Mr. Alexander said the following in his letter printed on Feb. 3.
"As long as we ignore that aspect of our history, and continue to import large numbers of legal and illegal immigrants who do not have the skills or education necessary to succeed in modern society, we will have these exorbitant medical costs, and the rising costs of educating or training people who are not only illiterate in English, but in their own languages."
It seems clear he prefers to ignore the armies of Canadian, Irish and Indian immigrants, legal and illegal, who among others, do take American jobs for the reasons he stated, language and education. That would still leave us with no one to do the jobs most Americans avoid, even if they tell Tancredo they would do the work. Without people to process food in the fields, the abattoirs or the factories food prices will do what gas prices threaten to do. We need the laborers.
