Mike, 17, believes he was born somewhere in the Southwest. His earliest memory is about crying into a white stuffed bear that his father kept in a brown paper bag because they were always on the move. Held out of public schools by his father, Mike had no proof of where he spent his childhood, and he had no birth certificate. Mike doesn't remember his mother. His father, now in prison and considered insane by authorities, is too incoherent to be of assistance.

It was the fourth sweep for illegal aliens in Orange County in eight days, and this time U.S. Border Patrol agents nabbed 143. Early Thursday morning, immigration agents targeted workers congregated on street corners in Orange and Santa Ana, and chased those who fled, even onto Orange County Rapid Transit District buses. Among those arrested, however, was a pregnant woman who turned out to be a legal resident.

I was very amused by the three letters (Sept. 16) from readers demanding that you apologize to Harold Ezell, Western district director of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, for your editorial (Sept. 5), "The Circus Is in Town--Again," regarding Ezell's carnival-like atmosphere with cheerleaders as INS agents caught some illegal aliens in Orange County. Your editorial was correct and Ezell does not deserve any apology, for he will continue to use the news media to keep his name in the public eye for future political considerations as he builds up his base of support.

Although it is not my custom to air disputes in public, Nancy Thomson's letter (Feb. 26) accusing my brother, Monte, and me of illegal acts, and questioning our integrity, cannot go unanswered. We do not knowingly invite illegal aliens to Orange County. We provide care to everyone. We do not ask for immigration cards when we provide medical services. If a person needs a physician, we are there to help. Her statement that these services are available in public hospitals is refuted by the fact that Orange County does not have any public hospitals, having sold the county hospital many years ago. The wealth that we inherited from my grandfather's orange groves amounted to $2,000, which was used for my medical education.

In a victory for California and other states with large immigrant populations, the House Wednesday rejected a Senate-passed proposal to bar the Census Bureau from counting illegal aliens. In the vote, the House turned aside the pleas of members from Northeastern and Midwestern states whose districts are losing population, and thus could be eliminated by the 1990 census. The action came on a procedural move that blocked Rep. Tom Ridge (R-Pa.

When the Costa Mesa City Council voted last month to bar city money from social service agencies that serve illegal aliens, the Orange County municipality received nationwide publicity it had not sought and a policy it could not implement. Now the council has reversed itself--sort of--and asked the agencies to abide by the policy voluntarily.

Nowhere is the potential impact of the immigration revision bill adopted Friday greater than in Southern California--home, by some estimates, to nearly one-third of the illegal aliens in the country. As the measure made its final passage through Congress this week on its way to the White House, government officials from Sacramento to the Mexican border were laboring to gauge its costs and benefits.

Application fees as high as $420 per family are excessive and will prevent thousands of illegal aliens from obtaining amnesty under the new federal immigration law, leaders of Orange County Latino and immigrants' rights groups charged Monday. "The Statue of Liberty is not extending her arms," said Amin David, president of Los Amigos of Orange County, a businessmen's group. "The amnesty program is for . . . people (who are) coming from devastated countries of economic ruin. . . .
