Dear Editor:
Robert Yang's letter (08/31/07 ID) asks Why do only Americans deserve their "American dream"? Robert's letter states 'their dream'. Our country is like our home. Its more important than our car, because its 'ours.' How is it theres not a Latino dream, a Cuban dream, a Haitian dream? Its our country, our dream. Yang's letter states its 'our' dream, then how is it, it not our dream. I guess we've fought for it thru innumerable wars since 1620 to 1773 and thru a civil war, The French Indian war, WW1,WW2, VietNam, to the present. Why isn't it our dream. We suffered a lot thru the depression, and now we've had some good years since World War 2. When we're suffering, no one wants the American Dream, but when theres abundance in the land, everyone else wants the fruits of our labors, our sacrifices. Those who think we didn't all suffer during the depression, World War 2. Where was everyone when I grew up. We had not one fan in 100 degree summer heat, we had no car, no TV. Actually people in third world countries live better now then we did during the 1950's. Your premise of equality, to to allow people the freedom to not be oppressed. They died for their kids, their families, and its a disgrace to see people degrade the American in the name of some perverted defination of equality. Everyone wants the gravy when the US has affluance, but when we're broke, suffering depression, massive war, then no one wants the American dream do they? Only when theres money do people come flocking for the money we've sacrificed. I never see any people coming when we were in World War 2. I was just a little kid and I do remember well.

Dear Editor:
I agree with Robert Gittelson's letter (09/10/07 ID). This time we have to be heard to be in support of the Strive Act and also to raise the Registry date (please read excellent article by P.J. Patel, tittled Undocumented Aliens! What are we going to do about them? (08/27/07 ID). Suggestions are welcome on how we organize an online petition.

Dear Editor:
I personally find this country a humiliation regarding immigration. This country should had already passed the immigration law regarging all the illegally immigrants. I myself am ashamed of this the poromises that were lost to all these people who are human just as well of us.
