Comment: We Want Your Letters - We ran a Letters to Editor Section in Immigration Daily for many years. We published the letters we received, regardless of whether they were laudatory or excoriating, and regardless of whether they were pro-immigration or anti-immigration. We had set a 300-word limit for letters designed to keep the length of the Immigration Daily emails reasonable. Editing letters down to 300 words, while preserving their meaning, was taking an inordinate amount of time and effort. To provide instant turnaround time for our letter writers while saving editorial effort, we replaced the Letters to Editor Section with the Immigration Daily Blog comments earlier this year. We would love to hear back from more of our readers. To comment on this comment or any other immigration related issue please do so here or send an email at
