I read with interest the Aug. 12 Point of View “Less fear, more safety in N.C. with license law” by Carmen Rodriguez. She is in the United States illegally, yet makes the comment, “I want to be a responsible driver and follow the laws of this state.” So, she wants to abide by state laws but not of this country?
There are limits to what is acceptable and tolerable. Illegal immigration falls into the category of not being acceptable or tolerable.
Imagine someone standing in line for hours to purchase tickets to a big-name concert or sporting event. Then, several people cut in line ahead and are able to buy their tickets before her, leaving none left for her. How would she feel?
Well, move that example up several tiers to those foreigners who are abiding by the laws of this country and trying to immigrate to the United States legally. How do we think they feel, knowing they keep getting pushed back thanks, in part, to all of the illegal immigrants here?
This issue is not about “immigration,” it’s about “illegal immigration,” and the time is now for U.S. citizens to take back our country.
Illegal immigrants do not belong in this country.
