Dear Editor:
While we're dreaming about erecting "the Great Wall of America", 27 nations in Europe have abolished border control, adopt single currency and free market economy and let their citizens to move, work, live legally anywhere in any member states. Nobody is called as "illegal" immigrant anymore for doing so and 12 nations in South America are doing the same and in the early stage following their European counterparts. The results are lower costs of doing businesses for everybody, increased mobility of labor and capital, increased tourism since travelling is easier than ever and less red tapes, increased regional competitiveness and more bargaining power when dealing with bigger economic blocs or nations. If USA wants to make trade wars, it's not vs. 1 weak nation but 27 nations or 12 nations in one union. They are some spoiled people of course who are not happy with the abolishment of the national borders, but well, if ones are not happy with "illegal" immigration now they got the solution for good, no more borders and everyone are free to take up employment on the job markets and compete freely. Globalization is inevitable, and protectionists will be the sure losers, the citizens of the globe are tired of whining people who feel they may take anything for granted not based by merits and try to paint their competitors as criminals for offering better deals for less. Brazilians now can travel visa free and stay upto 90 days in Argentina and vice versa with national IDs only no passports, while we put hassles on Americans, Canadians and Mexicans for more red tapes. This is ironic and a shame.

Dear Editor:
My late husband and I set up a self help forum. We have written our own amendment to the CSPA as many children still age out and badly written and forward to Congressman Dave Weldons office who in turn has passed to Washington and a compassionate visa on a case by case basis.
