When I read the letters to the Editor, I am amazed by the plethora of words that some writers, usually the same group, muster in the espousal of their contentions.
If one reads history, one discovers that the fears against immigrants are as unjustified today they were in the past. The recent article, "The Hidden History of Immigration", confirms that. The fears of loss of language, culture shock, and anarchy can all be safely deleted to the recycle bin of oblivion. The phenomenon that we are experiencing is known as global evolution. One cannot hold back evolution any more than one can hold back the tide.
It is sad that today's xenophobic rhetoric is directed mostly at one group of immigrants, a group that it is cruel to repoach. Have no fear, they will survive to become a valued adjunct to our society.
