Organized Labor And Day Laborers Unite

According to a New York Times news report, "The A.F.L.-C.I.O. and the nations largest organization of day laborers signed a partnership agreement yesterday intended to help the languishing labor movement tap into the potent energy of the immigrant rights movement ... The partnership connects the labor federation to a network that largely represents illegal immigrant workers who often have run-ins with the police as they stand on street corners soliciting jobs." For the full story, see here.

We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by writing to editor@ilw.com.

Letters

Readers are welcome to share their comments, email: editor@ilw.com (300-words or fewer preferred). Many letters to the Editor refer to past correspondence, available in our archives.

Dear Editor:
The trio of letters (8/10/06 ID) in response to mine of (8/9/06 ID) could be Exhibits A B & C as to it's validity. They certainly made prophets out of Joseph Sobran who pointed out the frequent and specious charge of "anti-semitic" by some and by Albert Einstein who said, "The solution of a problem should never be left to those who have created it". Has one read the disturbing, "Takeover of America" comments by 15 Reconquista subversives like Art Torres and Armando Navarro found at the CCIR website? Or perchance, read how the Mexican invasion is unlike any past migration in, "Multiculturalism, Immigration and Aztlan" at the diversity alliance website by Maria Hsia Chang, a professor of political science? I stand by my statements as any search would prove out despite phony charges of "hate, discrimination and prejudice". The hyperbole about a police state is just that. We live with that now to the extent that law enforcement and prison systems operate in our society in needed areas. Most entry violators would/should be deported, some voluntarily, and prison would be a last resort option as is the case in other criminal law. And any blame for the present mess or complaints about prisons or police states is because of excessive numbers in the past, not restricted ones. Ms. Millendez's letter relates more to the "true immigration attorney" or ethnic enthusiast rather than any true American. The "jus soli" concept has been abandoned by my most nations and is of old feudal origin. The more common "jus sanguinis" principle would preclude US birth citizenship by illegals. Under existing law, any scheme other than deportation for illegals is amnesty. It is the business and special interests that want S. 2611, not true Americans.

R. L. Ranger

Dear Editor:
This is in response to Alannbert Millendez's letter (08/10/06 ID). The letter says that the Senate passed S.2611 does not provide amnesty, but although word 'amnesty' is not used in this bill, the spirit of this bill is to legalize all the illegals presently living in the US. Therefore, this bill can be regarded as a kind of amnesty. If this bill becomes law, it is sure that there will be another 40 million illegals in 20 years' time. Furthermore, the letter says that the bill recognizes that coming here to America illegally is unacceptable and will not be tolerated, but the existing immigration law also clearly says that coming to America illegally or overstaying visa is a crime. This crime should not be forgiven by simply paying a fine. Punishment for crime must be made in accordance to the existing law of the same time when the crime takes place.
