In regard to "The immigrants" (Cover Story, July 13), we do have a crisis of values in this country. We no longer value diversity. We fear it. How can we compete in the world when we are fighting ourselves? No one is investing time and money to create a U.S. that is a melting pot again.

As long as our leaders give us sound-bite rhetoric that sounds good but that isn't specific, we will be in a state of crisis.
