LETTER: Something of interest to citizens

To the Editor:


“Those who enter our country illegally and those who employ them disrespect the rule of law. And because we live in an age where terrorists are challenging our borders, we simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented and unchecked. Americans are right to demand better border security and better enforcement of our immigration laws.”

Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Angie Craig and Amy Klobuchar, have challenged the above position as being politically motivated by President Trump. Media reporters insist that this is a politically manufactured position by President Trump. 

To many, the thoughts regarding the above quote are a battle cry. Build the wall. To others they are immoral, critical of other cultures, lacking humane compassion for disadvantaged individuals and just plain wrong. 

Two questions. 

First: Do you think President Trump is wrong in asking for support to build a wall, as suggested in the above quote?

Second: Who is being quoted?

It is my opinion that the news media have attempted to mislead the public, and specifically, the U.S. citizens, regarding this issue, and have harangued Mr. Trump for his insistence on completing actions requested in the above quote. Please understand that Rep. Pelosi, Sen. Schumer, and former President Obama, all agree with the above quote. In fact, the above quote was made in a speech by Mr. Obama.

I just thought this might be of interest to all U.S. citizens.
