Letter to the Editor: Immigrants

We seem to love immigrants when it comes to cheap labor.  The cotton boys went to Africa, kidnapped black people, enslaved them, and put ‘em to work in the fields.  Worked great, unless you were a black person.  You want a railroad built though some of the toughest granite on earth, exploit Chinese.  Want cheap food?  Get some Mexicans and their children.   Do you know the principles and design of the atomic bomb (ended WWII) were developed primarily by immigrant European Jews.  Pretty nifty.  The meat packers, hire Mexicans and their children also.  Now some states want to lower standards for child labor laws.  Those morbidly rich capitalists are never rich enough..
