Letter: U.S. needs to enforce its immigration laws

U.S. needs to enforce its immigration laws

Welcoming new immigrants to America, our government expected them to make legal application, swear allegiance, learn English and assimilate. Why is it necessary to “reform” this system instead of enforcing it?

Introducing Spanish as a second language makes the United States less efficient and introduces serious additional risks to hazardous military operations, dangerous workplace scenarios and exacting situations such as hospitals and operating rooms.

The last amnesty clearly congratulated and encouraged interlopers to sponge our resources and flood our depressed labor market with impunity. Illegal foreign nationals responded by multiplying and hijacking our political system instead of asserting citizenship in their own countries.

When our government establishes a system whereby we outsource manufacturing, then serve as Latin America’s welfare system by offering perks to millions of citizens to violate our borders, who does this serve?
