In rebuttal to Artha R. Wilber's letter (May 5):
Do you not see that the so-called border illegal aliens need food and money to exist. Their government is not supporting their basic needs.
Referring to the Mexican illegals as "strawberry pickers," instead of human beings, is a common "red-neck" philosophy.
Don't you see that your uneducated and blind hatred leads to a labeling of people who have come to the United States as the ideal place to start at the bottom and have a chance to feed themselves and us.
Try examining your patriotism. Does it mean a sense of superiority and a right to expound racism?
