Dear Editor:
I would like to comment on the letter from Mrs. M Johnson who appears to hate lawyers due to some harm or injustice caused by a lawyer at some point in her life. Her criticism of immigration attorneys is misplaced and should be directed at the current system of laws. Immigration attorneys are very good at getting their clients what the law provides: citizenship, permanent residency or other benefits. They deserve to be paid for their services. Does Mrs. Johnson have a problem with medical doctors who make money off of sick people? What about car salesmen making money off of people needing transportation? These individuals also provide a service to people and make money by doing it, and the vast majority do it just for the money. The vast majority of immigration attorneys are very concerned with upholding the laws of the U.S., just like most accountants seek to conduct proper audits, Arthur Anderson notwithstanding.

Finally, since she threw in the God card, I cannot resist commenting that the greatest advocate/lawyer is Jesus Christ who will represent Mrs. Johnson on her Judgment Day (See 1 John 2:1 and Romans 8:34). But, then again, she wants to kill all the lawyers. . .
