Melissa Malkin-Weber: No reason in letter

Why are you giving space to the writer of the June 15 letter “There’s the door”? Surely you get plenty of letters written by people who are offering “reasonable people may differ” analysis of the question of how to handle illegal immigration.

Instead you publish this letter that paints all Latino immigrants with one nasty broad brush. All the allegations are listed in “quotations.” There is no fodder for discussion or increased understanding.

I appreciate hearing opinions different from my own, but this letter left me nauseated. I’m really disappointed that you provided a soapbox for this jingoistic and vitriolic letter.
