Make Sure You Get It

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are combating spam through a variety of filters and blocking software to trap emails before they even reach one's email inbox. The upshot is that many ISPs are incorrectly categorizing legitimate email as undesired and preventing these emails from ever reaching your inbox. If you are experiencing email delivery issues, your ISP may have blocked Immigration Daily delivery. To reduce the chances of this happening to you in the future, please add Immigration Daily ( to your email program contact list, mark the email as "not junk" or add it to your "white list"--whichever is applicable. This lets your ISP know that you want the email delivered and reduces the chance of it being blocked. In spite of this, If you do not receive your Immigration Daily issue anytime, please contact the customer service of your ISP to report the problem and let us know of the problem by writing to

We are pleased now to make these DVDs (together with extensive printed materials) of these workshops available to attorneys across the country. For more info, please see:

Dear Editor:
Predictably, the debates about 'immigration reform' have already lapsed into a discussion on how to further limit and elminate the rights of immigrants. Early on, Senator Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) has proposed to do away with certain aspects of judicial review. In his words, "Current law allows aliens to run to the steps of our country's courthouses and take advantage of our system." I'm not sure how using the courts to ensure that the government doesn't abuse its power or trample someone's rights is 'taking advantage' of our system. That's exactly what the courts were set up for. Moreover, as the Board of Immigration Appeals writes more and more "affirmed without opinion" decisions, the rights of non-citizens are increasingly at the mercy of sometimes all-too-abusive Immigration Judges. If anything, the appellate courts are needed more now than ever. Let's not forget that the Supreme Court has said that "the Due Process Clause applies to all 'persons' within the United States, including aliens, whether their presence here is lawful, unlawful, temporary, or permanent." It's bad enough that our Supreme Court needs to clarify that 'aliens' are, indeed, people. People deserve due process no matter where they come from, or what passport they carry. Proposals that eliminate judicial review simply eliminate rights that are supposed to be "unalienable."

Dear Editor:
Wow. The reaction to the compromise immigration bill astounded me, as well as the shell-shocked politicians who are now starting to feel the way George Bush feels everyday. They're now miserably unpopular. Sen. Chambliss from Georgia was booed on stage at a Republican convention a few days ago. Sen. Graham from South Carolina was also booed this week. Jon McCain, that foul-mouthed wonder-child from Arizona, has slipped below Romney (who is against amnesty) in the polls. And then there's poor Sen. Kyl, the formerly popular Arizona Senator who, if he'll just stay out of Arizona for his personal safety, will get off easy with a re-call election. What do all of these politicians-on-life-support have in common? They are supporting a solution for illegal immigration that runs absolutely counter to the will of the majority of the American voters. And the will of the majority always prevails. The smart Senators will secure the borders and allow the slow reversal of the illegal immigration glut through attrition with the simple enforcement of the laws on the books.

Dear Editor:
As long as I have been in this country I have had to pay taxes. When my parents died we paid over 50%. Most do. Why should immigrants who came here illegally get a relief? My parents worked hard and I am tired of these immigrants who are saying their sad story. Do you know that in my 40's I cannot afford health insurance? If I go to an emergency room it will only go on my credit history. How can an illegal immigrant have a bad credit history? They don't have a SS#. Let demolish the SS# and let us all start free. How can you come to this Country with out a SS# and get a credit card? We have to prove in our life that we are responsible to have one. Why don't Mexicans demand more from their Country and petition better pay? Why is ok for them to depend on us? Here's a suggestion you want in go to Iraq like our American soldiers are. Serve four years, then bring your family in. Show some support.Maybe our country should say you want in then join. Risk your life like our men do. Speak English. I struggled to write and learn English. Why should you be here and not speak the main language? I use to come home from school and practice writing English. We are asleep here and it shows. When my daughter was in high school in Boca Raton, Florida she had to wait two month for her books while they provided books for illegal immigrants. I want to explore where and how these people in our government came to be. We should look at this as Americans. I think our Congressman, Senators should go to the borders for their vacations. I truly pray for my America.


Dear Editor:
The public in general has very knowledge of immigration and their procedure. What the public knows is what is written in the newspaper , tv or radio. Information is scattered and sometimes misinform. Why is the public so gullible? This happen because the public relay on these three entities. The truth should be written or said at least part of the time even if this is not what public wants to hear.
