Dear Editor:

Karmell Bowen implies that everyone in the world should have an opportunity to better their lives by immigrating to the U.S., and that U.S. immigration policy should have this as an objective.

My response is that everyone in the world should be able to have a decent life where they're at and, since it is literally impossible for everyone who wishes to come here to do so, that we should not use our immigration policy and domestic social programs to further what should be a foreign policy objective. Furthermore, those who claim that we need (illegal) immigrants to do dirty jobs in agriculture to keep prices low should consider: without artificially low prices for U.S. products, agricultural products from developing countries, often these countries' main exports, might fare better in the U.S. market. Monies earned from these crops would fuel better living standards for everyone in the countries that produce them.
