Dear Editor:
I find Bruce Hake's objection to "outsourcing of legal work" by Quantum Technologies (3/28/05 ID) mildly amusing (and very ironic). According to Sugiharto's letters (3/28/05 ID), "Globalism is inevitable". In a global economy, it may turn out that attorneys can't necessarily have their cake and eat it too. I'm sure that lawyers in this country (and legislators, since most of them are attorneys), will take strong action to prevent outsourcing of legal work. Why don't you one step further and attempt to protect the jobs of ordinary Americans?

Steve Landess
Austin, Texas

Dear Editor:
In response to Steve Landess' letter (3/28/05 ID), if Chinese doesn't "manipulate" its currency, US consumers are going to get hurt so badly, because Americans can't enjoy those nice cellphones and plasma TVs at current prices, so actually Chinese are helping Americans to enjoy such a high level of comfort and prosperity. 40% Yuan appreciation or devaluation of US dollars mean 40% less Americans' purchasing power. We hate immigration and job outsourcing simply because we don't want competition. We hate competition, that's the real issue, but life is competition. We must compete locally and globally. Individuals vs individuals, states vs states, nations vs nations. 21st century protectionism won't work. Everybody must learn and show the merits to earn, not based citizenship. The US must balance its budget, invest more in American education, encourage free trade and free flow of capital and good people to benefit US economy. We wish to enjoy 10-30 times more salary while we expect the rest of this planet to become our slaves who should be happy with 1/30th of what we get. We call it justice, it won't happen.

Sugiharto

Dear Editor:
"Some on the right see immigrants as parasites living off the American dole, viewing the world through almost a Marxist lens. The wonder is that these folks call themselves right-wing or even conservative while espousing, on immigration at least, a strictly socialist world-view." (3/16/05 ID comment). While I don't disagree with the overall thrust of Immigation Daily's comment, this use of adjectives is loony. The view that immigrant workers are "parasites" is hard to find under any flavor of marxism. I challenge you to do so. I can't think of any marxist group, even the most sect-like, that would espouse such a view. You certainly cannot find support for such a view in the writings of Marx or Engels, who were relentlessly critical of such hypocrisy. Also there's nothing 'socialist' about calling for a section of the working-class to be rounded up and deported. Maybe "national-socialist," would apply. The main strand of what can fairly be called socialism has stood for solidarity amongst working people across national borders. The marxist and socialist left has surely had its share of historical sins, but its ironic to see it accused of the one failing of which it's been relatively free. I do get it that it's fun to accuse right-wing anti-immigrant forces of being commies... but still. Working people of all countries, unite.

Jonathan Moore

Dear Editor:
Where are the moderators on the forums? This is getting out of control it's flooded with vulgar and offensive posts. Why there isn't a single moderator banning people?

Alfonso Bresciani

Editor's Note: The discussion board has from time to time suffered from inappropriate conduct. In the past, we have dealt with it by banning the offenders. It has become clear to us that the discussion board will need to be moderated. We expect to accomplish that in the short term.

Dear Editor:
I think most subscribers to Immigration Daily enjoy reading Letters from different persons indicating their opinions, ideas, comments, experiences etc. on immigration issues. It is well known that the 'Letters' section is the backbone of Immigration Daily. Therefore, it is requested that its position in the Immigration Daily be maintained. The services of the Immigration Daily are also highly appreciated.
