Letters: Immigration and quality of life

May 26, 2013

Re "Immigration bill moves on," Editorial, May 23

Our freeways are clogged, public services are stretched thin, schools are overcrowded and the once prized University of California system is taking a dive, and yet The Times and the senators pushing the so-called immigration reform bill are acting as if the United States actually needs more immigrants.

The Times keeps this hype at a fevered pitch. The TV campaigns are relentless.

I wish everyone, especially California's Democratic Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein, would take a moment and think this through.

How will admitting more people who will put further strain on our public services enhance our quality of life?
