After reading the editorial in the CTFP "Now we're talking" it seems the editor is happy with the way of dealing with illegal immigrants in the U.S.A. What brought it about? One thing for sure it is votes, pure and simple. Like many in this country I feel this should have been dealt with and the border secured years ago.
It seems like poking a finger in the eye of many of our new citizens who followed the law, waited their turn to immigrate and then become U.S. citizens. Some waited several years to make it to this country. I think of this each time a new group are sworn in as new U.S. citizens. Our handling of the situation has been like spitting in the face of those great immigrants that wanted to first to become citizens and reap the opportunities.
It seems the politicians and media are saying to those who followed our laws they were stupid. All they had to do was to cross the border illegally instead of following our laws. I have always been and continue to be proud of these new citizens from other countries and what they bring to share with us.
