Immigrants and commodities

In response to Dennis Roberts’ letter, “Dire threat of immigration,” (July 19) I ask him the following questions:

Do you eat fresh fruits and vegetables? Drink wine, perhaps? Ever stay in a hotel or motel while traveling or eat in a restaurant?

The labors of the immigrant population you rail against make those commodities and conveniences possible for you to enjoy. I suggest that their loss would be a probable threat to your very existence

(Though, of course, I could be wrong!)
