Dear Editor:
I was watching the news on tv saturday night, and the newscaster said that now if an immigrant married a US citizen, that the immigrant did not have to return to his country to wait for his paper work to be processed. Is that true?

Dear Editor:
I would love to give my opinion on the H2B cap being reached (1/10/05 IW). The program works for seasonal business. It is a great tool to grow our companies. I have successfully used the program for the past 4 yrs. We do not have the available workers in this country. We have built up the company and now we are faced with not having workers. We are not alone in the situation. This will will devastate many businesses and effect our economy in a negative way. The reform can't come quickly enough.

Dear Editor:
Some airports (especially in the NYC area) send holders of the ADIT stamp directly to secondary inspection. This is insane because nothing could be easier than punching the A number on the computer at primary inspection to verify the stamp is genuine. As it happens, tourists clear immigration faster than lawful residents. Just to give you an idea, there are hundreds of people in the secondary (first come, first served) are at JFK and you are not guaranteed to make a connection once in that area. It just does not make sense.
