Crime Problems and Immigration

August 31, 1992

The conventions came and went. Neither the Democrats or Republicans mentioned the immigration problem.

Every survey shows that all border states and ports of entry struggle with legal and illegal immigrants. We are obligated under the law to take certain immigrants. Why do we allow all their relatives to follow?

The Mexican border is a joke. If a group is picked up running through traffic (your pictures), the police are not allowed to turn them over to the immigration authorities. The courts have said each of these illegals are entitled to a lawyer (Aug. 19)?

The school budget would be balanced immediately if we simply went to the schools and checked on legal birth certificates or papers. Emergency rooms would see a huge decrease in their workloads if they were deported. Some official government agency must want the illegals in this country. The ordinary taxpayer is just puzzled.
