Picture Is Worth 1000 Words

The Feet To the Fire rally held April 22, 2007 was an event organized by anti-immigration activists to demonstrate America's desire for a tough stance against immigration reform. According to the Federation For American Immigration Reform, the rally "drew people from around the world demanding action to secure US borders, enforce its laws and make English its official language." A photo taken of the event by a demonstrator shows about a hundred protesters, a far cry from the immigrant marches that were attended by hundreds of thousands. Based on this picture, the anti-immigrationists's position that their anti-immigration views are widely held by the American public, is on shaky ground, proving the old adage: a picture is worth a thousand words. The anti-immigrationists are vocal to be sure and certainly make their presence felt in American polity. However, as this much ballyhooed event shows, they are in a tiny minority. Congress will be acting for the vast majority of Americans in ignoring the anti-immigrationists and enacting CIR.

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

Dear Editor:
I agree with Ali Alexander's letter (04/25/07 ID) that his proposal to legalize illegal immigrant children but exile their illegal parents for up to ten years is a bit punitive, especially in the case of very young children. Perhaps one might be willing to extend one's feeling of compassion just a little further and agree to some sort of proposal which, instead of exiling the offending parents, might merely have them publicly flogged or caned?

Dear Editor:
Here we have another case of an honest cop being railroaded at the request of Mexico (see 04/25/07 ID). The local representative of the Mexican Government, Cochise County prosecutor Ed Rheinheimer, has set up quite a laundry list of charges to subject the officer to. To quote him "A judge will determine which of the charges the evidence supports best, Rheinheimer said." I have a feeling that it is more a case of what the judge can stomach… If he is in the hire of Mexico ... he'll go for the toughest charges he can… if he is an honest judge he will find Rheinheimer in Contempt of Court for bringing a frivolous case before him. There was a surveillance video of the incident which was originally used in the Border Patrol investigation which shows the shooting, by Officer Corbett, of the attacking illegal alien. Somehow it got 'leaked' over the weekend. Its pretty clearly self defense. What other cop would allow a civilian to brain him with a rock without defending himself? I'm pretty sure that this note will never see the light of day, but I would be interested in a response from someone. Are there any lawyers who are more interested in upholding the Constitution & seeing our nations Sovereignty & laws upheld rather than just "making a buck?"
