Dear Editor:
Regarding the letter dated 12/23 from John H. Frecker, Mr. Frecker, with all due respect, and being from Maine myself, I can appreciate that you mow your own lawn, as does my 70 year old 'Maine-iac' mother. However, even in Maine, with an estimated 14,000 migrant workers employed in 2002, there are some jobs that are being performed by illegal workers. I know of no one that is not angered and appalled that the Sept 11th bombers entered our country so easily. It does seem, however, that these are two separate issues which both need to be addressed. How can we keep track of the millions of illegal aliens that are here now if we don't give them some sort of legal worker status? They are working anyway, so why not legalize them, collect taxes from their wages, and otherwise legitimize their lives here. I am not suggesting a blanket amnesty, but an employment based permit that would be a step in the right direction toward tackling this problem. What other solution is there?
