US-MEXICAN RELATIONS: Mexican Immigration to the US

Linda Nyquist clarifies her position: " I did not call conservatives hypocrites. I regard all of us who support a government that tolerates undocumented workers and allows them to be cruelly exploited as hypocritical. I count myself in. In terms of Mr. Castillo's remarks, I hope he does not think that I sanction the continuing exploitation of Mexican laborers, or any other laborers, for that matter. Remember, I marched with Cesar Chavez as a young woman and have worked for labor issues all of my life. My wish is for undocumented workers to be legalized and enjoy decent wages, benefits, and legal protections".

The last word: I have received so many messages on this issue that I think we must change the subject for a while.
