Dear Editor:

I find the arguments of Ms. Christine Flowers published in Immigration Daily on March 13 are inaccurate and illogical. On the one hand she has accepted that she is not condoning the actions of overstay of the aliens in the United States, but on the other, she has welcomed Section 245(i) saying that this should become a permanent part of the INA. This shows that she is encouraging foreigners to overstay in the United States, affirming that overstaying in this country is not illegal. Therefore, I felt that I also might take the liberty of expressing my opinion saying that to violate the law of a country is regarded as illegal, and those foreigners who are living without valid visas or are overstaying in this country are illegal aliens. The person who violates the law of the land is also considered a criminal. Many aliens from different countries are serving time in prison in South and South East Asian countries for violation of the law by overstaying in those countries. Being the most democratic and free country, the United States has not taken stern actions on these illegal aliens. Consequently, they are cashing in on the soft policies of the United States. As I see it, these illegal aliens who are overstaying in this country should be deported immediately. There are hundreds of thousands of honest and qualified aliens waiting for immigrant visa number patiently to enter the United States to contribute their good services to this country. I don't see that the United States has to depend on these fraud-committing and dishonest illegal aliens.
