Enforce immigration laws

I am a simple man. I cannot understand why neither party is capable or willing to answer one question about immigration. This important question is being avoided by both parties.

My question is simple: In 1984, Congress — led by Republicans in the Senate and Democrats in the House — passed an immigration bill and President Ronald Reagan signed it into to law. Why aren’t we enforcing that law?

Do you believe in America’s sovereignty, liberty and freedom for our prodigy and equality for all our citizens? If you do, there can be only one answer: self-determination, American style.

We have become complacent with a laissez-faire attitude about our country’s blessings and the gifts bestowed upon us.

I believe that those who want to hurt our country are using our open borders to gain their goals.

Once and for all, U.S. government, are you willing to enforce the current immigration laws to the letter? Or, are you willing to write an enforceable immigration law that keeps the lantern of Lady Liberty burning for immigrants?

Follow the letter of the law so that all will know what we stand for as Americans.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
