I join Robert Gittelson in condemning the basic premise of Jim Roberts' letter (06/18/08 ID). The idea that one is either on the side of Americans or the side of immigrants is just as false as the "Protocols" and "Aztlan" hate propaganda touted in some of Mr. Roberts' previous letters. It is not only false, it is illogical. America is immigrants and immigrants are America. Mr. Roberts' letter is also raising a red herring by accusing immigration advocates of wanting to open America up to all of the world's seven billion or so people. Few if any people have suggested doing this. What immigration advocates are asking for are fairer, more flexible and tolerant laws and procedures that will give people who are contributing to our economy, both skilled and unskilled, legal and illegal, who have close family ties, or who who are legitimate asylum seekers, a more level playing field to enable them to stay here and become productive members of our society, without constantly moving the goalposts or driving them out of the country through inhumane and self-defeating "attrition". This was always our policy when most immigrants were white. Is this too much to ask now that most immigrants are not?
Roger Algase, Esq.
New York, NY
No, the letter of R. Gittelson (6/19/08 ID) will not be "confused with
acquiescence" with a rational, limited, selective and enforced entry
policy which is what America needs, not CIR amnesty which was tried in
1986 with the result of 20 to 25 million more illegals waiting for the next
amnesty when by devious design, the promised border enforcement and
employer sanctions failed to materialize. The RG letter can believe all
of the liberal designer polls printed by a liberal press it wishes, but
the American people have stopped CIR in it's many forms and will do so
again with a rapidly growing movement that will defeat the narrow,
greedy interests of the invaders, profiteers and Globalists. It is this
latter trifecta that is: "factually and morally reprehensible" and needs
to be condemned and repudiated for it's assault against America.
William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration recent article: "The
Proof is In -- Majority of Americans Oppose CIR Amnesty" says: "the
truth is a majority of American reject changing the current laws to
allow illegal aliens to stay in the US" and that 35 states passed more
than 1,100 bills in 2008 to deny benefits to illegals to promote self
deportation. Contrary to the assertion of J. Fitzgerald's leter (6/19/08 ID), my
letter made no mention of " what Jesus might do in regard to migrants in
our midst", only the fact that: "The teachings of Jesus apply to
personal behavior". But yes, Jesus seems to be "a fan of Attrition
through Enforcement" by honoring the law that would not allow mercy to
rob justice in supreme sacrifice to save sinners who believed. It's not
a simplistic matter of not liking people or "criminalizing work" -- it's
a matter of sustaining our society, honoring the Law and our nation's
Regarding Janet Fitzgerald's letter (06/19/08 ID): Jim Roberts's letter (06/18/08 ID) reflects the beliefs of most Americans.
The law of the land has already stated that the illegals are
illegal. They have already made laws that should be obeyed. To
regress our laws, means a collapse of public confidence, a system
of lawlessness. The american is to date, the greatest people on
earth having done more than any other country in freeing people,
shedding blood for demoracy. America has done
more to spread the gospel and humanitarian aid than any other
country and those the letter helps have done nothing other than
care for their own selfs. The letter's entire presentation is
full of flaws of logical, law abiding, patriotic, sentiments.
The letter cares not about America, Americans who worked righteously
to create the freedoms it so abuses. God forbid that His entire
Holy scriptures are scorned and misquoted. Under the letter's premise,
we should have felt sorry for Adolf Hitler and Japans concept
of taking over the earth and ruling the earth with Satan.
Our own elected leaders take a solemn oath to uphold the
U.S. constitution. The general populaton must decide if
they want lawlessness, corruption, a distribution of income
based on robbery of those who work hard to sufer. If the letter
prevails in its philosophy, the land will be full of lawlessness,
robbery. A complete
breakdown of social values and morality must follow.
No law enforcement,
police officers quitting because of unjust disputes,
no one knowing what is right and what is wrong.
No one having a reason to work for a living for fear
it will be taken away and given to those that are
not. Thats where we are now, one works and another
comes in and takes the fruits of ones labors.
