Dear Editor:
G. Chell's letter is right on point in using the word "gulag" to describe the prison system which would be required to incarcerate all of the people who would become criminals under the House immigrant persecution bill. In addition to the estimated 10-12 million people who have entered the country illegally or overstayed visas, many millions of legal immigrants would become criminals because of technical immigration violations such as reporting an address change one day late. Any US citizen or other person who employs, advises, helps or merely fails to report any of the above immigrants would also become a criminal. Assuming that for every illegal immigrant or technical violator, there is only one US citizen who helps such a person or fails to turn the person in, a very conservative estimate of the total number of "criminals" under the House bill would be 30 million, or one tenth of the US population. However, the police state features of the Sensenbrenner bill do not end here. Businesses, churches, schools and hospitals would be subject to raids by local police looking for immigration violators, people would be stopped at street corners and arrested if they didn't have the right papers, and US citizens who looked or sounded "foreign" would inevitably be caught up in this web of totalitarian terror. Just because politicians like Tom Tancredo and J.D. Hayworth don't like to hear people speaking Spanish, is it worth saying "Adios" to our freedom?

Roger Algase, Esq.

Dear Editor:
Mr. Alexander's letter (08/08/06 ID) argues for erring on the side of least harm. I think the least harm would be to provide a legal path to the illegal immigrants maintaining their job placement in society and the status quo. This would also encourage unskilled citizens to gain a better education taking them off direct competition with 'low-skilled' illegals who are taking jobs like construction hands, farms hands, hand maids, etc. If we decide to adopt the 'restricionist' strongest views, we would end up forcing our free market business to go to other countries and set-up production and processing since labor, unskilled and skilled, is cheaper making their business easier to operate and remain profitable overseas. I believe the least harm is to provide a lengthy legal path for the 20 million illegals to become recognized residents rather than force away the businesses out of America and pull the US economy south of China's rapid rise as an economic giant. From this global viewpoint, it is easy to understand which is the least harm.

Alannbert Millendez

Dear Editor:
"Bravo" for the superb article by Peter Brimelow (08/07/06 ID Article). His quote by Larry Auster is especially appropriate, "They think that because they come from immigrants, their sacred mission in the universe is to crusade for open borders and deny any ability on America's part to have any say about who comes into this country". Some Jews and Mexicans by their actions show they are desirous of destroying traditional America and others are not. True restrictionists seek to do "whatever it takes" to refuse entry for, or to deport the former and to provide limited entry for some of the latter, and to support order, enforcement and assimilation, not chaos. And that's what prisons are for, for those who will not abide societal parameters of preservation. The creed of El Plan Espiritual de Aztlán that calls for "reclaiming the land" as their "inevitable destiny" or the radical Muslim desire to exterminate the "infidel" can not be misconstrued. It is hardly "bigotry" to oppose such. The native Indians did not control immigration and their culture was radically changed, and not for the better. We are on that same course unless we severely reduce and enforce entry as Peter Brimelow, Samuel Huntington, Lou Dobbs, Tom Tancredo, J.D. Hayworth and others wisely advise, as well as support of H.R. 4437 and abolishment of the birth citizenship by illegals. True Americans will no longer stand for those with other agendas to dilute or destroy US. Beneficial cultural changes can only happen with restricted, enforced entry, not illegal entry rewarded with undeserved amnesty in any form.
