One Reporter's Opinion @ JOBS AMERICANS WILL NOT DO?

Friday, 24 December 2004 12:00 AM

As a youngster of what Tom Brokaw describes as "the greatest generation" - Depression, WWII, growing up in America - I never, working in the farmlands of the Midwest, ran across a job or participated in a job Americans would not do. We planted, harvested, threshed, milked 10 cows by hand, slopped the hogs, made certain that all the farm animals were cared for, and worked sunup to sundown to put food on the table ... and ended up paid as little as a dollar for a day's work. Not only were these jobs Americans would do, WE did them! We learned the work ethic as part of our day-to-day education.

At White House news conferences, they do not allow follow-up questions. May I now join Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) in asking the president the following:

These are just a few of the follow-up questions, Mr. President, which could not be asked at the news conference.

FAIR and your reporter, along with millions of Americans from all walks of life, would appreciate your views on these important issues as you now prepare to make immigration policy and its reform a centerpiece of your second administration.

In the meantime, pardon me, Mr. President, I must now get back to a job I am willing to do.
