Immigrants Are Essential

According to an Associated Press news report, NYC Mayor Bloomberg testifying before Congress on immigration said, "Although they broke the law by illegally crossing our borders ... our city's economy would be a shell of itself had they not, and it would collapse if they were deported," he said. "The same holds true for the nation." For the full story, see here.

Dear Weekly Editor:
I find Mr McTyier's analogy of the large house very interesting (07/05/06 IW). Specifically, his letter states "Let's say you come to this country, work hard, wait for a long time to gain lawful status, have a family, become successful in your work, and buy a beautiful big home for you and your family. Now that your children are grown, your home is probably too big for just you and your wife. There are rooms you rarely go to and you only use one side of your two-car garage. But the home is still yours. One day, you come home and find a family of five has been living in your basement, using your water, your electricity, your garbage cans for almost five years. When you confront them and ask, "By what right did you take up residence in my home without asking my permission?" Before the homeowner asks this question, they should take a look around. If he did, he may then ask. "so are you the people that have been tending to my gardens, and constructed the new houses on this street, and re-roofed my house, and have cleaned my house and done my laundry. And didn't I just see you picking up the trash and you weren't you the one working in the kitchen of my favorite restaurant?" His letter might add thank you, because of their economic contributions at the low wages they are paid, your homeowner is able to enjoy things like apples at $1.69 a lb instead of at $4.50 a lb.
