Letters to the Editor

This letter is in response to the editor's comments in the February 22, 2001, issue of Immigration Daily.

Dear Editor:

Links provided in your column on this website on 22 February should be bookmarked by every immigrant with access to a computer. The numbersUSA link produces an invaluable Senatorial record on immigration voting issues. I urge everyone to e-mail their federal Senators constantly with personal INS issues so that Senators can grasp the intensity of issues in conforming with bureaucratic immigration laws. To my understanding, the whole US immigration issue is about the paranoia of the economy and does not address the needs of immigrants or citizen/alien spouses who are the future and advancement of the nation. Brief your local Senator via e-mail with an issue that troubles you about becoming a permanent resident or US citizen so that chaotic immigration laws can be known in the Senate.
