I will certainly sleep safely and securely tonight, knowing that the ever-vigilant Elton Gallegly is guarding the borders with clenched fists, keeping the community safe from crying women and children ("Gallegly Joins Police, Border Patrol Raid," Jan. 24). Illegal immigration is an enormous problem and a human tragedy, not a cheap photo opportunity for a publicity-starved politician. A bit of advice, Elton: Next time you want to see the immigration officials in action, leave your congressional staff and photographers at home.

Over a thousand Kuwaitis risked imprisonment demonstrating for free elections and democratic reforms in an effort to tell the world that Kuwait is not yet free. But at the same time, our own Republican congressmen, Bob Lagomarsino and Elton Gallegly, played host to the Kuwaiti ambassador, promoting business opportunities with the racist, sexist, repressive ruling al Sabah family ("Kuwait Asks Assistance in Rebuilding," June 15). I hope when these two men are up for reelection, people remember that, given a choice between standing for the principles of democracy and freedom or making a buck, these congressmen sold out.

The people of this county have long needed and deserve honesty and integrity in its government. Congressional candidate Richard Freiman would give us back this hope for a better future and equality for that forgotten, hard-working mainstream American middle-class. Does anyone still remember them? Unlike his opponent, Elton Gallegly, Freiman believes in abortion rights and protecting the environment, instead of offshore oil drilling in California like Gallegly supports. He likewise would not have voted against expanding Medicaid for the elderly poor, as Gallegly did. SHIRLEY EVERETT Thousand Oaks

Re: July 5 article, "Success Not a Matter of Degrees, Say Congressmen." After five terms in Congress, Elton Gallegly blames his lack of a degree as the reason he needs "to stay up a bit later poring over congressional reports" and "ask a few more questions at hearings." I think Beltway Elton needs a reality check. If after 10 years on the job Gallegly is still struggling to keep up with his peers, maybe his lack of education isn't the real problem.
