Aspen letter writer offends Hispanic community

Dear Editor,

Please tell that “criminal” lady in Aspen, Linda Lou Roy, her comment was very offensive to all the Hispanic community in the Roaring Fork Valley. “Criminal” because it is a crime to label an entire community and a country.

Some of these people may be uneducated – uneducated enough for her to abuse and exploit when doing her dirty home “housecleaning.”

Like it or not, Mexico has an enormous amount of oil, and they can use the profits any way they want. Meanwhile, Mr. Bush spends the Social Security monies with the excuse of the 9/11 situation. Or can she tell us in plain words if Bush is a loser taking advantage of 9/11 to expend the monies this country does not have in excess?

What about the criminal activity of the customs and INS agents at the borders? Is this not corruption?

As per the issue of drivers licenses, believe or not, it’s a good idea. That way the undocumented aliens can get insurance, so if they get in an accident, you Anglo guys can sue the insurance for damages, while they can be deported. Good deal, don’t you think?

The bottom line is: We are a growing community, and we need to be heard by our government, our representatives. I understand that there are some rotten apples like Tom Tancredo at the state level, and those who are trying to get an innocent verdict by reason of insanity in favor of Stagner, who has admitted to the killing of four Mexican nationals in Rifle last year. Que dios ayude a su pertubada mente.
