There Are Immigrants and Then There Are Immigrants



Sirs--: ?

Regarding your article in your August 30 issue entitled "The Unbanked," by Sam Quinones--please don't lump the Pole and Czech immigrants who crossed an ocean to become legal citizens in our country with the undocumented Mexican immigrants who simply crossed a border to become illegal residents of our country.

Also, when and if Mark Doyle marries his "Mexican woman" he can move to Guadalajara and open up a Second Federal branch there. Perhaps he could also fly the Stars and Stripes from it. But--"Don't bank on it!"
