Reading Lucy Munger's letter, I could not help but notice the fallacy in her opinions, which I like to call "the fallacy of denying your own opinions." Munger speaks against expensive autopsies and costly medical expenses with which illegals burden taxpayers. Then Munger, would you not agree that putting lifelines in the All-American Canal and bottles of water in the desert are excellent ideas, seeing as they would reduce the number of illegals who die or become severely injured as they try to cross the border?
Now in reference to a letter by Mr. Tylenda, who argues that the lifelines are against the very role of the U.S. Border Patrol. Well, what is the role of the Border Patrol? Tylenda remarks that it is to defend the integrity of the national boundary. Why must this be done? Tylenda again answers this for us, remarking it "is vital to (this country's) very existence."
