Witness Postville

New York Times recommends "Anyone who has doubts that this country is abusing and terrorizing undocumented immigrant workers should read an essay by Erik Camayd-Freixas, a professor and Spanish-language court interpreter who witnessed the aftermath of a huge immigration workplace raid at a meatpacking plant in Iowa. The essay chillingly describes what Dr. Camayd-Freixas saw and heard as he translated for some of the nearly 400 undocumented workers who were seized by federal agents at the Agriprocessors kosher plant in Postville in May."

Dear Editor:
I don't believe David Utterback's letter (07/14/2008) has taken into consideration the will of Allah. Not everyone in the world is a Christian. Not everyone believes the Bible is "the word of God" and in fact, not everyone believes in God. Immigration is based on the laws of man and changing times.

David D. Murray, Esq.
Newport Beach, CA

Dear Editor:
Regarding the yesterday's letters (7/15/08 ID), the letter of R. Algase continues the hyperbole by suggesting that there is any "wall", barrier or movement against Americans learning a foreign language or of cultures and the preposterous conclusion of: "the same kind of fanaticism" that led to 9/11 which actually was made possible by lax entry and enforcement policies and made it easy for terrorists to overstay visas and obtain drivers licenses. If there are sad stories regarding legitimate enforcement of our laws, the blame should be upon all those millions who have taken advantage of our hospitality and laws. The letter of D. Murray misses the lesson of the failed McCain/Kennedy amnesty of last year, that enforcement and entry restriction is what is needed now, as even McCain now agrees, not another 1986 amnesty fiasco. It is because of previous lax policies that we have so many illegals, and they are not all "raspberry pickers". It is the Globalists/Multi-Nationalist agenda that has misdirected US into foreign affairs, and also led to 9/11, which Geo. Washington warned against, and with which I agree. Similarly, it is the business and special interests that push for an unwise, excess of entry numbers. Regarding the R. Yang letter's rantings, as "paranoia" means 'extreme suspiciousness', I admit to that about Reconquista, but the "delusional" claim is entirely upon those who deny this reality. The RY letter insults US and religion and then displays it's own "hypocrisy" by stating that there should be some entry restriction, but then we have no right "to restrict others' human rights to survive and prosper". We have every right to restrict entry based upon conditions today and others are free to "survive and prosper" in their own countries. America is more than a marketplace or the world's polyglot employment agency.
