Dear Editor:
Re: Immigration benefits on the Hill (05/25/09 ID comment). Two quick observations. First, a delay may not be a bad thing. It would give the economy a chance to pick up and unemployment a chance to go down. My other observation is that it would be a mistake to take Democratic members for granted. I doubt that any of them have districts that are 100% behind immigration reform.

Nolan Rappaport, Esq.

Dear Editor:
A CIS examiner recently refused to approve a green card for my client because the sponsor was a Puerto Rican and could not produce a green card. The beneficiary tried to explain that his non-English speaking wife/sponsor was a U.S. citizen. The examiner yelled at him to "shut up." My complaint up the line got the case transferred to another examiner but the first examiner is still employed. At the second interview - which I attended - I asked the examiner if she knew why we were having a second interview. She did not. I told her of her cohort's ignorance and she immediately approved the green card. I wonder what exam the CIS employees must pass to get the job.

Paul Good, Esq.

Dear Editor:
Letter writer Roger Algase, Esq. closes his post with "As long as there are people around to rant and rave against all Latinos, including those who are legal immigrants or US citizens, the Republicans will always have a loyal, enthusiastic, base." (05/29/09 ID). The ludicrousness of the letter is not really my concern. I am confused, however, why ID found it appropriate to publish a letter which in my opinion explicitly refers to all members of a political party as racist. If someone wrote that all Democrats were pedophiles, would ID have been as prone to publish the letter?

Christopher W. Basaman, Esq.

Dear Editor:
I am heartened by Mr. Yang's letter's (06/01/09 ID) loving and embracing spirit, and recognition of the inherent selfishness of borders and the use of laws to foster petty self interests. I therefore request the pleasure of my removal to his house for an indefinite period, with due respect for my particular culture. I would like to be served kosher, non-gluten, low sodium food.

Dear Editor:
Not all white Americans support Grand really Old Party. Republican is losing votes because it alienates many voters by its own inconsistency and hypocrisy. How comes they can cut taxes while keep the level of spending and engaging in expensive and unwarranted wars creating huge deficit? How comes a party that believes in strict interpretation of our laws and Constitution but ignore the part of separation of church and state by catering more to religious extremists with their hypocritical holier than thou political agendas? A party believes that welfare and universal health care for the poor and lazy are wrong but big pies for their wealthy corporate cronies is fine and health care and pharmaceutical industries should be allowed to make obscene profits on us at will? A party that believes that same sex marriage should be banned and illegal but not divorces who mess up many children life and break the "sanctity of marriage" even more. A party believes in free market and capitalism and yet they must please their whining constituents who believe in protectionism, nativism and xenophobia, that illegal immigration must stop but let the companies outsource jobs to India instead ? We don't want hypocrite neo cons nor ignorant liberals to run the nation. We must have a party of common sense that uphold equal rights principles for all Americans and even to all human beings in general. The biggest blunder for liberals, some Democrats, Judge Sotomayor and President Obama administration is that they must stop supporting reverse racism and affirmative action policies for the minorities. It's wrong, unfair and absurd and even insult to all minorities including myself that we can't earn something by our own merits without being given special favor. Everyone must pass the very same entrance test regardless of skin color and race. Period.

Robert Yang

Dear Editor:
Must be difficult, to break all ties, to separate the truth from the lies, Of your comforting cradle of birth, Toward a far land, set forth. Must be difficult, to unlearn, Everything you once knew, The new speedily in your mind burn, A different thinking accept as true. Must be difficult, to get used, To faces white and black, To wish self-protective skills fused, Master the alien with an easy knack. Must be difficult, more than the ways, To tragically leave behind, The feel of rainy tropical days, Neighbors and friends kind. Must be difficult, to restart, From the bottom of the ladder, With your strange foreign ways part, Keep the homesickness from making you sadder. But, yet you do it, With great joy and pain, To keep the internal fire you once lit, And pursue happiness, not in vain
