Dear Editor:
Regarding R.L. Ranger's letter on March 13, 2002, the future of America for the most part relies upon the breeding of immigrants. Each of us is aware that the "American" population is not producing offspring at a rate that is in line with the needs of society and Social Security. Immigrants by and large, produce double the offspring of that of natural born Americans. The related financial stresses have been incurred because of reckless government spending, not because of immigration. In terms of health care, there are many American families that do not have coverage, and thus, the argument that immigrants are leaving the system depleted just do not hold weight. With regard to the reduction of entry, I would point out that tourism is a major factor to the restrictions that would be implied (and would create further financial stresses for many segments of the economy). Not all that cross the border from the north or south are criminal in their intent, nor should they be treated as such. Each person that was alive and aware on 9/11 understands that there are some that are interested in harming the US and it's citizens. My question remains, why has the government not found an appropriate way to locate and prosecute those people that would be engaged in future terrorism, instead of providing a "window dressing" for the public at large. The right to control entry is, to most countries, a non-starter. This simply allows the terrorists to win and the tourists and related industries to lose.
