Dear Editor:
The anti-immigrationists contend that the undocumented population of our country must be controlled and reduced. There is one sure, realistic way by which this number can be cut by more than half in short order, and that is by repealing the 3-10 year ban law. The law is a bad one and totally ineffective. It provides punishment, not control. It does not prevent migrants from returning illegally; it just increases their risk of death in attempting a return. I favor strictly controlled borders and a realistic legal way for unskilled immigrant workers to enter this country to fill the menial jobs where they are needed. There are millions of undocumented workers who want to return home but they don't want to burn their bridges behind them by denying themselves any possiblity of a legal return for from three to ten years. And contrary to what Ali Alexander writes, there is no legal way by which a restuarant owner can hire a dishwasher from Mexico or a family legally employ a caregiver from that country.
