Letter: Two choices for America’s future
Regarding the mayors denouncing ICE, it’s always been my opinion that finding fault with something, without offering a solution, is both hypocritical and “easy.”
ICE was started in the wake of September 11, 2001, when most Americans joined together in protest of the horrific attack on our country. Both parties stood on the steps of the Capitol, demanding justice and retribution. Here we are now — almost 20 years later — denouncing the very agency that was formed to prevent that event from ever happening again. So far, so good!
We have two choices.
No. 1: become a mass of land in the northern hemisphere without borders, no longer a country and allow people to come and go at will regardless of their countries of origin.
No. 2: Fix our immigration laws for once and for all. Grant full citizenship to anyone and everyone here now who has not committed a felony and shows the desire to work and become self-supportive.
Build the wall and enforce the laws that are already on the books. Sanctuary cities have to go. Who decides which option is best for America? We do — the people — We decide the same way we elect our president — in the voting booth.
