Letters to the Editor

'Illegal' is not a synonym for 'Latino'

The terms "illegal," "immigrant" and "illegal immigrant" are not synonymous with "Latino" or "Mexican." In fact, the majority of Latinos are neither immigrant nor illegal, and the printing of such letters indicating that these terms are interchangeable is irresponsible and insulting to the many Latino citizens of this country who are hard-working, productive and legal citizens.
