Dear Editor,

The advent of the new V visa is an attempt by INS to legitimate more than one million undocumented aliens living and working in the US. At first on reading the report on this web site, it felt like INS were heading in the right direction of wanting to legitimize this national overhang of lost souls, in the sense of INS becoming a service, under the Bush Administration plan to split the "agony and ecstasy" agency. But my guess is INS will not offer due repentance to these million lost souls, because on reading further, my interpretation of the V visa, while offering a form of legitimacy, will in effect merely maintain the mountain of paperwork bureaucrats revel in. In my opinion, these souls need a simple nonimmigrant visa stamped in their passport to work seasonally in the US, pay taxes, come and leave whenever and raise families in their home country or in the US. These undocumented workers or spouses represent the nation's prosperity in providing on-call labor, which citizens shy from. Permanent residency should be repealed by Congress, because INS has turned it into an ungodly mess. It should be replaced with dual citizenry with visa waiver countries, to expedite the flow of labor and technology.
