Texan Of The Year

Dallas Morning News has chosen the illegal immigrant to be 2007 Texan of the Year, saying "He is at the heart of a great culture war in Texas and the nation, credited with bringing us prosperity and blamed for abusing our resources. How should we deal with this stranger among us? He breaks the law by his very presence. He hustles to do hard work many Americans won't, at least not at the low wages he accepts. The American consumer economy depends on him. America as we have known it for generations may not survive him."

I-9 Forms and IRCA Compliance
Greg Siskind writes "While immigration can be a highly divisive issue, employers need to focus on complying with the law. Most employers will never file a visa application for a worker. But the mistake many business owners make is assuming that no foreign employees means no need to worry about immigration laws."

Dear Weekly Editor:
What will happen to the twelve million? They will not disappear and the nonimmigrant are a necessity here.

Gladys C. Farris

Dear Weekly Editor:
In response to Gladys C. Farris's letter (IW 1/7/08), the illegals coming in are indeed coming for hunger as is happening in France and England. Nonetheless, it is eroding the American citizen and the U.S will lose world economic and military power and the u.s. will itself become a third world country. I still encourage people, the officials to allow them as overseas workers making $350 a month, not to drive on our roads, not to freely roam the country, but come in under a sponsor like all overseas workers. All they need is $350 a month to send home to mexico to their familes, not to enjoy the benefits of u.s. citizens. Overseas workers work on three year contracts, for domestic and lower jobs. They should not compete with Americans for jobs. So, people starving for food, do not need to come into the u.s. except under a three year contract, whereas the sponsor cares for the medical, and all the needs of their workers. The contract workers must be accompanied by their sponsors representatives off the sponsors property. This solves the problem for the hungry mexican and protects the American citizen. The current situation is absurd.
