Dear Weekly Editor
Responding to letters by "an immigrant" and Lalit Dama (05/08/06 IW), I wonder if it's occurred to these illegal aliens that their problems are of their own making? Had they immigrated legally from the start, then they or theirs would not be in the binds that they are now. We do not need amnesty to find out where illegal aliens are. We have social security mismatches and ITIN numbers to help us with that. We also have a pretty good idea in what industries they're most common. We do not need to "give" Social Security numbers to people who are in this country illegally, nor should they be receiving other forms of official identification such as driver's licenses. When it comes down to it, illegal aliens are trying to extort legal status and citizenship from us, just as the marchers have done the past few weeks, with implied warnings about what might happen if we don't give them legal status. I'm frankly more worried about what would happen if we do.
