Immigrant Crackdown

I am submitting a correction for Kari Lydersen's immigration article ["Sitting on a Parked Motorcycle While Latino," December 1]. House Resolution 4437 was not "anti-immigrant legislation." It was anti-illegal immigrant legislation. By failing to recognize the differences between legal immigration and illegal immigration Ms. Lydersen calls into question her own capability to report unbiased, accurate information. In addition, I find Ms. Lydersen's statements to be offensive to those immigrants of the past and present that have made the choice to follow the law of the United States and immigrate legally.
