Dear Editor:
Mr. Murray makes a rhetorical "tongue-in-cheek" remark asking "if one, why not them all?" Rhetorical or not I have to reply. If a person qualifies for asylum then, by law, he or she is supposed to get it. It appears that Mr. Murray misunderstands asylum law or maybe he was just kidding. Either way, not every "malcontent" or "mistreated" person is eligible for asylum. Only people who have been persecuted, for specific grounds, who cannot, for some reason, avail themselves of the protection of their government, are entitled to claim asylum. Providing asylum is a legal obligation of our country by virtue of international treaties and the constitution. I agree with Mr. Murray that the immigration laws need to be reworked. But as it is our legal obligation to provide asylum seekers who qualify safe haven in the US we canít start there. Perhaps less H visaís would be a start as we have no legal obligation to have an H visa program. Then the overworked people in the service centers could work on the backlogs in other areas.
