O. Ricardo Pimentel continues to do readers a disservice by repeatedly playing the immigration race card.

Immigration is a force that has made America what it is, reflecting our core values and the distinctive greatness of our country. However, the issue was, is, and is likely to be illegal immigration - a point Pimentel refuses to consider.

Public policy debates should be conducted based on the merits of immigration, without coarse language inferring that some people are scum, the demagoguery of those who support the Protect Arizona Now initiative, or the highly offensive suggestion that Arizona will be remembered for morphing Ellis Island into Devil's Island.

Our state and the level of discussion on this issue deserve better.
