Dear Editor:

Once again I would like to respond to Mr. Richard E. Baer's letter. I understand he spent several years working in Mexico and he knows the people of that country very well. One more time I would like to support his position, but we have to remember there are about 9 million illegal immigrants in the US. They are from different countries - from Mexico from Europe, from Poland, Russia, from all over the world. I believe the vast majority of them are honest and hard working people. One year ago I saw an interview on TV with a women who came legally to the US 15 YEARS ago!!! She worked, paid taxes, but still could not establish legal status in all these years. There are 9 million people who need a new solution. In my opinion you can not solve the problem for 3 million Mexicans and forget about other 6 million from other countries.If you take a closer look at restaurants, kitchens, baby-sitting, cleaning, housekeeping, elderly care services you will notice workers of various nationalities. I think any decision concerning status changing should include them all. Maybe it should be an extension of 245(i) or amnesty with some limitations (who is eligible, some background checking). I believe all decisions have to include people regardless of their nationality.

Hopeful Reader
