Dear Weekly Editor:
It doesn't make no sense, when congress passing all kinds of laws against immigrant even taking away their driver licences, how in the world they can recruit immigrants in militery? It is such a contradictery. When these American born citizen don't like to die, congress bribe these immigrant to give them citizens and to their families if they die for a nation, do you think they really like to die for USA? Or they are getting bribed to take care of their families not to suffer and get papers to live here. It is really a shame when those are here for yrs and yrs and can't get driver licences, can't work legally and all of a sudden someone ready to die in millitery who is immigrant, will be taken care with rest of his family, thats hypocracy and unethical.

Dear Weekly Editor:
I was deported by USCIS in 2005. I have 2 Masters Degrees and an MBA. I am a business consultant specialized in IT systems implementation and in particular workflow management via business process re-engineering. ICE got a call from someone who wanted me out of the country and my visa just happened to be expired. I was jailed fot 5 weeks before being put on a plane at my own expenses. Deported for 5 years. Now I hear Homeland Security needs IT implementation advising. Excuse me, but I have to laugh. My story is all true and it shows how stupid the system is.

Dear Weekly Editor:
There is a serious matter developing in Utah with an immigrant who died while in prison. The family is here from Mexico trying to find out what is going on. Conflicting reports have been issued. I think that this would be of interest to your readers. Thank you for this news service. It has been very helpful to our student organization (Harvard Immigration Project) as it has been a means of contacting groups such as ourselves.

Dear Weekly Editor:
Following hints can improve the USCIS backlog mentioned in your comment (IW 1/8/07). Allow to file I-485 when the visa numbers are not available & in that way employees will not file their labor as well as I-140 from multiple places. This will reduce work load. Allow to transfer labor as well as I-140 when the company has lay off’s.
