Mexican import doubts

The article "US Fights Mexico Over Avocados," Nov. 13, discusses whether or not the United States should lift its current embargo and import avocados from Mexico. The US should not import from Mexico because large plantation owners, like Armando Cruz Guillen who wears a "diamond-encrusted ring," are the people who benefit from exports. But, the Mexican people as a whole do not benefit.Wealthy plantation owners reap the benefits and in turn exploit their workers. Without a market for their goods, the plantation lands could be used to feed the native people. Denise Diener, Harrisonburg, Va. Letters are welcome.
