In the Aug. 9 issue, "The melting pot and the Latino identity," Esther Cepeda attempts a balanced view of Latino-American issues. Unfortunately, much of the problems with Latinos and immigration are a consequence of the sheer numbers that have taken residence in the U.S.

In years past, the U.S. maintained immigration quotas to prevent these very problems. Too many immigrants of any nationality actually inhibit full integration into the American culture. As a result, Latinos tend to reside in Latino communities and maintain their previous cultural patterns of behavior and also their home language. They have no need, or desire? to integrate and become an "American."

Quotas need to be enforced just so our melting pot of Americans can be preserved.
