Your Daily Issue

Some readers occasionally experience trouble receiving Immigration Daily. This can occur for different reasons. For example, email programs (Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo, MSN, Gmail) automatically send certain emails into your junk email folder because Internet Service Providers (ISPs) mistake it for spam. To avoid this, add Immigration Daily ( to your contact list or whitelist in your email program and mark the email as "not junk" to prevent future delivery of emails to the junk email folder. Adding to your whitelist confirms that messages sent by are desired and not spam. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) also maintain whitelists which they use to filter email delivered to their customers. You may need to contact your ISP directly if difficulty receiving Immigration Daily continues so that ILW.COM can be added to their whitelist of accepted domains.

Please note that ILW.COM stops your email delivery of Immigration Daily only when you specifically instruct us to do so. If you have not received your Immigration Daily (email version), try following these simple steps to ensure your Immigration Daily delivery.

Dear Editor:
R.L. Ranger's latest letter (07/24/06 ID) makes clear that today's "restrictionists" are not only worried about illegal immigration, but are also concerned with the effect of legal immigration on the ethnic makeup of America. I would ask those who, like Mr. Ranger, are opposed to immigration by people of different "cultures", if they can tell us exactly when they think that immigration should have been cut off in order to preserve "cultural" uniformity and which specific groups should have been excluded. For Benjamin Franklin, the "multicultural" threat was from 18th Century German speaking immigrants. I am sure that German-American Chairman Sensenbrenner, author of the House immigration "enforcement only" bill, would feel differently. During the "Red Scare" period after World War I, Italian immigrants were smeared as "criminals" and "terrorists". I doubt that Italian-American Congressman Tom Tancredo would agree with those slanders against Italians, even though he has no problem with spreading them against Mexicans. For the 19th Century "Know Nothings", Irish Catholics were the biggest danger to America. I am descended from Jewish immigrants, who were also the targets of hatred and prejudice in this country. Was it a mistake to let the ancestors of people like Congressmen Sensenbrenner and Tancredo, or of today's Irish-Americans, not to mention my own Jewish forebears, into this country? When they came here, these immigrants were considered to be just as "diverse", "multicultural", and "hyphenated" as are today's Latino, Asian, African and Caribbean immigrants. Was immigrant bashing only wrong when the targets were from Europe, while hate mongering is now acceptable at a time when so many immigrants may "look different" from the white majority? I look forward to learning more about Mr. Ranger's views on these questions.

Dear Editor:
Show me any person (white skinned, even speaking English) who is not legal and I will do my best to deport them as soon as possible. (1) Put a stop to abusing the Fourteenth Amendment. Foreign babies born to foreigners on U.S. soil are foreigners (2) A felony charge for illegal entry is not cruel punishment. It is only to enable swifter deportation (3) A felony charge and conviction is appropriate for employers who employ an illegal alien (4) Pay the Home Country a tuition fee to imprison persons convicted of crimes in the U.S.A. (5) Deport illegal aliens to their home town, but deduct that cost from any monies (aid) going to the Home Country. (6) Declare a Immigration Reduction on the Immigration Quota of any Home Country in some proportion the quantity of illegal aliens from that Home Country.
