a better life than what they left (07/17/06 ID comment). Yes, I believe we need some restriction but they are here already and have done well in their situation why not give them a hand?

Gladys Farris

Dear Editor:
I agree with Ali Alexander's letter (07/17/06 ID) stating that illegal immigrants have human rights, but that no immigrant has the right to enter this country without legal authority. I also believe that it is good policy to take human rights into account when enacting immigration laws as much as possible, even though it is admittedly not always easy to agree about what human rights actually mean. Making the effort, though, would actually increase respect for the law and, I believe, reduce illegal immigration, which is what all of us want to do. In my opinion, both the House and Senate bills are overweight on the side of draconian "enforcement" and underweight on the side of humanity and reality. I oppose both bills. R.L. Ranger's letter (07/17/06 ID) extols the virtues of "separation of cultures" and recommends a return to the pre-1965 immigration law, which was enacted in 1924 and was based on the long since discredited theory of biological racial superiority of Northern European whites to everyone else. Separation of "cultures" and biological racial theories were tried in South Africa under Apartheid and in Europe during a time that many people are old enough to remember, with catastrophic results. With all due respect for Mr. Ranger's right to express his thoughts, we do not need such theories in America.

Roger Algase, Esq.

Dear Editor:
Ms. Sanchez's letter (07/14/06 ID) appears to indicate that illegal aliens have a right to be in this country. They don't, and don't have this right to be "stripped of", else you can bet that ethnic lobbies would have had incarcerations and deportations in court as a violation of that right. In fact, it's very likely that those involved did get due process, and that deportation is the outcome. But I guess respect for the law, and its outcome is an alien concept (if you'll pardon the pun) to supporters of illegal immigration.

Ali Alexander

Dear Editor:
I think the best solution for illegal immigrants here is by giving temporary resident visas for 6 years. They must pay back all back taxes and welfare, pay fine, get documented and free of criminal record. Those who want to adjust status to be residents should provide excellent credit history, home ownership and be self employed and employ at least 2 other legal US residents. Those who pursue higher education or professional degree can be sponsored by their employers if no Americans fill the jobs, otherwise they should go back. US immigration should be based on merits and market based from now on instead of family relationship. Those who are still on welfare, renting homes and making less than enough for themselves should never be allowed to sponsor their families to join them here and then collect welfare after they immigrate. Parents of US citizens and legal residents should be given easy visitor visas with longer stay period as long as their sponsors are willing to take care of their welfare by providing shelter, health insurance, food while their parents in the country.
