Close our borders

Dear George:

I support you on most issues, and vehemently disagree on others. The NEA, PBS and NPR should not receive one dime of public money, but you increased their amount on the dole.

The immigration issue is not going to go away, and your limpid proposal, which amounts to amnesty, will not work and certainly will not please the citizenry. Close our borders and deport every single illegal immigrant. We protect the borders of foreign nations but leave our own virtually unprotected.

I mentioned public money above. The media and the bureaucrats call it federal dollars or government money. The Federal government has no money - the money belongs to the citizens, and we're not happy with the way it's being spent.

I could go on but these are at the top of the list of what bothers me most. My only recourse seems to be to stay home on election day.

We do not owe the rest of the world

Mr. President:

I am again appealing to you to think about the harm being done in the name of diversity and multiculturalism. We have become a nation divided - two languages, two cultures, two traditions. We must retain the America that our forefathers set out for us. The immigrants of old sought eagerly to take on the mantle of America. They shed the trappings of the old country. Now, hyphenated names, language and its retention are a badge of honor, and the harm to our country is immense.

The billions of dollars spent on education, medical attention and humanitarian services will never be overcome by what is, supposedly given back to America. It isn't “given back;” it is SENT back, with much never taxed because it is “off the books pay.” Our schools are overcrowded. Ratings have gone down because of the attention that must be given to non-English speaking students, thereby taking away from the time that should be spent with children of this country. Illegal means against the law, a simple explanation that not many in Washington seem to understand. The numbers grow by the millions each year, and it is a plain matter of survival.

We do not owe the rest of the world a living, especially those nations who do not see fit to help themselves. Many countries are using the United States as a dumping ground for the poorest among them. Please demand that those countries stop this practice, and put troops on our borders, especially the southern border to show that America is not the “patsy” that it has been for far too long. If you want to cinch the next four years, leave off politicalspeak and get tough. Stand up to the leaders of the countries who take such advantage of us and say, “No mas!” Then, you'll be able to hear “Mr. President” for the next four years.

I grew up loving this country

Dear George:

First I must say I am grateful to live in a free country, I am a US citizen and born in Cuba and brought over in 1967 when I was just 9 yrs old with my older brother and my aunt. My grandparents stayed behind and so did my parents, coming to America was like going to the other side of the world, I grew up loving this country and still value my heritage.

Never again did I see my grandfather who fought very hard to set us free from communist Cuba, therefore it is a stronger feeling I have for this country and our freedom. I hear all things going on now because the new laws implemented in Cuba now, I know you are our leader and we need to finish with the only dictator that took my childhood dreams away from my family, people here are mistaken and they are saying well “Bush” is doing this, what about Clinton when he changed the law that you must step the land in order to stay in America, I truly think we should point out what the democrats did by making that change against immigrants fleeing Castro.

Please show the difference on what you stand for, I am Republican and strongly behind you. Thank you and god bless you and yours.
