Stop Obama’s sub­ver­sion of im­mi­gra­tion laws

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters -

Pres­i­dent Obama is by­pass­ing Congress so he can cre­ate laws that he knows will be de­bated. Now he wants to re­write the de­por­ta­tion laws (“Sub­vert­ing im­mi­gra­tion laws in the name of re­form,” Web, April 25).

Il­le­gal aliens are people who have crossed the bor­der with­out pa­per­work autho­riz­ing them to be in Amer­ica. That is the first law they have bro­ken, and just for that they need to be sent back to the coun­tries they came from.

Mr. Obama needs to en­force the im­mi­gra­tion laws we al­ready have. I don’t buy that the laws “don’t work.” If they don’t work, it’s be­cause the pres­i­dent and other people in the govern­ment do not want to en­force them. When you catch an il­le­gal, and he doesn’t have a rea­son to be here, he should be de­ported; end of story. Govern­ment doesn’t have the right to ig­nore our laws.

Mr. Obama needs to go through Congress, and not do things on his own. Also, states should not be mak­ing laws so il­le­gals can stay here. Some states are giv­ing il­le­gals ben­e­fits such as in-state school tu­ition rates, driver’s li­censes and health care.

Fi­nally, we need to se­cure our borders. How many times do we need to talk about this? We can’t take care of our le­gal cit­i­zens now. Look how many people are on food stamps and how many are out of jobs. We can’t af­ford to keep il­le­gals here, too. VIC­TO­RIA COSTANZA Sacra­mento, Calif.
