Letter to the editor: Turn back lawbreakers

It is beyond my powers of reason why there is such an uproar over illegal aliens entering America from Mexico and Central America. To my mind it is cut and dried: These people are simply breaking the laws of this great nation.

Anyone who works diligently, is a solid citizen and pays taxes should be outraged. The cost of interring these people as well as the indirect associated costs are enormous. Who is paying these bills? You and I. Where does it stop?

The Democrats and those of liberal bent are well into the process of ruining the country that I love. Medicare and Social Security are in financial danger and we are wasting our tax dollars on these miscreants, money that could bolster these established social programs.

Our lawmakers must pass laws that enable us to turn these people back at the border. We will see how long Mexico puts up with it.

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.
