Bipartisanship Angle

In La Prensa San Diego, Frank Sharry argues "For months, pundits in Washington have been dying to write the obituary for comprehensive immigration reform. Predictably, they're using (last) Tuesday night's special election in Massachusetts as a chance to do just that. But what they overlook is that immigration may well be one of the few issues where a bipartisan breakthrough is possible."

Dear Editor:
I take issue with Bruce Hake's letter (01/29/10 ID) that my letter (01/28/10 ID) is "wrong". In fact in Mr. Hake's letter admits that "... in the last three years or so that DHS has started taking the radical and unduly harsh position that a person with a pending I-485 must also maintain nonimmigrant (temporary) status . ." That is because, as I said in my letter, it has been INS and USCIS/DHS policy not to put I-458 applicants into removal proceedings. I know of no law that says that a filed I-458 application tolls any statute or prevents instituting removal proceedings, and if there is such a statute, perhaps Mr. Hake's letter could have shared the statute citation, and case citations with us, as such citations are sorely missing from the letter.

Dear Editor:
I wanted to thank ID for posting articles and links in the last couple of weeks to the Catholic social teaching on immigration/migration. I have long held the same belief that God protects and honors his creations without regard to their geographical location. The party of "no" and people associated with it often digress to quoting Biblical references in support of their arguments. The article notes that there is a difference between natural, divine and civil law and reiterates that people in the faith community who support legislative change are in no way shape or form "pro-open borders", but are acting to change legislation that is inconsistent with our moral values. Justice and mercy can exist within a rational framework for reform. On the comment (01/28/10 ID) regarding the Dems extending a hand to Lou Dobbs, not sure we need a fox in the henhouse at this crucial time and cannot imagine how a "birther" who flip-flopped on immigration policy can lend credibility to our arguments.
