More on undocumented students

Department: Letters
Keywords: opinion

Are you really living in such a bubble that you think everyone would agree with your short-sighted views on whom you insist on calling “undocumented” immigrants (C&EN, April 17, page 36)? By painting a picture that victimizes those who take shortcuts and cheat their way into our country, you in fact make light and belittle my family, and others, who worked hard and fought long to get here.

They clearly broke the law entering this country. If anyone from the U.S. sneaked into Japan, Mexico, or England and tried to get an education, how far do you think they would get?

Regarding your recent article on Aquaculture - I normally avoid eating farm-raised fish, but on a recent trip to Hawaii at a small cafe on the Big Island, I tried a fish called kampachi. I was prompted to try it because of a small brochure left at our table describing how these fish are raised in the deep ocean using sustainable technology. The fish was delicious, and the technology seems to have a minimal environmental impact, unlike fish farming in shallow coastal waters. More details are found on the company website:
