Restore integrity to borders

Dear Editor:These people are not immigrants, and being Hispanic or from Mexico does not give them the right or privilege to break our laws (The Aspen Times, Dec. 19).According to the Pew Hispanic Center, the majority of Hispanics coming out of Mexico already had jobs before they left. This speaks volumes that their reason for leaving is not so much for a better life, but coming here for more money and the benefits of living here.For the past 20 years businesses have had their own form of guest worker program at the expense of the American public. What we need now in America is to restore the integrity of our borders and re-establish respect for our laws that employers have abused for profit at the expense of the American worker.John CampbellLittleton
