Dear Editor:

According to an article in the Sunday, February 23, 2001, issue of the Pittsburg, Kansas Morning Sun, on a recent visit to a local school in Pittsburgh, Kansas, US Senator Sam Brownback (R-Kansas), newly installed Chair of the Senate Immigration Subcommittee, pointed out, "the baby boomer generation needs to welcome immigrants because they had fewer children and will need a work force to support them in their retirement. I think," Senator Brownback said, "that what we've got to do is to continually show the positive side of this." Pittsburgh, Kansas, the heart of the heartland so to speak, has experienced a 224% growth in the population of Hispanics when the 2000 Census data is compared to the 1990 count.

Immigration is not a topic of concern to our big cities. It has become a matter of demographic survival for small towns and villages, particularly in our rust belt where birth rates are low and the population continues to age. They need immigration to support the growing senior citizen demands for health care and retirement benefits. When the baby boomers leave the work force, the demographic time bomb will explode unless there are young and vigorous immigrants, in the prime of their working years, to take their place. Let us act now. While there is still time.
