Letter to the editor: Politicians must fix immigration mess

| Sunday, Dec. 16, 2018, 10:03 a.m.

An open letter to members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives:

You were elected to protect our country, but you are going to happily allow one judge to defend our national sovereignty, while you go home. Isn’t that politically correct of you!

You have run your mouths ad nauseum about immigration problems and have done absolutely nothing to solve them for years. Now your reckless irresponsibility has caused a crisis that must be dealt with and dealt with now.

The circumstances will get worse, as more “invaders” are encouraged to arrive in “caravans” at our borders seeking “asylum.” (Incidentally, if you come by the thousands, carrying your home country’s flag, and force your way into another country, you are an invader, not an immigrant)

When will you stop talking and start deliberating? The catastrophe is here. Get your sorry butts to Washington and stay there until you resolve the chaos you have allowed to fester and grow. If you need to work through the holidays, so be it; you were the ones who chose politics over deliberation.

Stop pretending you are stupid, dumb or have no common sense. Most of you have agreed, at one time or another, our borders must be protected if we are to remain a sovereign nation. Your grandchildren, as well as ours, deserve no less.

We, the people, the citizens of the United States, demand you do your job. Enact proper legislation before you cause more unrepairable damage.

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.
