Manuel Felix's letter makes a good point. It is deplorable that illegal aliens would benefit under the Bush administration's proposals, while legal workers who are contributing to the US and their US employers in high to mid-level positions get the shaft. Which brings to mind my last letter to the Editor, wherein I commented on the Immigration Daily editorial that appeared in the June 2, 2003 edition of Immigration Daily, entitled "Why the law should be broken".
While it does not appear that Mr. Felix is using his sad predicament as an argument against reinstituting 245(i), or even an general amnesty, his point is well taken that it is lamentable that the Bush administration is blindly concentrating their efforts in the immigration arena on illegal immigration reform, aimed mostly at Hispanics who they believe will reward them with votes, instead of focusing on the bigger picture, that of total immigration reform. As I have said before in letters to the editor, we need solution, not rampage and division. To paraphrase the above-mentioned Immigration Daily commentary, "The ball is in Congress' court." Let's hope they don't drop it ... again.
