Dear Editor:
In his post dated 3/26/03 "R.E. Baer" wrote: "Work opportunities do not abound in Mexico. The work force exceeds the opportunities. The result is unemployment and poverty." He also says, in part, that "undocumented immigrants" in this country must be "identified and accommodated". If we adopt this solution, and if we "accommodate" every alien, legal or illegal, won't we eventually reach the point where "the work force exceeds the opportunities" resulting in "unemployment and poverty"? At what point would we limit the flow of immigration? The US Census bureau recently projected that the population of this country would be 420 million by the year 2050, up from the 403 million that they previously predicted. Regarding the US Marine killed in Iraq and who had been an illegal alien, he apparently believed enough in this country to serve it. I hope his family can cope and that his memory lives. That said, does his situation "prove" that all illegal aliens are only here to make this a better nation? This young man may have been. But that ignores all those illegal aliens in prison around the country. You could just as easily use them as an example of illegal aliens. It appears that we may have lost a good, young man. That's not an argument for more illegal aliens.
