LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Illegal entrance into US must stop now

The illegal-alien situation in our country is reaching a point that will probably only get worse, and I mean worse!

The influx of illegal aliens has increased dramatically in the past six months. They are streaming in, and there is no end in sight.

With this increase of illegal aliens, criminal activity had drastically increased, according to the GAO (Government Accountability Office). Here are the numbers of crimes committed PER DAY by illegal aliens based on GAO numbers in just a few crime categories: Kidnappings — 9; murders — 15; sex offenses — 43; burglaries — 71; and assaults, 131. Illegals likely commit murder at 10 times the rate of all U.S. inhabitants. Those figures come from 2014 statistics, and the numbers have to have increased in 2015! What is the only answer? The illegal aliens in our country must be deported, and deported as promptly as possible. If these illegal aliens can “sneak” into our country, they can be ushered out. If will take an enormous effort, but it can be done and must be done.

After World War II, then-President Eisenhower made this statement:

“The rise in illegal border crossings by Mexican illegal immigrants to the current rate of more than one million cases a year has been accompanied by relaxation in ethical standards extending all the way from the farmer-exploiters of this contraband labor to the highest levels of the Federal government.” Even President Eisenhower failed to mention that we were not enforcing our immigration laws then, either.

That was then, and this is now; we have approximately 11.5 million illegal immigrants in our country. They cost us, the American taxpayers, billions of dollars each year. The only thing that we can do is make them leave, no matter how ugly it gets.

For the most part, families have entrenched themselves in our country to take advantage of our country. Most could care less about our country and most do not want to become legal citizens. They do not want to learn how to speak English. They do not have to speak English. Signs are posted in Spanish, as are the familiar signs reading “Se Habla Español.”

Some radio stations are in Spanish, some movies are in Spanish, some cable TV stations are in Spanish, some church services are all in Spanish and Spanish interpreters are in every government office dealing with the public.

Most illegal aliens speak nothing but Spanish, whereas all the other immigrants (legal) must learn how to speak English in order to survive in the United States.

The United States is in an enormous dilemma and unless some drastic action is taken really soon, the greatest country in the world will continue to decline. We cannot put up with these illegal immigrants. The illegal aliens knew they were breaking the law when they illegally came into our country. Most of the liberal goodie-goodies in the

U.S. will say it’s only a misdemeanor and we should look the other way or institute more sanctuary cities, or maybe even counties!

Let’s look at some examples of misdemeanor crimes committed in our country: simple assault, disorderly conduct, DUI/DWI, domestic violence, indecent exposure, theft, tresspass and vandalism, just to mention a few. Think what our country would be like if we treated those misdemeanors like we do illegal entry into our country!

How long would it take the illegal-alien population to find out what are some of the misdemeanor crimes and figure they can commit these crimes with little worry and few consequences!

Something has to be done. Write to all your representatives and express your feelings about illegal immigrants. It is almost a sure bet that the average American citizen wants something done about the illegal immigrants. For God’s sake, start raising hell NOW!
