Dear Editor:
In response to Ali Alexander's letter (5/23/06 ID), I couldn't have said it any better or any clearer. Thank you for your letter's wise words. For those who want to donate money to protect our borders, seek out your local Minutemen organization. They will be more than happy to take any donations to help build the wall and plug the tunnels.

Dear Editor:
In response to Lourdes Bitanga's letter (5/23/06 ID), what about securing the border to the North? The argument in your letter sounds so racist. Everyone here came from somewhere else but here.
