Employers should stop hiring illegal immigrants

RE: Another side of the immigration issue (SDN Sept. 21)I agree, Mr. Munoz, that the illegal aliens dying in the desert is a big problem as well as those that die being smuggled in trucks. I did not mention it because it seems to me that if the employers here stop hiring illegal aliens, there will be no jobs here for them to come to so they will not be trying to cross the border. Yes, I would be willing to pay more for my dinner if there were no illegal aliens working in that place of business. As for the strawberry problem, I went last year without eating one strawberry. These farmers need to find a way to get legal labor. I was a fan of the bracero system and I don’t know why it would not work now. I am disappointed that you characterize illegal aliens as being “brown.” Illegal aliens are of all colors. The country that has sent us the most visa overstayers is Canada, and I don’t believe they are doing the work that Americans won’t do.I would like to hear from people who feel the same as I do about illegal immigrants in our county. Please e-mail me at skibum_0060@yahoo.com. Let’s see if we can get a “very vocal and well-organized electorate” as Mr. Munoz suggests.
