Dear Editor:
ID's 02/12/08 Comment "Learn from Reagan," could learn better from Bob Dylan, who in the 1960's said, "The Times They Are A' Changin'". This is not the 1980's and this is not Reaganomics, whose day has come, failed, and gone. The Amnesty of 1986 to which Reagan, Giuliani and ID refer is long past, having been proved by the sheer numbers of illegals present in the US today to be a total failure in accomplishing what it was intended to do. True, just as in 1986, when it was estimated there were approximately 3 million illegal present in the US, the government cannot deport the approximately 12 million that are here now. What the government can do is to address the realities of the situation and create effective law establishing a guest worker program that assures employers will have access to foreign labor when it is needed, while at the same time protecting US jobs of US. That will happen when pigs fly. So in the meantime, what do we do? Legalize all the lawbreakers? Encourage more to enter the US illegally or overstaying their visas, while at the same time asking, "When will the next amnesty come?" I don't think so. The pigs I referred to previously live in the mud and muck of the barn yard, where, as George Orwell penned in his satirical allegory on Soviet totalitarianism, "Animal Farm," where all animals were equal, except some animals were more equal than others, perhaps the mud and the muck of Animal Farm's barnyard can be compared to the quagmire of fat cats on Capitol Hill, who sat on their dead behinds for twenty years, allowing illegal immigration to get totally out of control.

Dear Editor:
At last - sensible solutions without the hysteria (see 02/13/08 ID comment). Ronald Reagan and Rudy Guiliani certainly rationalized the immigration problem almost 30 years ago - so what went wrong? Perhaps we should all just take a deep breath, think logically and use good old commonsense - and stop all the time-wasting, bickering and whining. Please just get back to running the country efficiently, cost-effectively and using the talent being offered to this country. Most of us just want the opportunity to lead a better life and contribute to the nation and its economy, in exchange for fair treatment and a chance to put down roots, rather than spend their lives looking over our shoulder, in fear and with the uncertainty of what the future holds for our families. We are not trying to steal jobs from Americans. Once here, we play by your rules and try to be good 'non-citizens', with responsibilities and commitments just like Americans. If you want to see bad immigrants, take a look at what's happening in the UK these days.


Dear Editor:
Re: ID's 02/12/08 comment, "Learn From Reagan", I read the brief comment and the full text of the source and am wondering if ID had a point buried in there? Perhaps some of ID's readers more astute than I could enlighten me.
