Dear Editor:
I'm curious as to why Mr. Prchal's letter implies that I oppose legal immigration, no such thing, as I have stated and explained before. To repeat, if American jobs are protected by labor certification (not the joke we have now), and if sponsors or employers are required to be responsible for the support of those they bring over, I have not a problem in the world with legal immigrants, skilled or unskilled. Not unreasonable expectations, I believe. As for having a problem with Mr. Prchal's immigration in particular, again, why? His ethnicity? My mother's grandparents were Bohemian (Czech ethnicity), and my father's Lebanese mother came (legally) to the US from Canada. A background which largely parallels Mr. Prchal's experience. As an Arab-American I do, however, find offensive (and, dare I say, racist) those who wish to "legalize" Latinos on the basis that they are "hard working...not terrorists", implying that everyone else is not hardworking, and likely a terrorist. But, ultimately, my main objection to legalizing those here illegally, visa overstays or EWI, is that it is fundamentally unfair and unjust.
