Letter to the Editor: Questions raised about illegal immigration
Here we go again. Our illustrious leader opened the gates wide, and we are being overrun with illegal immigrants. Children are being left at the border, and for what reason? To ensure entrance into this country.
Don’t give me the bull about our ancestors being immigrants, too. Sure, they were, but I’ll bet 99% of them came in the right way. And many of them came here because of war and were granted asylum, which is a totally different scenario.
This immigration influx has been going on for years, and it seems to me that not one thing has been done about it. Not only are they allowed to enter illegally, but they are also given handouts, allowed to protest and do all the things American citizens do. Our veterans don’t receive half of what they deserve; how is that fair?
Helping our fellow man is expected and should be done everywhere, but this has gone way over the limit and has for quite some time. I wonder how many government pockets are being lined to keep the gates open. It has never been as bad as it is now, and by the looks of things, it will only get worse.
Where do we place all these people? How long before our coffers are empty? Not to mention the pandemic — how many of them have been vaccinated? What are our leaders thinking, or are they? You wonder why COVID-19 is surging. Well, here’s part and parcel as to why: The numbers keep rising with illegal immigrants. The government wants to see Americans vaccinated; the same should be seen with outsiders. This situation has definitely reached the fifth shade of stupid. Now, it borders on plain dumb.
