Dear Editor:
In her letter (1/24/05 IW issue), Trish Schlegel wrote that, unless the H-2B cap is lifted, she fears the "local economy" may "suffer greatly". That's exactly what the tourism industry in Maine said this past summer when they realized that the H-2B cap was finally going to be enforced and had been reached. They predicted catastrophe and a "lost summer". Instead, the figures show that they had an excellent summer, perhaps one of the best ever. Maybe it would be more productive if the businesses concerned spent less time and energy wringing their hands and trying to recruit foreign labor and spent more time and energy trying to recruit some of the 14 million unemployed within the US.

Dear Editor:
If I am married to a greencard holder can I stay in the US until I receive my greencard? How long does it take to receive my greencard? Would I get a work permit after we are married?
