Dear Editor:
In response to Dr. Baer's letter on guest worker programs for Mexicans, there already is a guest worker program, called H-2, for seasonal agicultural (A) and other unskilled labor (B).  These programs have been underutilized for years by employers and workers, probably because it's easier to hire someone (or be hired) without having to abide by the regulations or be accountable.  They, like previous guest worker programs, also have problems with lack of enforcement of the conditions protecting workers.  Any guest worker program has to be accompanied by stringent enforcement of the immigration laws, or it's doomed to fail.  Nor would a guest worker program targeted only to Mexicans prevent deaths such as the 19 we saw a couple of weeks ago; recall that many of those involved were not Mexican, but other Latins.
