< Back to current issue of Immigration Daily < Back to current issue of Immigrant's Weekly

Dear Editor:
Who would you consider an "anti-immigrationist"? Someone who proposed a "temporary worker" program requiring "guest workers" to return to their country after 3 years? Bush does. Someone who knows that the current backlog for green cards numbers several million and that adding yet another legalization program will further delay by years processing for those already in the queue? Bush does. Someone who knows that without enforcement of our immigration laws, we will continue to have massive illegal immigration, which harms not only citizens but LPRs, who must compete for fewer jobs with ever increasing numbers of immigrants, and see wages remain stagnant. That our August employment number of 144,000 new jobs, a recent high, is below the 150,000 needed just to keep up with population growth, much less to put the unemployed millions back to work. Bush does. Someone who denies that the fundamental immigration system needs overhauling rather than patchwork quick fixes which only make matters worse? Bush does. Or, someone who believes that immigrants should be welcomed, as long as U.S. citizens do not need to subsidize their presence. That immigration should be legal and orderly, and that the responsibility for the immigrant's well-being should lie with himself and his sponsor, be it his family or employer. I do.
