Letter to the Editor: Applause for Trump on immigration issues

Finally, perhaps there is a small light at the end of this very lengthy tunnel after all. I don’t usually watch the news or presidential speeches, or any political nonsense, but I just happened to flipping through the channels when I came across President Trump talking about the caravan of illegal immigrants trying to enter our country.

He stated that Mexico offered them assistance but they refused their help. I wholeheartedly agree with our President Trump when he says our country can no longer absorb the influx of illegals. We have carried that burden long enough. I also agree that just because an immigrant is born here does not make them a naturalized citizen.

I agree as well with the fact that longtime green card holders who have not attempted to become legal citizens of this country need to be deported; yesterday. We must be the only country on the globe that has a flashing neon sign on every border that reads; come on in, free handouts.

There are poverty-level Americans, including seniors, children and veterans that are far more entitled to government aid than aliens. Our leaders need to come together and take a strong stand against this issue. How many times does it have to addressed before something gets done?

To adopt a child from overseas, the citizenship process has to be in effect before the adoption is finalized; at the cost of the adoptive parents. There is no lapse in that time frame, what’s the difference here? It’s not for the sake of asylum that illegals come here, but until they enter the right way, turn them around and head them in the direction from whence they came.

I also agree with the catch/release stance; catch, and do not release until the hearing. Too many are released and fail to show up for trials/ hearings; of which there should be none if they are here illegally.

And again, if you are not a legal citizen of this country you do not have entitlement to any government aid, no right to vote, protest, etc. for at least trying where others never made an attempt.
