Dear Weekly Editor:
Higher education in the U.S. is indeed pathetic. White men who have engineering degrees
are replaced by graduates from India . India produces four million master degrees per year
and they are all targeting the United States for employment and are sure to get these
jobs, because they work for less. Also, the corporation I worked for, abolished hundreds
of top computer related positions, and sent all the work to India . Now in the Philippines ,
more and more call centers are opening up, doing telemarketing, phone work that was
done in the United States . So, my wife’s cousin, a white in the U.S. was a computer
engineer and his job was sent to India .
Why would a U.S. corporation, controlled by foreign stockholders who care nothing
about the U.S. pay more to an American who has student loans to pay back
when they can get cheaper, master degrees from India and Southeast Asia . When I
was working for a U.S. corporation, I saw American white kids, Indians, Philippinos
go up for an interview. The white kids came down looking defeated, while days after
those from India and The Philippines went to work every day. America is money.
Those money masters of America , who own 80% of all U.S. businesses from
Shopco, the many chains of restauents along the highways, the huge oil business,
and practically everything from auto parts stores, to grain companies, and even
all those plants in the rural areas are owned by foreigners, who could care less
about Americans and even less about the millions of illigals they maneauvered to
being into my country illigally. Even the U.S. marines, were turned down by
the owners of U.S. discount stores in its collection of 'toys for tots.' So, the
days are not over when our Senators, are mad about foreign investment and globolization.
Being without jobs in the U.S. is just a by product of globolization, which is just the
opposite of protectionism. As Mr. Yang, states, we must compete, and as I read
the Washington Post article, I'm thinking my children are in a third world country,
cause our country favored Illigals over citizens. So, I guess, its a free for all in competetion
and whatever country can take your jobs, is right on now. Then too, when the DREAM act
is passed, becuase of all the articles saying they won't begin the draft, means they will.
So, now, we see the white school populatoin having more problems as the white citizens
have no future. So, as I see the senerio unfolding, there will be more and more civil unrest.
Now the crime rate has jumped drastically to 7.6% by the latest FBI reports and Hispanics
and blacks top the charts for serious crime. Doesn't look good and in 15 years Hispanics
will comprise 1 of 5 residents, as blacks do now, so now we'll have 10% of the population
committing the majority of serious crime. This is what happens when big money bought
congress and lobbyists bought state legislatures drafting statutes that favor only the
foreign rich. So, based on the massive rise in crime rates, we can project in 15 years, that the
U.S. will begin looking more like Iraq and the elected officials again, will look the other way.
The new numbers released by the FBI support what neighbors are saying.
From 2005 to 2006 violent crimes in the city rose 7.6 percent. Robberies are the main reason for the spike. They are up 24 percent. Can anyone refute that this is the trend and this is what must happen.
So, thank the rich foreign owners and your congressmen for nafta, allowing illegals in the
country by the millions, cause this is the result that must happen.

Dear Weekly Editor:
Let me start by saying America is the land of opportunity, freedom and hope.
The primary reason people come to this country and go through a long
screening process to be a US citizen is to accomplish this dream. Let's not
forget other than native Indian we or our forefathers were immigrants some
point of their life. If you go back to history they came here to start
something that's full of hope. Also back in history the British, Portuguese,
French and many more started to invade different countries for business
opportunities and took their valuables and left them with pretty much
nothing. They didn't build any infrastructure, education system or anything
before leaving this colonies. US is at least trying to build an
infrastructure to the countries they are invading, still that's not enough
as they are doing this only to the point we get benefit for Oil and stuff.
US is the world leader now and they offer the life no one else can at the
moment. I know it's heard to make a living here in US but at least you have
work if you want to. Look at third world countries, they can't get any work
even if they want to. May be we don't have the best education system up to
High School but we have the best colleges and Universities. Wouldn't you
want your kids to get the best education and life style if you can? I would
go through the extra trouble to give my kids a better life.
I do agree with security concern with all the recent activities in US and
overseas. But do you honestly think a kid that grew up here since 3 or 4
will love any country other than his own. This is their home. Where would
they go if we decide to give them up. Also the current immigration laws
makes it harder for honest and hard working people to have a life here. Even
a person with clean background, always legal has to go through USCIS maze,
it's not fare. They take so much in fees at least they can do is give us up
to date information other than just "if your case is not updated in the
recent case procession, we won't let you know nothing". We should treat
USCIS like any other business so that people at least get to know where they
I think US immigration process needs to be restructured. Lets look at a
simple situation with one of my friends "He got married after dating a women
for 2/3 years. she is US citizen and he's on F-1. She was the sweetheart
everybody would want. he applied for permanent residency and case pending.
Now she started to know the immigration maze. Guess what she realized she
got him by the balls and started to make his life harder everyday. Think
about this guy he had a H-1 application that he didn't submit, and he can't
do it until next year. He spent all these money for the wedding ceremony,
buy house and stuff, then paid all that money to apply for residency. Do you
think it's fare?" I know you have the option to do a waiver when it comes to
removing condition but what if you didn't even get your conditional
residency. Can he at least get his money back, that would be no. Well USCIS
needs to hire some lab rats so that they can actually experiment real life
Bottom line, you can't just deport someone who lived here for quite
sometime. paid taxes, did everything legit other than being a illegal
immigrant. i know they are saying nothing is legal if you are a illegal
immigrant to begin with. i do not agree with that at all.˙˙˙
