Immigration Dividents

In the winter of 1956-1957, 300 Hungarians fled as their revolt was crushed by Soviet Tanks and found refuge at a small college north of New York City. Their fifty year union reminds us of the long range benefits of immigration.

"Those eight weeks at Bard College so many years ago generated dividends that the United States is still collecting. Out of that passel of adrift newcomers emerged doctors, engineers, and scientists, including two leaders in the treatment of eye disease, Laszlo Bito and Frank Holly; a third, Sandor Holly, who developed an early laser; and a fourth, Charles Legendy, whose theories contributed to plasma generation used in making computer chips."

National Interest Waivers for Physicians
Gregory Siskind, Esq writes "This week, USCIS released a memorandum implementing the 2006 Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision that ruled that several USCIS regulations governing physician national interest waivers were "ultra vires". In other words, they reached farther than what Congress intended. The memorandum also made other critical changes that are discussed below. "

Dear Weekly Editor:
How about the ones that have already been deported and left children behind? What is there chances of ever reuniting with their families?

Kemi Idowwu

Dear Weekly Editor:
Your article suggesting a similarity between the Anne Frank tragedy before and during WWII and the current iflux of illegal aliens. Sorry, I see no similarity, but it WILL strike some feeling in those of The Jewish Relgion. The US had and has a quota for immigrants. I personally do not agrre with Jewish immigrants being denied as they were. Whether the powers that be knew of Adolph Hitler's intentions, I do not know. If there was anti-semetism involved, I also do not know. I DO know that the Jewish people sought to immigrate legally, under US laws. The Mexicans and others of today are another story. They are not politically motivated to come to our country, and will not be exterminated by their country for being Mexicans if they don't. But they chose to ignore our laws, many more than crossing the border illegally. In my opinion, hardly a just comparison, and in my opinion an open minded thinking person of the Hebrew religion could, and should be offended.

Ken Roberts

Dear Weekly Editor:
Please, what happened of being proud of being an American. You are blaming our Government for what happened to the Frank family in time of War and for them being number 301,000 in the list. That was a horrible situation not only for Ann's family but for numerous families due to the situation and the actions of an insane person. Stop blaming the United States for the unfortunate situations of millions of individuals around the world that decided to come to the United States legally or illegally. Tragic situation? Yes. The United States responsibility? Never.
