Letter to the editor: We must enforce immigration laws

Regarding the article “Visits to border detention centers widen Congressional divide” (July 22, TribLIVE): Back in 2014 President Obama said that there was a crisis at the southern border.

Back in 2016 President Trump said that there was a crisis at the southern border and now is trying to do something about fixing the problem, and now he’s a racist.

Is it that he’s doing something, or is it because the Democrats hate him so much ?

If you have laws on immigration, why don’t they want them enforced?

Back in the early 1900s, my great-grandparents came to this country through Ellis Island; if you were deemed sick you were sent back to your country of origin. How many are coming across our border now who are sick with new drug-resistant diseases, or are drug pushers and killers ?

If Democrats are saying we’re not going to enforce those law, then are they going to say murder is OK and not enforce those laws, too?

Sen. Bob Casey and Congress continue to do nothing and complain about what the other side won’t agree with them on.

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.
