Don’t ‘hispander’ to illegals

Dear Editor:To me, as a Hispanic-American, there is nothing as pathetic and condescending as a guilty white liberal, especially one who “hispanders” to illegal aliens (The Aspen Times, March 3). The idea that we should feel ashamed as a nation if we don’t throw our borders open to the billions (yes billions) of illegal aliens, is not only stupid, it is suicidal. That the author actually believes that there are “jobs Americans won’t do,” because the wages should be kept low, shows just how compassionate he is. In other words, Americans should not be able to hold certain jobs and they should go to Third World “immigrants” willing to work for peanuts. This kind of thinking is what is turning the U.S. into some Third World banana republic. Perhaps the author should be made to pick peaches in western Colorado rather then hold a cushy position writing bad articles.As for the race issue, there are people of all shades in the immigration reform movement, and the only hate I see is from people like the author who obviously hate this country and wish to see our sovereignty erased.By the way, the American Resistance is a group opposed to illegal immigration, not an “anti-immigrant group.” Get your facts straight.Brad CordovaSt. Louis Park, Minn.
