Ali Alexander's letter takes exceedingly little account of American history. In his letter he seems to be saying
that past immigrants to America were, if not
well-educated, at least literate in English as well as
their own language. I'm quite certain that the
multitudes of Irish, Italians, and other Europeans who
came to the US many years ago seeking a
better life were not well-educated, if they were
educated at all, and I am positive many of them did not
know English. They seem to have done just fine here a
few generations later. This is a chance that Mr.
Alexander seems to be unwilling to give others from
"Third World" countries.
