An ironic situation

Dear Editor:On the topic of illegal immigration, an informative article appeared in the April 19 edition of the Times (“The other border,” page A20, Mark Stevenson, The Associated Press).It appears that Mexico treats their illegal immigrants, primarily Central Americans,much more severely than the USA treats theirs. If you are an illegal immigrant down there you are liable to get the crap beaten out of you or even shot. The tolerance level for illegal aliens in Mexico is virtually zilch.Yet Mexico is crying foul and demanding that we coddle their illegals that are hyping out stateside. Isn’t this a blatant example of “Do what I say but not what I do”?It’s time for this country to wake up and realize that we’ve been fed the same old bill of goods for far too long.Pete LuhnAspen
