It’s not a racist act to enforce the law

This letter will no doubt draw much comment from those who think it is racist to deport illegal entrants to this country. Illegal immigration is a crime – a federal crime. Anyone hiring an illegal becomes a conspirator in this crime. Ethnicity and/or country of origin matters little. It is not a racist act to enforce existing law.

There was a time when all law enforcement officers could “hold” a person for the U.S. Immigration Service if it was determined the person was here illegally. Deportation followed. The law enforcement oath of office includes the pledge to enforce all laws – federal, state and local.

Over the years, liberal politicians have denied this service, allowing illegals to remain here without fear of deportation. Illegals are allowed to use the court system. They are furnished with medical treatment. Most of their earnings are sent “back home.” Anyone thinking they file tax returns on this income should see me; I have a bridge I’ll sell you.

Illegals cost tax payers untold dollars in funding these services by dumb politicians seeking votes. America does not benefit from the crime of illegally crossing our borders. Send all of them home.
