Dear Editor:
I just thought I'd let you know that we see this all the time at Eloy (see 08/30/07 ID comment). I have seen two native born US citizens in proceedings for months, one with his original US birth certificate and ID. One ICE alleged that he was a "native and citizen of unknown" because they had no evidence he was born anywhere other than in Texas. This has implications for any human being in the US who does not have ready access to a birth certificate or passport. Just thought I'd share.

Dear Editor:
With all due respect to David Utterback's letters, I have to wonder whether other people find his letters as incomprehensible as I do. At least his letters now correctly spell "illegal."

Sid Lachter, Esq.

Dear Editor:
I am amused, if not frightened, by help wanted classifieds ads that require fluency in another language other than English. Employers cannot discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, but language is not a protected class, so I guess it us OK to have language requirements in Havamiami, just as they do in Mexilangeles, where in the court system many clerks speak Spanish. As a job requirement? If so, no discrimination here - only educational restrictions, no education in Spanish, no job. Todo esta bien. Twenty-eight states have adopted English as their official language and California is not one of them. It appears California politicians know which side of their tortilla the butter is on. America has not adopted English as its official language, although India and the Philippines have. Ironic, no? Does the UK have an "official language"? Evidently not; I can't understand a word those Scots say. Or the Welsh either. The official language of Little Saigon, in the city of Westminster, California, must be Vietnamese, because everyone there speaks it. In Los Angeles' Koreatown, it is Korean and Chinese for Chinatown. But you know I'm pulling your leg. These aren't "official languages," just languages of choice, just as in Miami and LA. Well, my language of choice is English and I don't want to be told I'm not qualified for a job in the good old US of A because I can't speak a foreign language. Unless, of course, that job is translator.

Dear Editor:
Immigration Daily, I thought, was supposed to help honest people. ID's comment (08/30/07 ID) criticizing the government for deporting 2 people; one a drug dealer and the second a document fraud case, advocates helping criminals. Why don't you stick to helping honest people; they have a hard enough time as it is. By advocating drug dealers and document fraud, all you do is hurt the innocent people trying to work with the system.

Michael P. Schmitt

Dear Editor:
Thank you for Ms. Boque's support on my letters. Responding to Mr. Utterback's letters, why do only Americans deserve their "American dream"? The UN universal declaration of human rights and even US constitution mention that every human beings have right to pursue freedom, happiness, safe haven and prosperity. Americans should be free to trade their skills, services and goods to others and get the best compensation in this planet, so Chinese, Mexicans, Ethiopians, Europeans, Japanese etc. Why there should be laws to deny my right to shop best deals for less and to hire best people for my business for less just because we have to please some special interests that feel they don't have to compete by merits on the level playing field. Will we be happy to pay USD 5 to drive on toll turnpike with proud but expensive Americans collecting money from us or pay USD 1 on the same turnpike but we use automated toll fee collection instead? Or flying coast to coast for USD 700 because airlines must pay all human labor from booking to boarding or USD 200 because they want us to self serve and deals with machines and computer? This wish comes with some extra costs, are we willing to pay for them? If not, please no complaint about job outsourcing, immigration and automation.
