Deporting Citizens

It appears that ICE doesn't have enough to do and has begun to deport US citizens, recent examples include: Duarnis Saul Perez and San Juanita. When the rights of US citizens are continuously trampled by errant ICE officials, all of us need to demand accountability and an end to this unacceptable behavior.

Dear Editor:
Once again Robert Yang's letters are the voice of reason. Keep writing, and hopefully those deaf ears in Congress will pick up the message before this country's economy is completely destroyed.

Susanna I. Bogue, Esq.
San Francisco, CA

Dear Editor:
Responding to Gladys C. Farris's letter (08/29/07 ID) and The American dream, I point out, in a senerio, (1) lets say all American citizens just evaporate (2) illegals take their jobs, lobby, stirke, and get higer wages (3) they become citizens, high wages, good benefits (4) the administation's main goal is low wages, so they bring in 10 or 20 million people from China, Africa. Now the illegals now legal paying high taxes, can't afford a new car, vacation, but their kids fighting in Iraq, dyring like flies (5) in comes 20 million illegals from China, Africe working for the wages that the Latino illegals were making before they got the American dream (6) repeat, repeat and repeat. You see why this American Dream won't work, if it doesn't work for citizens who;ve been here for generations, shedding blood for our flag, taxing unreal taxes, taking wage cuts for globalization and illegals. This is a helecopter view of the whole senerio. Can't you see, why bringing in tens of illegals won't attain the American dream. The whole purpose of the administrations bring in cheap labor is to undercut the American dream. Do you really think if the illegals replace the citizens now, that its gonna stop. No way.

David Utterback

Dear Editor:
Yes, I know that in the justice arena we are "suppose" to be equal. Are we? If we are poor not in a high position job or Political position and even worst illegal then the law slam its force in today's justice. Why? Because justice is not as it is painted blindfold but to do what is best for publicity.
