Dear Editor:
In this life there are plenty of good, common sense and just laws, there are also bad and unjust laws to satisfy, benefit and serve special interests by discriminating others. Black African Americans must fight for their equal rights by defying racist apartheid by sitting on the white section on the public bus. The laws made them as "criminals", but good "criminals" fighting unjust laws. Same thing happened with The Chinese Exclusion Act in 1882 that limited Chinese immigration to the USA. When the whites went on strike demanding raise no less than $4 a day wage, Chinese labor were happy and coming to work for just $1 a day instead and work harder, so that's why US made protectionist racist immigration laws to protect "the natives" from competition by making Chinese immigration "illegal" and the Chinese in the USA were denied citizenship and equal rights compared to the white Europeans. These laws have made life for Chinese Americans so miserable and difficult. Ones with sense of moral and justice will question where is the justice and moral behind laws to discourage competition and make it as a criminal activity such as immigration laws and protectionist trade barriers. Ones are charged as criminals because they offer their labor for less just because of their origins and nationalities, or smuggle cheaper goods from overseas since it's much cheaper. Reimportation of cheaper drugs made in USA from overseas into USA is "illegal" but there's no moral and logical justification of why consumers must be blackmailed by special interests' for higher profits and why employers can't save labor costs by outsourcing and hiring cheaper immigrants.

Dear Editor:
Responding to ID's 11/5/07 comment, just FYI: Not sure what (if anything) can be done but I received an email from an attorney that informed me that ICE agents have been going to various district courts in Massachusetts and "interviewing" those people that require the assistance of an interpreter.
