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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
