Dear Editor:
Mr. Utterback's letter (06/04/08 ID) seems to have missed the interesting migration of Ethiopian Jews to Israel some years ago. I had an Ethiopian Jew in the office last week as a client and can testify that she was certainly dark-skinned.

Paul Good, Esq.

Dear Editor:
Regarding ID comment (06/05/08 ID), I see the recent actions of the DOL as part of a bigger picture where the DOS/DHS/USCIS/DOL/FBI are involved in a major effort to tighten the screws on the "undocumented workers" and the "legal immigrant/non-immigrant workers". This I believe is being done to please the rising number of increasingly "racist xenophobes" in the USA who tend to support a certain political party. If not by the direct orders of the US government, I believe, it is the racist and xenophobic employees of these government departments that are leading the charge here. Just like the overly subsidized US farmers these groups of neo-nazis want to be the subsidized workers of USA who should not face any competition, lest their great all-american race faces extinction. What is lost to the common man's eye (primarily because these racist xenophobes steal the limelight with their media backers) is the rigorous procedures and costs that the companies have to go through to get a skilled foreign worker. Add to that a constant fear of lawsuits by potential employees/existing citizen employees if they do anything against the law. The companies have to hire lawyers so that they don't face any lawsuits and because they want to succeed in getting the employees on their rolls legally by filling the above organizations paperwork properly.


Dear Editor:
Regarding ID comment (06/05/08 ID), do you think it is proper for companies to place job advertisements for PERM where the contact person to send the resume to is an immigration law firm employee? In other words, have the job application go directly to the law firm?
