Dear Editor:
With regard to Tim Houghtaling's letter (09/13/06 ID), I have the greatest respect for his service in helping to keep out potential terrorists. But to what extent is the current movement for immigration "enforcement" really concerned with protecting our security, and how much of it is merely a pretext for persecuting minority immigrants who may speak languages or belong to "cultures" that some Americans don't like? Clearly, there are people who have tried to enter, or who have entered this country, from Mexico, Canada and many other places, who mean us no good. As other ID letters have pointed out, there are also some people who have abused the H-1B and other visa programs, as has been the case with every other government program that has existed from the beginning of time. Ask Halliburton. But should we end all immigration, because some bad guys may try to get in or cheat on visa programs? Should we pull out of Iraq merely because some of our contractors there may be ripping off American taxpayers? Would deporting 12 million men women and children who show no evidence of being terrorists make us safer? These questions are especially important in view of the strong likelihood, mentioned in the 9/13/06 ID comment, that supporters of HR 4437 will try to attach some, or even all, of its draconian proposals to a "must pass" appropriations bill, as was done with IIRIRA ten years ago.
