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.

Yes, we don't know the dangers
No, they are harmless to others
Maybe, but they're still safe
We should do what we can to encourage use since they're less harmfull than cigarettes
Who cares, they're lame
