Dear Editor:
In response to the letter to the Editor about outsourcing jobs to India (and elsewhere). We live in the Midwest, and in the state where we reside, dozens of computer professionals flocked here (this month, too), appearing and purchasing computer software books below our level of experience and ability, not skills we lack as one often hears. Ergo, many available jobs in the US are still going to non legal permanent residents (LPR) and non-US citizens (USC). We like diversity. We like helping others. We welcome non-immigrants and immigrants coming to the US, as either we did or our grandparents or great-grandparents. However, we would really appreciate just one job interview, even if the pay is low, for one of these IT jobs. Another letter, the third, states that asylees obtain legal permanent residence after just one year from obtaining asylee status. Unless there is a special adjustment to LPR for Cuban asylees, only "refugees" can file to adjust within 1 year and actually adjust to lawful permanent resident within approx. another 2-3 years. Asylees can file after approx. 1 year too, but the backlog due to the 10,000 per year quota on adjustments to LPR means not adjusting to LPR after just one more year, but applying to adjust, and then waiting, and waiting, and waiting. They are legally here, and it is no "day at the beach," either.
