I am a 70-year-old independent, legal American citizen. I, like millions of other legal citizens, served our country to protect our borders. Recently your front page featured a picture of illegal immigrants protesting and demanding asylum. When did we ever think that we legal citizens would see such a brazen act from people who don’t belong here? Am I missing something? They are breaking the law no matter how you look at it. Since when do criminals have the right to protest and demand? They snuck into our country illegally.
I am sick of our country being broke. My daughter and son-in-law both have full and part time jobs and still can’t make ends meet. Taxes continue to rise and we are responsible for paying for immigrants' children, food stamps, health care, schooling, special teachers, and special lines at the bank and everywhere I go. These lawbreakers have been given more freebies and perks because of organizations like La Raza, which coerce politicians that need votes to stay in office. And we all know what "ethical" politicians are in office and how they respond to voters illegal or otherwise.
Legal citizens have become gutless, by not admitting that illegal immigrants are lawbreakers. Hundreds of thousands of soldiers have given their lives and limbs to protect our borders. We continue to "slap our military in the face" by rewarding these brazen people. What a disgrace and outrage.
