Letter: Immigrants

July 15, 2014 

The liberals of the Democratic far left keep telling me that America must open its doors and let the human tidal wave of illegal immigrants they call refugees pour in, especially children escaping the violence in their own countries like Mexico, Honduras and the rest of Central America.

However, in the USA, cities like Chicago and elsewhere violence, murder, rape and gang warfare takes place every day but I have not heard of a stampede of Americans running to the Canadian border crying let us in, we're refugees running for our lives. So send these people back and secure the border.
