Migrants illegal entry
In response to letter from John Dickmann (“Central Americans walking to the U.S. is an opportunity for people of faith,” Nov. 7), these migrants are free to enter the United States through the proper channels, just as the people entered legally on Ellis Island; not swimming across or having coyotes bring them.

I don't believe any of the people on government support want to give up their income to them.
God may have wanted to welcome the refugees, but I think he needs to look at other problems that are present.
Editor's note: The Census Bureau estimates that in 2015, about 21 percent of people in the U.S. were receiving a form of government means-tested assistance, such as Medicaid or food stamps.
