Letter to the Editor: Fix the border

— Fix the border

To the editor:

Amnesty again? I would have thought we learned how well “comprehensive immigration reform” worked back in 1986. Oh, but this one is called “roadmap to citizenship.”

I am sure it will be the greatest idea yet and America will be all the better for it. It won’t cost taxpayers much, if the word trillions no longer has meaning.

In the Senate version of this bill, the border is not secured as promised. This bill, however, will promise to spend more taxpayer money, run up our national debt and give illegal aliens a continuous straight path to America, no matter what country they are from.

The House has not yet passed their version of the “roadmap to citizenship.” A battle is brewing in the chambers about fixing the border first. Some in the House are bucking the leadership and trying to force a stand for border security. I hope these brave elected officials that are standing up to secure our borders will have your support. It is time to get involved. We are slowly losing the America we know and love.

From the beginning, we were told that we needed to fix immigration reform (immigration laws our government decided not to enforce, thus causing all the problems we have today at the southern border). This new amnesty bill is nothing more than the same lies and deceit we were told years back. It is time to call your elected officials and tell them you are watching them and you want them to vote no and drop this bill. Fix the border first.
