Dear Editor:
I'm glad that Dr. Baer has been able to agree with me twice in two years. However, I believe he takes statements by others out of context to justify his support of massive immigration. I also think he has a different definition of "consensus". In labor-management negotiations, consensus means agreeing to solutions to problems where the parties are often far apart. Perhaps no one is entirely happy with the solution, but they agree that it's the best they can do. In his letter of 3/18/03, Dr. Baer acknowledges that we should compromise and try to reach consensus, and he then proceeds to try to explain why we "self-avowed immigration restrictionists" should do all the compromising. Another part of the problem-solving process is to try to put yourself in the other "party's" place. If one or more of the parties can't or won't even admit that the other party may have a legitimate point of view, no consensus is possible. One party may be able to impose its will on the other, but that's not a solution. It'll just create more problems in the long run.
