Letter to the editor: Put Americans first

I am so angry right now, I could spit. My 93-year-old mother, American born and raised, needs financial help to stay in her home until her time comes. My sister and I provide 24-hour care to her. I have tried to get financial aid from all the sources available to seniors. Nothing!

My father was a Marine serving in World War II. Veterans Affairs help, forget about it. But I tune in to every Democrat running for office. They vow to give anyone entering our country illegally rights and financial aid . These are people who claim they want to be Americans but their first act is to break our laws.

What about Americans who are struggling? What about the people who are not classified as poor enough for Medicaid but do not have enough money to live properly? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others are fighting to give illegals a better life than Americans. Wake up! Americans first!

President Trump is trying to take care of the citizens of our country before all others. What is demonic about that? What is racist about that? Americans come in all colors, shapes and sizes. But the one thing we all have in common is we are Americans. Trump is fighting for us, all of us.

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.
