Dear Editor:
I think the H-2B cap should be lifted. The result of this cap is going to make the illegal immigration situation worse, not better. Our local economy is going to suffer greatly from this, since not only does my employer count on our Mexican workers, but so does the seafood, hotel, and countless other hospitality industries. We have been using the H2B program successfully for 8 years, during that span we have continuously ran job ads in the local papers. Only 2 people have ever responded, and neither one of them showed up for the interview. We have a very strong relationship with our workforce that comes from Mexico, the future of our business is in jeopardy with out them.

Dear Editor:
Is it true that if an immigrant marries a US citizen they do not have to go back to their country to wait for legalization? Please tell me where the bill stands right now in Congress for amnesty for the illegals who are already here.
