Immigration Book
"Immigration Crisis: Issues, Policies and Consequences" Edited by Paul W. Hickman and Thomas P. Curtis, Nova Science Pub. Inc., 202 pp. Paperback, ISBN: 1604560967, $77.05 http://www.amazon.com/Immigration-Crisis-Issues-Policies-Consequences/dp/1604560967/


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 Paul Good's letter (5/15/08 ID) has a hard sell with its claim that the US has "not yet started the slide toward economic disaster" with lost jobs and industrial base, record foreclosures, high cost of goods with lower wages, budget deficits as well as the apparent hope that large numbers of legal or illegal entrants can save the Ponzi based welfare entitlements. This dilemma is more realistically discussed in the Honza Prchal's letter (5/15/08 ID) and the PBS Study article (referred to in 4/09/08 ID article); "Managing Migration: The Global Challenge" which warned that: "Immigration has been raised to record levels and may soon veer completely out of control". It concludes: "By 2050 the country will wake up to its overpopulation hangover in the direst terms. With at least 200 million more added to our present 310 million, the rule of law, the social security system and all the legal benefits of today's America will seem like a distant dream". The billions foolishly spent on the Mid-Eastern wars would have gone a long ways in stabilizing Social Security. Irrevocably giving away the Country in order to "save" it is foolish and treasonous as is CIR. The only Reform that is needed is reduced legal and no illegal entry or amnesty schemes with adequate enforcement and no birthright citizenship. A more self-reliant populace with honest and frugal representatives wouldn't hurt either.

Jim Roberts

Dear Editor:
In response to Honza Prchal's letter (05/15/08 ID) said "As Rose and Milton Friedman acknowledged, we live in a welfare state that redistributes goods and services on a massive scale, and encourages rent-seeking by certain classes of people." The United States citizens own the United States and we are not prejudiced against the races of peoples from 168 countries. Allowing one race to illegally migrate and giving favor To one race, latinos, over all the other races of the earth, makes the US a racist country. Resistribution of wealth does not mean stealing illegally what does not belong to you. Rather the US is not a welfare state and when it does it shall collapse and the US among all the countries of the world is not racist, but the letter seeks to make it racist thru illegal immigration. The American citizen, historically, is the greatest people that ever walked the face of the earth, doing more for freedom and to erase racism that any other people. We fought and died for freedom and to stop racism. The letter's purpose is racism making one ethic group superior and stomping out any ability of the US people to continue its battle against racism.
