Dear Editor:

Dr. Baer, in his letter to the Editor yesterday apparently overlooks the opportunities that employers have had to "legalize" the status of their illegal workers and didn't take. Opportunities such as the 245(i) mini-amnesty of last year. Or the H2-A guest visa program, that has been sorely underutilized. The question is: just how willing ARE employers to actually sponsor their low-wage employees--if it means that the employees will be able to demand higher wages when they legalize? It is, after all, the illegal status and the control over the illegal worker which makes them so attractive to employers. That attraction would diminish or vanish were the workers legally able to work here--as would the jobs. Which would most likely be filled by even more illegal workers. And which would leave the US taxpayer to provide welfare benefits to the newly legalized workers.
