Letters to the Editor

Letter to the Editor | Be patient on answers

The editors should stop whining that the Department of Homeland Security is tight-lipped about the recent workplace enforcement raids in Happy Valley. Perhaps the DHS spokescritters are just too busy fielding questions from reporters about the current illegal alien invasion at our country’s southern border. Once charges are filed against the human traffickers and the local employers (or not), I’m sure DHS and the U.S. Attorney will have lots to say to the press about their commitment to enforcing immigration laws.

In the meantime, the CDT should demand more answers from Congressman Glenn “GT” Thompson. As GT cakewalks to re-election in November, it might be helpful for voters to learn why the GOP-controlled House of Representatives hasn’t mandated the use of the e-Verify system to detect illegals’ use of fraudulent and stolen Social Security numbers, repealed the anchor baby-birthright citizenship, and funded the National Guard to capture and deport the women, infants children (and young adult men) from Central America rushing across our border this summer for their share of Obama’s DACA amnesty and our generous federal and state welfare programs.
