Letter: Democrats ‘No Border’ policy
August 14, 2014, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

A sovereign country has a right/duty to protect its national border from invading foreigners. America was founded by legal immigrants, not illegal immigrants. No foreigner – from England, Russia, South Africa or even Mexico – has a “right” to illegally enter a sovereign or to demand free driver’s licenses, college money, health care, education, etc.   

Eighty-two percent of illegals entering America are from Mexico. There are bad effects of illegal immigration, including gangs, crime, drugs and the drain of city-state-federal taxpayer dollars. Millions of American-born war veterans, the poor, the homeless and foster children still need taxpayer funded services. 

Democrats promise an open “no border” policy — with free taxpayer-provided services — to Mexicans/Hispanic advocacy groups in return for a promise to continue voting Democrat at state/national elections. Republicans and Independents cannot compete with Democrats willingly selling out the soul of America just for Democrats’ selfish goals for power. Encouraging illegals to jump ahead of patiently-waiting immigrants who follow America’s legal immigration rules is like giving free Starbucks coffee/food to the jerk cutting ahead of everyone waiting in line — it’s not right and sends the message that Democrats selectively follow laws they want and disregard others.
