Dear Editor:
Let me remind Mr. Ranger that menial jobs do exist in this country and someone has to do them. It is predicted that by the year 2010 that they will constitute 43% of all job openings, i.e. of jobs that require only a minimal education. Who will fill these jobs? Not our American compatriots. They would rather go on welfare than do that kind of work. Americans are obtaining college degrees in record numbers and are unlikely to accept, at any wage, positions requiring only minimal educations. The Mexican immigrants want to fill these jobs and they do it well. Let's find a legal way in which they can come into this country, properly identified, to do this work and let's protect their rights and pay them a compensatory wage for it. The vast majority of Mexican immigrants will return to their homeland after a few years' work; and the few that want to obtain citizenship should be welcomed as were our own ancestors. In the meantime, the 3/10 year ban law should be abolished so that the millions now here that want to return home can; and, hopefully, if they should want to return again, can do so and this time can do it legally.

Richard E. Baer
