Dear Editor:
Obviously, New York Mayor Bloomberg wasn't paying attention after the last amnesty was granted. The problem wasn't "solved" and won't be solved by another amnesty. Anyone with a single functioning braincell knows that rewarding people for breaking the law does not discourage other people from breaking that same law. If it did there would be no need for another amnesty because there would be no illegal alien problem. I noticed that there has been no response to the individual who asked when, if ever, there will be justice for those people who follow the rules yet wait years to get their families here. These are US citizens but there are no letters to the editor of the New York Times or front page stories about these people. Also, I would love to know where the information comes from that is trumpeted from the rooftops that illegal aliens only take jobs that US workers won't do. With the unemployment rate at about 6% I seriously doubt that a US worker would turn down a job such as the airport worker who was recently arrested for using false documents. I know many people who would love to make the salary she was making. Actually, I know where the (mis)information comes from. It comes from those who will do or say whatever necessary to get what they want, another blanket amnesty. Of course this will need to be repeated in the next 10-15 years because by then we will have millions more illegals who were encouraged to sneak across the border knowing full well someone will lobby for yet another amnesty to "solve" the problem. There is an old saying, "those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it". Does anyone see a pattern here?
