Dear Editor:
The fiscal drain caused by immigrants that O. Sanchez's letter mentioned is a myth. I have already seen the figures and the modest red can be turned into black with a little change in the underlying assumptions. Furthermore, the Federal Government can fairly choose to scale down the welfare state like President Reagan skillfully did and this will not only reduce any drain, but it will also put some US individuals at work. The real deal is in the long-term prospects. The future is grim without a growing supply of young willing workers. Medicare, Social Security and all the rest of the federal bonanza will start bleeding cash in a couple of decades. The U.S. will be posed to become an aging state like the "Old Europe," incapable of supporting any social program not to mention a sizable defense budget. That is why devising a rational and efficient legal immigration system, not prey of interest groups and electoral demagoguery, should be a priority.
