Dear Editor:
Jim Roberts' letter's (04/11/08 ID) clarification that it supports only the "limited numbers" of the pre-1965 immigration law, rather than its racial mix, which was heavily skewed toward Northern Europe, is welcome. However, the fact remains that this law was clearly based on a white supremacist view of immigration policy. This is not just my interpretation, but is obvious from the history and background of the law, as almost every scholar of that period has pointed out. This is why, as one of Mr. Roberts' recent letters mentioned, the sponsors of the 1965 Act felt constrained to provide assurances (not very well founded ones, fortunately) that the new law would not change America's ethnic mix. Is it any coincidence that the 1965 Act was adopted at the same time that the racial segregation laws were abolished? Nor is there the slightest basis for accusing my letters of having an "Anti-European" bias. None of my letters has ever advocated anything other than giving immigrants from all over the world an equal chance at the American dream, regardless of race or national origin. This was the purpose of the 1965 law. Linda Cogill's letter (04/11/08 ID) seems to put the problem of legal vs.illegal immigration backward. Putting off removing irrational barriers to legal immigration until illegal immigration is "solved" is only a restrictionist tactic aimed at reducing or stopping all immigration. It is, unfortunately, one that Senator McCain seems to be buying into.
