Re: “Letters of the Week: Berkeley, National Embarrassment?

The realities underlying the immigration debate are that we have more than enough people, more than enough imported poor people (see The Characteristics of Unauthorized Immigrants in California, Los Angeles County, and the United States by Karina Fortuny et al; the February 9, 2006 report by the California Legislative Analysts Office (LAO) on efficacy of border police; the Analysis of the California 2001-02 Budget Bill by the LAO), and more than enough imported criminals (read about Jamiel Shaw, Kate Steinle, Juan Francisco De Luna Vasquez, ); consider the disproportionate medicare fraud, food stamp fraud, and mortgage fraud by recent arrivals from cultures in which crime and fraud are normal - look up Glendale medicare fraud. Look up HHS OIG Most Wanted.

Re: “Letters of the Week: Berkeley, National Embarrassment?

George Rockwell has a valid point. We should also implement the visa entry exit system that was legislated years ago. It has been 17 years since the entry-exit system was first enacted in the 1996 immigration bill.

However. the forces for easy entry are wealthy and powerful. Look up Gelbaum and the Sierra Club. Look up Clinton, Huang, andJames Riady.

Re: “Letters of the Week: Berkeley, National Embarrassment?

About this 'Wall' business, and the illegals it is supposed to keep out: Sweep it aside for a moment and riddle me this--Why is there NEVER a discussion about what is required to become a LEGAL immigrant? What do these wretches have to do that they haven't or won't,.. present a fortune in fees, fill out forms in legible English, grease the right consular/embassy palms (as if..), and wait, and wait, and wait, like in 'Casablanca'? This aspect really should be admitted as evidence.. for the source of the problem. Well, one source, the other being US' Monrovian foreign policy..

I agree George needs a hug and Micheal comes off as an angry troll. Your not helping the liberal cause spewing venom. You make us sound as bad as the otherside dude. Open your mind and your ass will follow.

Re: “Letters of the Week: Berkeley, National Embarrassment?

george rockwell has the problem all bigots and fools suffer...
belief in his own stunted humanity and lack of informed real world solutions... racist and jingoist with a touch of sexist nonsense for distraction... a black female, namely Rep. Barbara Lee has been the voice for reason and justifiable restraint from hatred and war mongering just for one prominent example... george rockwell has not made any convincing points to justify his ignorance... george rockwell is a constant embarrassment to any sentient being...

Re: “Letters of the Week: 'Baconslut,' Single-Payer Health Care, and More

I totally agree with Clarence C. Johnson. Did NOT understand the brouhaha about where in the building the affordable units were located. I'd like to point out some advantages of living on lower floors: Residents of the lower floors will spend less time waiting for elevators, will possibly be able to walk the stairs to and from their apartments whenever they want to, and will be able to get in and out a lot faster than residents of the upper floors. Upper floor residents will have better views. Life is a trade-off.
