Answer to Lucy Munger of Holtville, to her letter in the Imperial Valley Press on April 13:
I'm one of the persons involved with Project for Immigrant Lives. I've been for three years.
1. We don't know whether placing water in the desert or lifelines in the All-American Canal will save lives. We do have a high regard for any human life. We believe in going into action to save lives instead of talking about it forever and not trying anything. We don't want the people to die and if you have a realistic idea on how to keep them from dying, we'll try your idea.
2. I have learned from the border-crossers that they find themselves in the middle of no hope. They have no hope in the place they left. To them the only hope to survive in life is work in the USA. In a situation like this all danger is irrelevant. They will come, lifelines or no lifelines, but they shouldn't pay with their lives for seeking work.
