This issue needs attention, now

As an almost 50-year voter, I am appalled to see that our politicians fear to do the right thing when it comes to enforcing immigration laws!

Yes, fear — and fear right here in our own country. They fear not for our country but for their own political futures! We all know what happens when a country is overwhelmed by illegal immigrants. Many of their ancestors are our neighbors. We have the means to repel the flood of illegals but our own political representatives refuse to do the will of the very people who elected them. Certainly I respect and welcome those who have come here legally but the influx of illegals must stop.

I have never been a one-issue voter but now the time has come. Let’s put the fear in our politicians by letting them know that if they do not wholeheartedly support strict enforcement of immigration laws, we will not vote for them!
