No outrage until now?

To the editor:

In response to the letter to the editor, ‘Recall woes of a stranger’, regarding foreign immigrants coming into our country, as a practicing Roman Catholic, I comment:

Perhaps the liberal Catholic hierarchy in our church has the inclination to desire open borders so as to replace people that have left our church, not so much out of concern for the illegal, but for the wrong reason. To replace lost revenue within.

U.S. policies and standards set in reference to illegal border crossing under President Trump are the same policies as set under the Obama administration. I wonder, where were the protesters and proponents for open borders then? Such strange silence from the political left. I heard nothing but crickets. This illegal immigration issue is nothing new, but this hateful rhetoric, division and vitriol coming from the left now against President Trump is deafening to the millions of us that have entrusted the president with our national security.

Our concern about unvetted illegals entering our country, many of whom are bringing with them sex trafficking, criminal activity … and violent MS13 gang members are poisoning our youth with drugs for great profit.

If open borders people are really contrite concerning the alien, should they not instead demand change in the corrupt … Mexican government, the real root of this issue, and work toward humanitarian standards so their people can happily and peacefully reside in their own country?

NO BORDERS, NO NATION!
