New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 19, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas Wednesday ApriM HeraldZeitung 5 A Recent Immigration policies a disaster Dear Editor In reference to your editorial of April 12 1995 I applaud you for bringing Operation TriStar to our attention In my opinion our population and immi gration policies as determined by the Democratic Party since 1965 have been a disaster In that year Sen Ted Kennedy and President Johnson gave us a huge boost in our annual quota of legal immigrants As a conservative I asked Sens John Tower and Ralph Yarborough to vote against the 1965 bill Tower voted No but Yarborough voted Yes The bill passed of course Tower was our only Republican in Con gress that year so we conservatives didnt stop the immigrant juggernaut that followed In 1965 our population was 190 million In our census of 1990 we recorded a population of 250 million 1 estimate that it will be 260 million by this years end This means that from 1965 to years we grew by 70 million souls or million per year The facts shown above made me question your next to last paragraph which reads in part We should not ever forget though the real economic misery from which most of the undoc umented workers are trying to How can we forget something we nev er knew We cant However your last paragraph was a very profound factual statement I quote But unfortunately economic misery can be found right here and the can no longer tend to the needs of the world if it ever hopes to address the needs of its Every alien legal or illegal takes a job away from our own offspring work This was recognized by the Repub lican Party in the early 1920s following the great influx of immigrants during andafter WWI The GOP passed very restrictive immigration laws in 1924 Those laws protected us until 1965 Even President Roosevelt FDR and President Truman would not tamper jwith those 19201924 laws President Truman even refused to take from Eng land 5000 black babies that our troops produced during WWII Elwyn S Baldwin New Braunfels If it aint The operation of city government in tNew Braunfels is analogous to a big business and should be run similar to a big business to the extent practical and In this regard the corporate structure whereby the board of directors i city council is elected by the stock i holders citizens and then in turn the board of directors elects the chair of the board is an effective func tioning process that has worked very successfully in the private sector in our American way of life The board then hires an administrator usually with the title of president city The board then sets policy and instructs the i president to implement that policy I The current system of electing the mayor enjoyed by New Braunfels citi zens minimizes the injection of politics into the operation of the city adminis trative staff and allows for the opportu nity to have average citizens represent ing diverse interests to serve on city council and affect the direction the city will take Although there is no perfect structure the present structure docs result in all of the voters having the opportunity to elect the majority of the council By contrast the proposed struc ture allows the voters to elcctonly the mayor and one city council member The present system distributes the political power to all of the council rather than concentrating power in one person It is true that many other cities elect the mayor atlargc which is the result of responding to what sounds good rather than what is the most prac tical and effective way to have repre sentative local government In fact in most instances those cities electing the mayor atlargc were doing so before the passage of the Voter Rights Act Since then the Justice Department has steadfastly rejected changes from our present structure to a mayor atlargc system The most recent rejection was the city of El Campo which has the same form of government as New Braunfels Lets dont be fooled by what sounds good when in reality it would dilute our voting rights Please vote NO to Charter Amendment tt 1 Kathleen A Devine New Braunfels Recycling Instructions found In different places Dear Sirs When the blue baskets were sent out to us a sheet of instructions came with it Not everyone got such a sheet At our home we now find it inter esting to check any and all types of con tainers Especially
