Dear Editor:
I agree with just about everything Gary Endelman wrote in "Declare Victory And Go Home: The Solution To Illegal Immigration In America," although I would keep the DV lottery (I like the concept of some independent seeds, wild cards so to speak) and I would move up the Registry date. Precisely I would immediately, 1. Remove from section 101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(B) of the INA of the word "temporary." 2. Repeal section 214(g) of the INA relating to numerical limitations on certain nonimmigrant categories. 3. Amendment section 249 of the INA (the "registry" provision originally enacted in 1929, amended a number of times, most recently in 1986 setting the date at 1972) to set a date certain of 15 years for individuals to be able to avail themselves of this provision of the law. (Registry is a good "clean up" provision for those who slip through the cracks.) 4. Repeal of 212(a)(9) INA (which in practical terms applies primarily to citizens of Mexico and was first added to the law in 1996). I'll leave it to Mr. Endelman to outline the long term reform of the Family and Employment Immigrant categories.
