Editor's Note: the following letter refers to a letter to the editor which appeared in the November 23, 2001, issue of Immigration Daily.

Dear Editor:

Michael D. states in his letter that supporters of amnesty are Democrats. His comment implies, at least to me, that he believes all Democrats are supporters of 245(i) and amnesty. NO SUCH THING.

I'm a lifelong Democrat (until last fall's election) from a heavily labor state. There are plenty of Democrats who DO NOT FAVOR AMNESTY for illegal aliens. As with Republicans, it's largely the politicians and union leadership who want amnesty for their own ends. Unfortunately, the rank and file, like most of America, really don't realize that amnesty is even being considered--and if they do realize, there are more immediate and personal concerns than immigration.

As with other issues, it is those most dramatically affected by the issue (illegal immigrants, their attorneys, politicians, etc.) who are most organized and active in pushing their agenda. The rest of us have generally had other issues to concern us and other places to donate our money.

MA
