Comment: Letters To The Editor - Throughout the 10+ years of history of Immigration Daily, we have always welcomed letters from our readers. We have published the letters we received regardless of whether they were pro-immigration or anti-immigration, and regardless of whether they were praising or criticizing us. Some readers have expressed reservations about our recent format of publishing the letters, so we are trying a new experiment to address some of the concerns raised.
We invite all letter writers to simply email their letters to us at We will post the letters as we receive them at a single place for the whole week called "Letters of the Week". We expect that this will make it easy for letter writers to have a conversation with other letter writers, and make it easy for readers to follow the conversation. If they so choose, letter writers can post directly to the "Letters of the Week" page by "posting a comment". We hope that this new "Letters of the Week" will make it easier of both letter writers and readers to engage in spirited and wide-ranging discussion on immigration related topics. You can make your letters as long as you would like, your letters will not be edited for length. Please see this week's Letters of the Week here and send us your comments/letters to
