In response to yesterday's Editor's Comments, you suggest that immigrants come illegally because the legal avenues are overwhelmed. One might ask, and why are they overwhelmed? Because immigrants have been coming illegally, then have been given amnesties and mini-amnesties (TPS, 245i, etc.)--which, of course, enable them to sponsor yet more family members, who then come here illegally because they don't want to wait in line, either. While the INS certainly bears a good portion of the blame for this mess, let us apportion the remainder where it is due: to Congress for piecemeal immigration laws that favor those who jump the queue over those who wait patiently.
