Daniel Hapeta’s July 9 letter, “Foreigners viewed as nuisance“: It’s ironic how the same can be said about the United States, especially where Hapeta writes, “Foreigners are seen as nothing short of a nuisance that needs to be overpoliced and punished . . . even if you are born and raised here.”
I hope people outside of Japan, specifically Americans, read this and realize that documented as well as undocumented workers do contribute to society. These workers don’t deserve to be made into a scapegoat because of fear. Good for Hapeta. I hope more people learn from this, and show respect toward those who don’t look Japanese but were born in Japan.
