Future Of Immigration

Tamar Jacoby of the Manhattan Institute points out the historic significance of the immigration bill being debated in the Senate: "The immigration deal the Senate produced last week is far from perfect, and its critics, left and right, make many valid points. But much of the criticism misses the forest for the trees. Left out of the debate: the historic scope and significance of the deal -- its ambition to deliver an immigration system that grapples with globalization and the choices it poses for America."

Dear Weekly Editor:
After reviewing the new Immigration Reform bill last week. I feel it is very insane program. We (legal alien) came up to the US legally for studying and paid tripe prices more than Americans. However, there is nothing that we can do in this new reform. We just want to get a legal status to work paying taxes, buying houses, living the US for our life legally. However, nobody care about us even we have spent hundred thousand for our life, our own insurance, our own expense. What we want is to getting a legal status to work to live in this country. How come enter illegally just paying $5000? This is only our half semester tuition. Are we rich?? No way! We just want to work fairly in here! Thanks for listening.


Dear Weekly Editor:
Regarding Ron Monks' (IW 5/21/07) letter, that was his wife's individual decision, God does not create all people alike or else everyone would have the same strengthnesses & weaknesses & no one would be crossing the border illegally. Some just happened to be financially capable to travel to another country & also financially able to sponsor their spouses and their children also. There are people that exist that are also financially worse off & have no recourse. The term "lawbreaker" is in the eye of the beholder. We could take this debate back to colonialism & say that the Spanish, then French, then English were lawbreakers & border crossers by claiming an entire country that was already claimed by Native Americans. We could also carry the blame back to the US & European powers that helped contribute to the devastating economy that several Central & South American countries, as well as the Caribbean experience today & have since colonization (does the United Fruit Company ring a bell?). Besides, when it comes down to survival, I think no law exists that will stop humankind from trying to survive.


Dear Weekly Editor:
I have to say I agree that many of these anti immigrant advocates don't realize that if such a law were in place when there ancestors came here they might be in a total different situatiuon and maybe even one of the many who want to get in however it takes. I would also like to know were bm has retrieved his information that many of the undocumented immagrants are hiv positive and feeding of medicaid? It sounds like a desperate attempt to grasp staws that may only be a figment of ones own imagination. Further more I just think it is hilarious that we are so against people who want to work. Are we aware of how many citizens we have in this country who don't want to work? What if we were to make a trade off? would that make the situation better for all. I am a single mom of five who is single handedly putting my way back through school, Where is the childrens father? He is one of those bright and righteous american citizens who would rather be housed at county expense then pay a single red cent child support! I have been divorced for two years and not a cent So I say bring the ones that want to work and not just from mexico any where heck my family line does not originate here on my mothers or fathers side. I am a law abiding proud american. And I rather live with people who are trying to do something to better their situation. Then empty our jails send them to the countries where there is no work and don't allow them or the gun toting drug dealers in. then maybe the system can balance itself out.
