Voice: Entitled to her opinions about aid to illegal immigrants

May 19, 2001

Who would have thought that by raising my opinion so many people would get their dander up? But I'm glad, because maybe all this will wake up people to the fact that we are being over run with illegals. Not only all over the country, but especially here in our Valley. Where our young people find it hard to get jobs. I feel very strongly about keeping these people out of our country.

The Border Patrol does a good job, but they can't be everywhere. With summer starting to warm things up, it should be a deterrent but it won't. Anything that is done to make these people feel there is help out there is wrong. We should be doing all in our power to discourage them from trying to cross illegally. Just the other day the paper told of four more who were rescued, and that's only the start.

So tell me, what is the answer? No Ms. Mathewson, I don't hate as you say, nor am I inhumane. I may be opinionated, but at my age I'm entitled.
