< Back to current issue of Immigration Daily < Back to current issue of Immigrant's Weekly

Dear Editor:
I've read the Denver Post article on Jesus Apodaca mentioned in Monday's issue of Immigration Daily, and I wanted to express my opinion. For informational purposes, I am a native-born US citizen and I am not employed in any position involving immigration.

In Mr. Apodaca's case, Rep. Tancredo certainly appears petty - there are plenty of illegal immigrants more deserving of his time and attention. However, being petty does not prevent him from being right in this situation. As in this case, any illegal immigrant stupid enough to allow his name and picture to be placed on the front page of a newspaper (or published at all) deserves a good hard look by the INS. Mr. Apodaca has stood up and said that not only is he breaking the law by living and studying in the US, he deserves in-state tuition and financial aid. This shows even more hubris than Rep. Tancredo has shown on this matter.

Aliens who choose to live, study or work in the US illegally are law-breakers - plain and simple. Mr. Apodaca is in the same class as a brilliant thief - a very smart person who is breaking the law. It's about time that we start enforcing the law by deporting any illegal immigrant that comes to the INS's attention, no matter how that happens. Letting this young man remain is a slap in the face to all legal immigrants who went through the major effort required to follow the rules.
