Letters

Readers are welcome to share their comments, email: editor@ilw.com (300-words or fewer preferred). Many letters to the Editor refer to past correspondence, available in our archives.

Dear Editor:
I don't have any problem with two basic assumptions in R.L. Ranger's latest letter (08/15/06 ID). First, I agree that we do not have room to let the whole world come to America. Even the most ardent immigration supporters have to agree that there must be limits. Second, I do not dispute that the US has major economic, security, environmental and other problems. Where I part company with the ideas in Mr. Ranger's letter, as well as many of his previous ones, is that most of these problems are homegrown, and cannot be solved by scapegoating immigrants. To take only one example, even if we took in twice as many immigrants as we already have coming here legally and illegally each year, they could not possibly cause more damage to the environment than the Bush administration has already done by gutting clean air and clean water legislation, refusing to admit that global warming exists, and doing nothing to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. Yet many anti-immigration politicians, particularly on the Republican right, pay no attention to the environment at all, except to use it as an excuse to keep out unwanted minority immigrants. The same is true with regard to many other issues as well.

Roger Algase, Esq.
New York, NY

Dear Editor:
Reading R.L. Ranger's letter (ID 8/15/06), one cannot help to read between Ms. Ranger's letter and get an impression that the statements made in the letter are not only "anti-immigrant" but also "anti-ethnic diversification".
