Le­gal im­mi­gra­tion

The News & Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

I am very con­cerned about the is­sue of il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion and bor­der se­cu­rity. I do not have an is­sue with peo­ple im­mi­grat­ing into our coun­try, but it should be done le­gally. For years now, both par­ties have been kick­ing the im­mi­gra­tion re­form can down the road. The amounts spent on car­ing for il­le­gal im­mi­grants’ needs far out­weigh the amount that is re­quired for the re­in­force­ment of our bor­der.

Both the Repub­li­can and Demo­cratic par­ties must work to­gether with the pres­i­dent to ac­com­plish this bor­der re­in­force­ment. In years past, Democrats have voted for and ap­proved these im­prove­ments. What has hap­pened to change this other than a dif­fer­ent pres­i­dent? Put the party pol­i­tics aside, vote for the im­proved se­cu­rity needs, and then re­form our im­mi­gra­tion laws. Our mem­bers of Con­gress should do as they swore to do when they took of­fice to pro­tect and de­fend our Con­sti­tu­tion and coun­try. – DJ Nel­son Durham
