German anti-foreigner riots

In the Opinion page article "Germany's Rising Nationalism: Everyone Deserves Some Blame," Oct. 21, the author makes it look like a sin that Germans are protesting the huge numbers of aliens arriving in the country. When, in your own country, you cannot find a job because scores of foreigners hold some of the best positions; when your tax dollars are used to subsidize aliens; when a majority of your citizens live in extreme poverty; or when you lose your cultural identity because of the new culture impose d by the newcomers, you realize the importance of nationalism. The borders of every country must be respected. Wilfredo Torres, New York Director, Committee Against Foreign Migration to Puerto Rico
