Harold Ezell

September 23, 1986

I was very amused by the three letters (Sept. 16) from readers demanding that you apologize to Harold Ezell, Western district director of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, for your editorial (Sept. 5), "The Circus Is in Town--Again," regarding Ezell's carnival-like atmosphere with cheerleaders as INS agents caught some illegal aliens in Orange County.

Your editorial was correct and Ezell does not deserve any apology, for he will continue to use the news media to keep his name in the public eye for future political considerations as he builds up his base of support. There are many, many public servants who go about their jobs without creating this type of atmosphere, and they get their jobs done as best as they can.
