The INS has begun deportation proceedings against Joeri DeBeer, the Dana Point youth convicted of killing his legal guardian, who had sexually abused him. DeBeer was arrested earlier this month because he had committed a crime of "moral turpitude," said Harold W. Ezell, western regional commissioner for the Immigration and Naturalization Service. Because DeBeer was convicted of manslaughter, he is in violation of his non-immigrant student status, Ezell said Saturday.

Re "Fighting TB Will Require Both Short-, Long-Term Solutions" (Column, March 20): Just another of the very obvious serious impacts on our state because of the continuing invasion of illegal (immigrants) who came here without medical inspection by an approved physician in their home country before entering the United States. This outbreak of (tuberculosis) in our county would not happen if we had control of our borders. I suggest Mrs. (Pearl) Jemison-Smith check out the 440 new TB cases in 1993 and see how many are illegal (immigrants)

In reference to Assemblyman Tom Umberg's (D-Garden Grove) proposal to seek an asset forfeiture law aimed at employers who willfully employ workers without legal documentation ("Umberg Aims Tough State Bill at Employers of Illegal Immigrants," Aug. 31): I am appalled that Assemblyman Curt Pringle (R-Garden Grove) would attack this measure as the wrong approach. I have personally witnessed dozens of honest subcontractors in the construction industry bankrupted by sleazy contractors who purposefully seek out a work force that cannot defend itself against slave wages, no benefits and unsafe working conditions.

While one can only applaud Harold W. Ezell's good intentions and hopes by advocating a revitalized Mexican economy, as the result of the U.S.-Mexico free-trade agreement ("Use an Immigration Carrot, Not a Stick," Commentary, June 12), he, like so many other self-proclaimed economists, fails to address the root problem of Third World unemployment, namely an overwhelming population growth rate. Not even under the most favorable conditions of an economic boom would Mexico generate enough satisfactory jobs for the ever-increasing numbers of new entries into the labor market.

Jere Witter, in his "Santa Ana Police Invite In the Tanks" (Sept. 22), chooses to smear local police departments and the Immigration and Naturalization Service rather than take a hard, objective look at the crime scene in Santa Ana and other Orange County communities. In doing so, he does not only a disservice to himself, but to The Times' readers as well. Witter, almost by his own admission, believes it is callous and unnecessary for the Immigration and Naturalization Service to perform its duty as mandated by Congress, namely, to arrest illegal aliens, even if they are involved in major criminal activity in our communities.

After reading Jose Vargas' flight of fantasy, "Playing the Game of Immigration" (Jan. 19), it seems obvious that he should have chosen social work rather than law enforcement as a career. Aside from the fact that he apparently has forgotten the oath of office he took, Vargas is a member of that "open border" fraternity, who are also strong advocates of selective law enforcement for illegal aliens. He has learned the "activist" line and sings it well. From claiming that this land "morally" belongs to Mexico (American Indians no doubt would argue the point)

In his letter to the editor (Jan. 31), Amin David, president of Los Amigos of Orange County, shows that he is typical of that small but loud group that tenaciously opposes immigration law reform and won't let go regardless of the fact that the law is a fait accompli. He fails to see that his comments serve only to create more uncertainty in the Latino community--his own constituency. The tactic of this group is to personally attack me rather than to stand with the INS and a multitude of ethnic groups to urge qualified illegal aliens to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to gain legal status.

It's encouraging to see that a respected leader in the African-American community has spoken out with some positive suggestions on the disgraceful situation between the Korean-American business owners and the African-American customers in parts of Los Angeles. Murray's suggestions are positive and reasonable; the basic suggestion is for "dialogue, dialogue, dialogue." Where are the elected officials? HAROLD W. EZELL, Newport Beach

YACHT PEOPLE: Harold W. Ezell, who held Valadez's job in the Reagan Administration, now heads a Newport Beach immigration consulting firm. He helps foreign millionaires get work permits. In typical Ezell elan, the outspoken former commissioner says: "I work with yacht people, not boat people." Ezell has taken advantage of the investor program in the 1990 Immigration Act that allows immigration for business executives with a minimum $1-million investment.
