Negative immigrant plan could have consequences

Re: Jahiel letter, Press, (Nov. 20); responses, (Nov 24)

In light of recent disagreements concerning Jacob Jahiel’s comments that generally supported immigrants and immigration, as expressed in recent letters to the editor, I would like to offer him a little, maybe much- needed, support.

In my view, his arguments are basically correct. I also believe that a negative approach to welcoming immigrants can lead to negative consequences. More explicatively, the negative tone and attitude resulting from barring entry of recently considered immigrants has more potential of fermenting violence than does allowing their entry with the small potential of resultant violence.

It could be that some of those expressing anti-immigration sentiments could well themselves be the offspring of immigrants once seeking a better, safer livelihood.
