We cannot put the safety of world's children above safety of our own

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

The president is requesting funds to help alleviate the border crisis with the illegal teens and children crossing the border. He created the crisis by not enforcing our immigration laws and publicizing that he is not enforcing them.

Before we give him any money, we should send troops to the border to stop ANYONE from illegal crossing.

Before we give him any money we should send judges to the border. When the illegals are put on a bus to a location where the judges are located. The illegals will go before the judge immediately and the judge will make a decision if allowed to stay or if to be deported. If to be deported, then they will be bussed to a military base to be put on a military plane and brought back to the country they came from.

As it is, 90 percent of illegals do not show up a year later for court case. 90 Percent. So why do we keep doing it? This is insane.

How soon before the illegals will be coming to N.H. to take jobs away from N.H. citizens?

I am all for an immigration policy to be changed but not granting amnesty as part of it.

Twice we gave amnesty and were told the border would be strengthened. Obama said a year ago that the border was secure. We can see how those lies worked out.

It is time for the borders to be secured now and as a result of Obama's lax immigration policy, we must send troops to the border. The president has reduced fines for businesses that hire illegal aliens. It is time for employers to be mandated to check status of workers and punished if severely if they hire illegals. If punished, then maybe the employers will not hire illegals again and again.

Obama said he would write an executive order if Congress did not want to work with him. The president seems to think that if you do not do exactly what he wants then you are not working with him. The president has to compromise about something at some point.

No more compromises from Congress. Our national security depends on secure borders, especially with the happenings in the Middle East.

Millions of Americans are looking for jobs and cannot find them.

About 5 years ago I was looking at contractors to do some work in my home. One was a tile installer. He came from California. I asked him why he moved to N.H., as it is so different from California. He told me, that he was having trouble finding work as more and more illegals came into the state and would work for lower wages and he could not compete. Here was an American who had to relocate away from family to keep working because illegals were taking a job away from an American who wanted to work.

Medical personnel were told not to tell the media about the diseases these illegal children have. Our immigration laws require immigrants to be immunized. This is to protect the citizens of the U.S.

My son had to sign up with Selective Service to get a driver"s license and for college aid. The young illegal immigrant boys do not have to sign up for selective service. Why are we giving liberties to people who break the law and have to pay for the liberties with our American children? This is insane!

I feel for these illegal immigrant children and teens. I am a mother. But my first priority is my son. Yes my son. I owe him to keep this country so that it is best for him. My son is my priority and will always be my first and foremost priority as with all parents in the .US. We cannot put the safety of other children before the safety of our children.

No more Mr. President. Secure the borders with troops NOW. Give the illegals immediate court date and if decision to deport, deport immediately NOW. You can easily write an executive order to do these 2 things. And then and only then will give you money and for that only. . .
