Make Sure You Get It

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are combating spam through a variety of filters and blocking software to trap emails before they even reach one's email inbox. The upshot is that many ISPs are incorrectly categorizing legitimate email as undesired and preventing these emails from ever reaching your inbox. If you are experiencing email delivery issues, your ISP may have blocked Immigration Daily delivery. To reduce the chances of this happening to you in the future, please add Immigration Daily ( to your email program contact list, mark the email as "not junk" or add it to your "white list"--whichever is applicable. This lets your ISP know that you want the email delivered and reduces the chance of it being blocked. In spite of this, If you do not receive your Immigration Daily issue anytime, please contact the customer service of your ISP to report the problem and let us know of the problem by writing to

Dear Editor:
Who writes the ID comments? I suspect ID thinks that all southerners still own slaves. Please don't be so condescending to us southerners in the future. ID's commentary about the DREAM vote being along Confederacy/Union lines was simply ridiculous, given that there are many other reasons that the vote went as it did - most notably, because (except for California) nowadays the majority of the illegal alien population in the USA can be probably be found in those southern states. Illegal immigration is not a North/South issue. It is an issue that affects all Americans equally. Being closer to the border, we southerners are more directly affected by it than those in the North, since after all, they probably come through here on there way north ... and I don't think they fly on Southwest Airlines to NYC (yet).

Dear Editor:
It is with great regret that I now realize my terrible omission in not thanking Nancy Jo Merritt for her guidance, scholarship and patient mentoring on the pros and cons of using E Verify as this relates to the new Arizona immigration law (see 02/14/08 ID Article). I ask my readers to forgive such an egregious silence that can only be attributed to an aging memory and lack of gallantry. Mea culpa.

Gary E. Endelman, Esq.
Houston, TX

Dear Editor:
Everybody always look for great bargain anywhere, more for less, don't we? And it's unfair and hypocrite to critize corporations trying to seek saving to meet their bottom lines because they're likely passing those savings on us so we can enjoy higher quality and quantity of products and services with lower price. Lou Dobbs et al and their fans always complaint about immigration and jobs outsourcing. These people need to get a life and face the reality that life indeed is competitive. I really don't know what Lou Dobbs really wants? If he supports monopoly and protectionism, will he and his fans pay the extra price? Why it should be ethical and moral to restrict our freedom as consumers to shop by outlawing domestic and foreign competition and establishing monopoly in the name "to protect Americans' jobs" ? Why being an American should be something taken for granted. Being a dumb American is not good enough to compete in the globalized world and economy. US citizenship is not a guarantee that we must earn $ 30K a year minimum. I don't think Lou Dobbs et al are happy to pay 2-5 times more expensive goods and services to support his own naive protectionist monopolistic views while he's preaching everyday on CNN something that he won't do and pay for it. Lou Dobbs is dishonest by not telling us this very truth. I suggest CNN to replace him with another American loser who can do better job for much less.
