Arrests on Chapman Ave.

March 13, 1988

Hurrah for the Orange Police Department!

When are we going to identify the problem for what it is? We don't have "undocumented" aliens, we have "illegal" aliens. These people knowingly enter the United States illegally and even pay others to assist them in evading the law.

Others who participate in illegal activities have been unable to get the support of church groups or legal organizations to protect their "rights" as breakers of the laws of the United States. Perhaps we should all get behind burglars also.

Almost every country of the world has laws regarding uninvited guests. To my knowledge, this is the only country where natives provide assistance to those who have entered their country illegally. Even when you are a legal tourist in most countries of the world, you must certify that you will not seek employment. Why should it be different here? We cannot support the disadvantaged of the world.

We have bent over backward with the new amnesty laws, and for those who have taken advantage of them, bravo! For those who have either chosen not to, or cannot, let them return to their native lands, where they have a legal right to be and have status as citizens.
