letter to editor stock art fancy pen and paper

Is there bias in your newspaper? Why were there three articles/letters against illegal immigrants and no article or letter in their defense.

Illegal immigrants are human beings who are escaping bad circumstances or trying for a better life for themselves or their families. The long-range solution is to help their countries economically so they don’t have to leave. The other solution is to revise the immigration system to let them into our country and give them a chance to become citizens.

The majority are not terrorists or prostitutes or trying to get on welfare or trying to take our jobs. They take jobs that our people won’t. They pay taxes. They are not on welfare any more than the rest of us.

They do not commit crimes any more than the rest of us. They do try to learn English. We should not fear them just because we don’t know them. At a minimum let’s stop calling them “illegal aliens” and refer to them as people. They have the same goals and aspirations as you and I. How soon we forget the laws against the Jewish citizens of Germany before World War II that were legal but morally wrong. Just because it is a law does not make it right.
