Dear Editor:
I believe the record should be set straight regarding O.Sanchez's letter stating that Chucky in his letter, proposes to ban the H-1B visa category. Chucky in this letter was expressing support for my opinion that certain family based categories should be eliminated (Chucky made no reference to H-1B's). I am not aware of Chucky's opinions on the H-1B, but my previous letter went on to expressly advocate the easing of restrictions on the H-1 employment categories, not eliminating them. Like O. Sanchez, I oppose the concept of another amnesty in the wake of the failed 1986 Amnesty Program, that at the time of its inception was designed and touted by its supporters to be the beginning of the end of illegal immigration to the US, through the provision instituting employer sanctions. Employer sanctions over the past twenty years as a means to end illegal immigration have not worked, the Amnesty program of 1986 did not work, and in my opinion, Amnesty in any shape or form will not work to the betterment of our American society. History has shown us that what Amnesty 1986 did do was to severely overburden the Family Based visa quota system to a breaking point from which in twenty years it has still not recovered. In this election year, let us not turn immigration into a political football for the sake of garnering a few votes, by offering special interest groups the promise of a brighter tomorrow, rather let us clean up the broken immigration system mess in a way that benefits the economy and people of the US, while maintaining homeland security in these troubled times.
