Letter to the editor: Disaster at the border
The Democrats have done little to stop the crisis at the border. They don’t seem to be interested in stopping caravans or filling in immigration law loopholes. They have tried to block everything President Trump has done to control the crisis through what appears to be biased judges and their refusal to vote for solutions. Their sanctuary cities refuse to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to enforce laws that are on the books.
They continue to hand out rewards that entice more illegals to come here. A recent report in the Washington Examiner alleges that Texas Rep. Veronica Escobar and her staff go to Mexico to coach illegals on what to say to gain entrance (crisis solution, no; fraud, yes).
It seems their humanitarian effort encourages people who come here to be reliant on taxpayers and not to be self-sufficient. This is the party of the “high road,” but this road will at some point make us a third world country.
