Dear Editor:
I have to say, Chucky's position is simply ridiculous. To try and say that a serial rapist who is here in violation of immigration law is representative of all people who are here in violation of immigration law is about as logical as saying all Arabs are terrorists, all flight students are terrorists, and that Saddam had something to do with 9/11. Now, that seems like something RL Ranger would certainly say. It appears that he believes that immigrants are a terrorist threat as well as a threat to our social fabric, (although that might only be those from Mexico). He also says that "the desires and pocketbooks of foreigners, globalists and excessive immigration advocates should not come before those of US citizens." That's really a good point, the problem is, how does he know what the desires of the US citizens are? I don't mean his "secretinvasion", John Tanton - FAIR American Patrol following folks. I mean regular Americans in the middle. It appears they don't seem so concerned since they keep electing officials, both democratic and republican, who vocally state that immigration and immigrants are important to this country. And every once in awhile, these elected officials write a law like 245(i), which is not an amnesty in any way shape or form, but which merely allows people who are already here, who have qualifying relatives or employers, to adjust their status to that of a permanent resident while in the US, rather than having to travel abroad to do the same, which would cause them to be separated from their families for lengthy periods. 245(i) is the kind of law that shows the US is a country of compassion and humanity. Now these officials aren't tossed out on their ears after they write the law, they aren't vilified in the media, and there is no great outcry from US electorate. Seems to me that this is the best representation that we have of what regular folks want for this country. In fact, many US citizens marry people who are overstays or even undocumented people, and they do not hang their heads in shame while walking down the streets or hide in their homes for fear of attacks by the angered populace, this also makes it pretty clear, at least to me, that there isn't much stigma attached to this at all.
