Dear Editor:

Thank you for publishing Congressman Tancredo's speeches to Congress on immigration. The member from Colorado has certainly stated simply what Congress needs to do to begin solving the situation of massive US immigration. My opinion is that 90 percent of Congress has ignored the nation's most pressing problem in favor of their own banal speeches, which, if not curtailed, will bore so many citizens to an early grave that only immigration will save the US from a recession. Tancredo is spot on by suggesting all immigrants must be able to speak or learn English, for without this skill, US corporations and small businesses will continue to exacerbate the immigrant low wage syndrome. Massive immigration can be easily handled by means of simple ID technology with guest worker and repopulation programs. Congress needs to authorize worker or visitor visas to first meet the needs of industries that want foreign labor. Permanent residencies and citizenship are not needed in this instance as most immigrants will have the propensity to return home if US trade can improve economies in their countries. When trained in the US, these guest workers can eventually return with their skills and US technology to their own cultures. Congress members must immediately survey their own backyards for constituent and media input on how much immigrant assistance their local economies need.
