Dear Editor:
In May I debated Bill O'Reilly on WOR-Radio. The experience brought home to me the ignorance and bigotry that the masses tune into daily. The purported topic was the lawsuit recently filed by the family of a Mexican who died in an airless tractor-trailer in Texas. I pointed out that there was enough air for a 911 call. It was received by a small-town Texas Police Department with no Spanish speaker. O'Reilly said access to a translator is too expensive for such 911 systems. O'Reilly said that Mexican illegals are bankrupting California. He was oblivious to the Social Security and income tax wage deductions of foreign workers who lack bona fide social security cards. He was oblivious to the need for immigrant labor. He trashed both the Mexican Government and would-be immigrants. Unlike O'Reilly, I think the lawsuit is terrific. It creates an opportunity to focus national attention on the issues of the Mexican border and the need for legislation. I hope it gets coverage beyond the Houston Chronicle.
