We Americans always have welcomed immigrants from other parts of the world, and I am confident we shall continue to do so.
It is not asking too much, however, to expect those who enter our borders to do so legally as those before them have done. No one has given a reasonable explanation as to why Latinos should be an exception. If they are not required to obey our laws, why should African-Americans, Asian-Americans and others be expected to obey them?
The fallacious charge that attempts to enforce our immigration laws are "racist" gives us a new example of absurdity. That ridiculous charge itself reeks of racism.
No nation can long survive when its people obey its laws only when they like them. Any nation is healthy to the degree that an ever-growing number of its people live as law-abiding citizens.
