Ensuring our safety
I enjoyed Dr. Bradley Gitz’s column “It’s a mad, mad world.” In my civics class in high school, I remember that one of the duties of the federal government was to ensure the safety of the United States and its citizens. It appears the welfare of illegal/ legal immigrants takes precedence over this requirement.
Over the years some of us have come to the conclusion that everyone has a “right” to come to the United States. Reading Mr. Michael Dougan’s dissertation on past history of immigration I noticed he neglected to mention several recent incidents of humanitarian events that went awry. One immediately comes to mind: President Jimmy Carter allowing in a boatload of criminals from Cuba that wreaked havoc on South Florida. WILLIAM NELSON
