In addressing the Shredder's May 3 column on immigration ("The last stand"), Mike Source's May 17 letter ("Dear Mr. Shredder") laments his having to compete with undocumented immigrants for construction work. However, he shows zero concern for immigrant families seeking safety and a better life, and for Americans who hire construction workers and appreciate the competition that Mr. Source finds so distressing.
Sad, but not surprising. To today's Ayn Rand-style conservatives, the needs of others count for nothing.
