Dear Editor:
I somewhat agree with Sid Lachter's letter (08/31/07) that David Utterback's spelling and grammar can sometimes make his letters difficult to understand, but I can overlook this, since I often agree with him on various points regarding immigration. On the other hand, I find Robert Yang's letters to those of an idealistic globalist who doesn't believe in national borders and national sovereignty - which is worse? It is unfortunate that we have to listen to the ranting of such extremists ... where are the "normal" people that read Immigration Daily?

Dear Editor:
Apparently, David D. Murray, Esq.'s letter is unhappy with non-English language job requirements and wants to outlaw them in California (see 08/31/07 ID). His letter states, "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". In the spirit of this statement, I don't want to be told I'm not qualified for a yummy lawyer job in the good old US of A because I can't speak a legalese language.


Dear Editor:
Our constitution reads: "We the People of the US, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the US. Open boarder pundits try to break this republic's sovereignty by such disengenuous word usage as: human rights, nation of immigrants, broken laws and then try intimidation, when that doesn't work, its threats to sue sovereign states and then there is the interference of Mexico (who doesn't want us to interfere in their sovereignty, said by them) All those trying to steal our American dream will find the majority of this country is and will fight back to protect this dream for our children and their children. No one has the right to walk into your house (by the backdoor) eat your food, watch your Tv, take a shower, use your ID and complain your credit-card balance isn't high enough and tell you, there not leaving.

Dear Editor:
Responding to Mr. Murray's letter (08/31/07 ID), I fully support English as the only official language of the USA and all public admistration and forms should be in English only, including driver license tests at all DMVs in this country. English only policy will save so much taxpayers' money, simplify beauraucracy and encourage full assimilation of immigrants. We need to print booklets or signs for foreign tourists in a lot of places of interests for their convenient, but those who wish to be Americans must speak, write, listen English fluently or willing to do so. I also bother me that in Chinatowns many signs are written in Chinese without English translation. We need a strict law that will require all signs in public places must be in English with other languages translation if the owners wish to do so. I am a Chinese American and I fully support Mr. Murray's letter. But we must also demand that Spanish, Mandarin, Japanese and French should be taught in our public schools since elementary as elective subjects. We must learn as many important foreign languages as we can particularly our biggest trading partners. multilingual Americans is a key to make sure we stay competitive above other nations and we may less worry about job outsourcings since we can work with ease globally.
