Immigrant Movement Birth

In a follow-up to the successful flower power campaign, Immigration Voice is making plans for a Washington DC rally Tuesday, September 18th (for information, including how to participate or volunteer, see here). This march is notable because it is a grassroots, bottom-up effort. The march is to promote immigration relief for legal immigrants and it follows the model of Gandhi and Martin Luther King in its peaceful advocacy efforts. Immigration Voice is the first real immigrant movement in a half century. The top-down Washington DC immigration groups as well as employers of legal immigrants do not appear to be involved at this time, however, we hope to see them support this historic immigrant movement.

Dear Editor:
In ID's 9/10/07 issue, I was struck by the contrast between the letters of David Utterback, to whom I can relate, and Barbara Brandow who finds "this country a humiliation regarding immigration". Regardless of a person's views on immigration, it looks like it will take a "load of compromisin'" (as someone said) to reconcile our views. Meanwhile, the insults and name-calling continue.


Dear Editor:
As human beings, Ethiopians, Jews, Arabs, Chinese etc have the same dreams and rights as Americans. The rights to pursue happiness, prosperity, dignity, safe haven, freedom and opportunity is not the monopoly of Americans. Even the US constitution mentions that all human beings are created equal. Human beings not just Americans. And how dare and selfish we're that we can justify our ancestors to immigrate to this land to pursue those dreams but denying others to do the same? If we balk at Mexicans today, why not balk also on the Pilgrims landing at Massachusett shore 400 years ago? It seems that Mr. Utterback's letter thinks that we can print US dollar at will and assume it will be accepted and valued forever by foreigners. It's not. Countries are just like households that need fiscal sanity and common sense to survive and prosper. While many conservatives love to blame illegal immigrants for stealing welfare, nobody look at hundreds of billions dollar wasted on stupid wars that benefit us nothing except some corrupt politicians and special interests. Some are so proud about those wars in the past, I am not at all. Many of these wars were wars for profit, greed, exploiting and colonizing other human beings. We have annexed parts of Mexico, we have committed genocide on Native Americans to steal their lands and gold. Global peace can be achieved by one thing, equal rights and respects on every human beings. To win the war on terrorism, we must free this world from bigotry, intolerance, superstitions and false teaching of evil cults not by WMD but by true enlightenment for all mankinds. The "Great Wall of USA" won't deter any evil wannabees to harm the innocents. We must fight the propaganda of hate with proganda of love and tolerance.

Dear Editor:
Responding to mihai capatina's letter (09/10/07 ID) and agreeing with Karmeea Adamas's letter. For 60 years I paid heavy taxes, was a Vietnam Veteran, my family shed lots of blood for our country, our flag, since 1620 when we arrive in the US. Now in 2004 we have to leave our country cause we can't afford health care premiums to insurance companies that deny benfits just to profit the HMO's. So now we live in a 3rd world country, cause our government don't care about us. People on ADC, illegals getting emergency sevices don't have to worry about a credit company threatening their assets. So, we, American citizens who struggled at time to pay huge taxes, are literally forgotten. Is that fair? Who should come first, the citizens who fight its war, the many wars or should illegals get free public education, when our kids had to brown bag it to school cause we didn't have the money. So, now illegals kids ride these big yellow school buses, which we can't afford in our own country. Then too Susanna I. Bogue, Esq.'s statement (09/10/07 ID), "No one disagrees that we are a nation of laws". How is it we're a nation of law with 20 million illegals in the country. Then 'it was the white colonialist descendants who feel they are the "true owners" of the land write down the imaginary political border and create immigration laws to separate them.' by robert yang, Well, what are we, people without a country, while you have your country and our country. "Then I Just saw the CRS Report On Federal Taxation Of Aliens Working In US" by Roy Sheldon (see 09/10/07 ID). Paying taxes desn't make one a US citizen.
