CRS Reports

All CRS reports featured on ILW.COM can now be found on our CRS Reports page. CRS reports from the Congressional Research Service are in-depth and scholarly, unlike GAO and OIG reports which focus primarily on budget and fraud issues, respectively. CRS reports are intended for Congressional representatives and their staffers, and are not easily obtainable, unlike GAO and OIG reports which are available to the public on a variety of government websites. We are pleased that CRS reports on immigration are now available on ILW.COM on a handy page that you may wish to bookmark.

Dear Editor:
Jim Roberts' letters are, of course welcome to express their views about how to "protect American culture". However, this comes at a human cost, as shown in the letter immediately following Mr.Roberts' letter (11/26/07 ID), describing the hardships of a family broken up by deportation. Is humanity not part of American culture too? Or is color (sorry, I meant "culture") more important?

Roger Algase, Esq.
New York, NY

Dear Editor:
It's absolutely foolish and naive for any Americans to believe their flip flopping Presidential candidates and politicians from both parties that they "can" really protect Americans from global competition by shutting down the border and kicking out "illegal" immigrants. They must keep in mind that jobs can be outsourced overseas or to computers, machines and robots.Japanese are xenophobic for their well justified "racial and cultural" purity, but with their aging population and declining birth rate, they have to outsource their labor to robots to take care their aging elderly population. Every nations always have complain about foreign competition. Britons and French don't like Poles who are now free and legal to find jobs in UK and France as a new member of E.U. Malaysians don't like the influx of Indonesians and Burmese "illegal" immigrants for the same reasons as Americans balk on Mexicans. Protectionists and selfish nativists are everywhere in this planet. They think they don't have to compete by merits and may take anything for granted just because they're citizens of particular nations even they're dumb, uneducated and have no skills. It's enough for the immigration debate in this forum, and nativists may disguise their fear of competition on their support on unfair and restrictive immigration and trade laws, but it's time to be brutally honest, life is competitive, face it like it or not. If ones don't like it, they may consider to move to another planet where no other human beings can be their potential competitors.
