Dear Editor:
Excuse me? America badly needs singly young men with no visible means? That comment is so absurd that it doesn't deserve a response, but I'll attempt to craft one. Young immigrant women toil here in most of the back-breaking jobs Americans shun. They are cleaners, waitresses, farm workers, food processing factory workers and more. They are every bit as vital to America as are immigrant men, and they are given even more short shrift. For a pro-immigrant daily to completely ignore their contributions is pathetic and blatantly sexist. In fact, women bear the brunt of global civil strife, and we should actively encourage more of them to our shores for the benefits they provide to our economy specifically and to our country as a whole.

Editor's Note: We believe that America badly needs single young women with no visible means just as badly as it needs single young men with no visible means. For that matter, we think married young men and women are fine for the country too. Our language was intended to be read in conjunction with the immediately preceding language of Senators Kyl and Roberts who specifically singled out men for criticism.
