If there's any local official who can take credit for the layers of steel fencing dividing the hills of Tijuana from San Diego, it's Rep. Duncan Hunter. The conservative congressman has focused a large portion of his 22-year career on trying to seal the border with Mexico. The imposing fences have thwarted many undocumented migrants, but they have also pushed the flow of illegal immigration east to the deserts and mountains of Imperial County.

An Aug. 15 article ("Jet Air Owner Faces 17-Count Indictment") states that Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-San Diego) reportedly interceded on Jet Air's behalf with federal officials in Washington. The reporter states that Congressman Hunter could not be reached for comment. As Congressman Hunter's district administrator, I would like to set the record straight. When Jet Air President Jim Mills contacted Congressman Hunter, the congressman did not intercede on Jet Air's behalf. What he did was suggest that the Navy contact NASA and inquire as to Jet Air's status with the space agency.

Rep. Duncan Hunter isn't well known outside of his El Cajon district. But the conservative Republican hopes to help California out of its electricity crisis by persuading a reluctant Congress and President Bush to support temporary price caps on wholesale power supplies. Hunter is trying to bring together the state's famously fractious 52-member House delegation to support federal legislation that would empower the U.S. energy secretary to impose the caps.

The Times (Dec. 8) gave considerable space to the election of Republican leaders in the House of Representatives but didn't mention that Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Coronado) was reelected chairman of the Republican Research Committee, the only Californian in the House leadership. Hunter is currently chairman of this committee, and had no opposition in his bid for reelection. Several congressmen who are heads of task forces in the committee told of their activities during the Republican caucus meetings.

I am writing to express my gratitude as an Afghan-American to those of the 45th District who have supported and elected Rep. Duncan Hunter. I will never be able to express enough thanks to Hunter for his contributions in achieving "peace through strength" in America and providing humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan. The election coverage rarely mentions the cloud of nuclear holocaust that had threatened us for four decades. Twenty-five million Americans served in the armed forces to protect the world, costing thousands of billions of dollars to the American taxpayers during the 40-year Cold War. Finally, in recent years we have seen the defeat of the communist system and witnessed the disintegration of the Soviet Union.

Your reporter who covered the rally at Hancock Elementary School had to reach a great distance in order to throw cold water on an event designed to help build morale among the students ("Help or Hoopla? Rally to Ease Pupils' Fears Over Mideast Crisis Stirs Debate," Sept. 8). Congressman Duncan Hunter and Randy (Duke) Cunningham were not the organizers of this event. They were invited guests because of their positions and because both men are military combat veterans and could relate to the children and families.

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-El Cajon), best known for his advocacy on behalf of the military, launched a longshot bid for the presidency in Spartanburg. Hunter told supporters he wanted to pick up on President Reagan's legacy. He announced plans for a bid in October. South Carolina is an early-primary state.

The U.S. Senate passed a resolution Thursday opposing Rep. Duncan Hunter's plan to allow military veterans to hunt on Santa Rosa Island. Private hunts are allowed on the island but will end in 2011. Hunter (R-El Cajon), chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, wants to keep deer and elk on the island. The National Park Service opposes the hunting plan. The resolution was sponsored by California's Democratic senators, Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer.
