Il­le­gals’ crimes

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

I take is­sue with Bill O'Reilly’s state­ment, “Doesn’t it make sense that any per­son who is in the­coun­try­il­le­gal­lyinthe­first­place,be­de­ported when­con­victed­of­com­mit­tin­gacrime­onAmer­i­can soil?” (“Stan­dards needed in im­mi­gra­tion de­bate,” Com­men­tary, May 14 edi­tion) The source of much of Amer­i­cans’ anger is the fact that the il­le­gals are il­le­gally here in the first place. That is the crime. It shouldn’t take their com­mit­ting an­other crime to be de­ported. They haveal­ready­commit­tedthe­crime­by­be­inghere.

The pun­dits say that Repub­li­cans lost the last elec­tion over the war in Iraq. No, we lost the elec­tion be­cause so few Repub­li­can pseudo lead­ers had the gump­tion to stand up and do some­thing about the il­le­gal hordes, with the pres­i­dent lead­ing the list.

If China and Rus­sia, with borders far longer than ours, can close their borders, it is only a lack of will that still al­lows the in­va­sion from the south. Pa­tri­cia S. Brod­er­ick Mooresville, North Carolina
