Dear Editor:
Ali Alexander keeps harping on this literacy thing. Even if true, this is completely irrelevant to the debate on immigration. Each generation attempts to better themselves. I am the direct descendent of an African slave. My grandmother grew up illiterate on a sharecropping farm in Arkansas. My father got his associates degree. I finished law school. So what if some people who come here canít read or write English or donít speak "educated" Spanish( Whatever that means). Their children will be able to do both. Aliís arguments are against people not against immigration. The Irish and Italians who came here in the 40ís were not a highly educated bunch but no one argues that we should send them packing. Even our president doesnít speak "educated" English but he still got the job.
