On June 19th, I wrote my original article, Voices of Katrina and much to my amazement, the letters keep pouring in from that still devastated region.  While I feel like the ‘Dear Abby’ of these victims, unlike the real advice columnist, I am overwhelmed and do not even know what advice to give them.  But, I do feel it important to tell their story and will continue to do so.

What I cannot understand is how this run-away-freight-train called the United States government can even think about spending billions in order to help illegal immigrants to come in from the shadows so to speak through this ‘Grand Compromise’ bill as Lou Dobbs calls it, but this ineffectual government has not fully addressed this systemic problem.  This is blight on our nation and it should embarrass our elected officials’ world-wide.  To President Bush, Senators Kyle, Kennedy, McCain and those that do support this immigration bill; how about helping your fellow Americans first and foremost.  To any of our esteemed presidential candidates that voted in favor of this bill the last time it was brought up; exactly where are your priorities?

To my readers, I strongly urge all of you to see exactly who voted in favor of this ‘Grand Compromise’ bill by going to this link at the Lou Dobbs web site.  Pay close attention to which presidential candidates voted in favor of it and hold all of them accountable through your non-support of their candidacies.

I guess the one letter that jumped out at me was the one written below by EJG in which his son is now serving as a proud Marine in service to our country in Iraq.  His son is sacrificing so much namely his life, and the least this government could do would be to lift a finger to help a Marine’s father.
