Response to Stanley Campbell’s column

In response to Stanley Campbell: “How to mix Interfaith, Turkey Day and immigration together,” Nov. 16-22.

Mr. Campbell doesn’t understand (immigration). There is legal, and there is illegal.

This Great Nation was founded on legal immigration. I don’t think there is anyone in the country who objects to legal immigration. Open the flood gates, how stupid. The American taxpayer (the ones who still have jobs) cannot support the illegals who occupy this country, medical, food, schools, etc. Can you or Mr. Campbell imagine what would happen if flood gates were opened? The United States would be another Mexico or worse.

I take offense to Mr. Campbell calling Thanksgiving (“Turkey Day”). This is one day Americans should give thanks to God they were born and live in the greatest country God ever made.

    If Kitty has a counterpoint, she failed to make it.

    If the process of legal immigration were not so tedious and just downright stupid (it takes people YEARS to legally become citizens in this country, and why? No good reason), there would not be so many illegal immigrants. Mexican immigrants in particular do not necessarily WANT to be here illegally; they want to be here fast, because they are trying to improve their lives. If the immigration process were more reasonable, we could tax more legal immigrants and encourage people to come to America legally.
