Letter to the Editor: Immigrants should not be allowed in the U.S.


Some people are willing to accept immigrants no matter what their behavior. Democrats say we should accept those that burn our flag, cause civil disturbances, refuse to assimilate or learn our language. Yet these same illegal immigrants demand all of the rights and privileges of law-abiding Americans without living up to America’s standards.

I hear the Democrats and far-left Liberals constantly saying that even in George Washington’s time the country accepted all immigrants. I’m not sure they are even remotely correct. Take a look at a portion of a letter written by George Washington to Joshua Holmes in 1783.

Quote from the letter: “The bosom of America is open to receive not only the opulent and respected stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all nations and religions; whom we shall welcome to a participation of all our rights and privileges, if by decency and propriety of conduct they appear to merit the enjoyment.”

So, do you think that George Washington meant we should accept immigrants that cause problems within our country. Like those that burn our flag, riot and burn our buildings, refuse to learn our language, even those that murder, rape and rob from our law-abiding Americans. Let me repeat, “If by decency and propriety of conduct they appear to merit the enjoyment.” Certainly doesn’t mean every immigrant to me.

Remember our Founding Fathers once said, “We would not lose our democracy from abroad but from within.” If left unchecked, our failed immigration system will make that prediction inevitable.

To all non-Trumpers, it is not that we hate illegal immigrants; it is that we love America, believe in the rule of law and will do what is necessary to defend it, to ensure its survival for our heirs, as our ancestors did for us. Many of the non-Trumpers would feel that way, except for the fact that the democrats have convinced them, the illegals if allowed voting rights, will vote for their liberal agenda.
