Dear Editor:
Regarding the scripted, but very clarifying interview with Mr. Cheney, one has to answer to the first question with a sound yes. Someone asks the VP, "Why should we give millions of people in our state a break for a prima facie breaking of the law? Is there any other country in the world, including Europe and Latin America, that would do so?" yes. In many countries amnesty has been exercised towards otherwise illegal immigrants, most times broadly, sometimes applicable specifically to one immigrant category. As examples we could point to Portugal in 1992 and 1996, Brazil in 1980, 1988, and 1998 (all immigrants without complications with the law benefited), and many others. Voila: Europe and Latin America. The big difference here is the extent of the current American situation; having dealt so poorly with immigration for so many years, US legislators now face a huge, although not unsolvable, problem. However, it is nave to believe that millions of undocumented immigrants would apply for the new temporary workers' visas, exposing themselves to a deportation three years later. We need a permanent solution to the problem, not a means to facilitate deportation police work.
