Tighten U.S. immigration

  • Follow Letters

Playing the blame game lacks understanding in the opinions expressed in the media.

The president points to the Republican House as being controlled by radicals. That statement puts the blame on every citizen whom House members represent. His refusal to negotiate or postpone the decision on Obamacare for a year (into an election year) is understandable but unacceptable – thus we have a shutdown. He has drawn a red line for forced socialistic medicine. The possibility remains that the red line may turn pink or even be disowned, as it was with Syria.

The next event in the crisis is the national debt ceiling. Bear in mind that more than half of the present debt was incurred with Obama as president, and he isn’t finished yet.

More recently we have news on the upside – the successful Delta Force raid in Libya and the Navy SEALs attack in Somalia are a tribute to our military. We can anticipate coverage by the commander in chief, with the usual number of “I’s” in his statement. Congratulations to the military intelligence, planning and execution of the missions by our brightest and best.

We are a nation weary of war – not 12 years, but more than 200 years now. The conflict with Muslim nations began with President Jefferson’s decision to refuse to pay ongoing tribute to the Barbary pirates. a group of Muslim countries, for the safe passage of ships, and he ordered military action without congressional approval. The Marines’ Hymn recalls the “shores of Tripoli.”

The solution to the radical Islamic plague of brutality and murderous insanity has spread around the world. The solution lies within their own people who are not infected. Until they overcome their fear of the fanatics and out them to authorities, the plague will continue to spread.

Since we are unable to identify and separate the sheep from the goats, our only effective action is to stem the immigration of Muslims and deport those found connected to terrorism by any means. This may sound in conflict with the melting pot of immigrants that has formed our nation, but we must prevent it from turning into a chamber pot.

Totally agree with the letter writer.

The phrase "melting pot" means that people come to America and become Americans, shed their loyalty to their former country, accept American values, and embrace American culture. Our national motto means "Out of many one".

The problem we now have is so many want to create a "mosaic" whereby the country is not blended and melted into one. Instead it is made of of tiny individual pieces where the new ones are merely just as they were in their old country with no blending into America. What you end up with is enclaves of multi-cultures, values and societies in America rather than "Out of many one".

More and more immigrants are merely wanting to change physical location to America and not shed old their values and loyalties. As long as we allow that to happen we will continue on a downward slide to balkanization.

The canard that the left continues to spout, "We are a nation of immigrants" leaves out one important word, "legal" immigrants.

We need to have ports of entry as we used to with Ellis Island and any one who does not come through a port of entry is illegal and goes to jail and is deported.

No one anywhere in the world has a God-given right to come to the United States. It's a privilege which we grant.

The Republicans in The House should be focusing their arguement on this issue of postponing EVERY ASSPECT of Obamacare EXCEPT the individual mandate!

Socialized medicine would be less expensive than Obamacare, BUT I believe we should let the gov. handle the Obamacare money instead of making the private insurers rich!!

Syria WAS AN IMBARESMENT to Obama, AND I still am not sure it is being handled properly by The Russians.

GRANTED, Obamacare is probably going to add to the debt, BUT to blame Obama for the continued cost of GWB's wars is totally not Obama's fault!!

This country, and probaly many countries, were forged out of war, BUT that is not to condone it.

I don't doubt that this a historical fact, BUT I believe the current "HATRED" is that the religious leaders have convinced a large number that the "westerners" are evil and should be distroyed!!

I agree with this statement, BUT you can not just over-look their opinions about U.S.!! Who many of our own people believe that many of U.S. have fallen down in the proverbial "GUTTER" when it comes to morality??!! Plus, I am sure many of them who would like to become American citizens are being held up strictly because of their ethenisity!!

Even though Sen's. McCain and Graham want to arm the Syrian "freedom fighters", we don't know who "THE GOOD PEOPLE" are!

VERY GOOD STATEMENT!! Even if it takes limiting the number of immigrants and doing intence checks on the ones who are allowed in, THIS MUST BE DONE!!

Freedom of movement is a human right.

The better way to control immigration is to recognize what the incentives are and adjust accordingly. Eliminating corn subsidies would go a long way towards reducing illegal immigration from Mexico, because Mexican agriculture would again be competitive enough to retain a workforce, and then there would be more construction and other work available there, too.

If you're really feeling hysterical about Muslims taking over, however prematurely, then that gives you yet another reason to ask our representatives why our visa rules are so unfair towards eastern Europeans.

Well, you believe incorrectly! Their motto is "Death to the infidels" and that includes their Muslim next door neighbor if he doesn't share the same narrow view of Islam.

Their "God" tells them that all infidels must be converted or enslaved or killed. No exceptions! That interpretation extends to their own blood relatives.

Thus the prevalence of "Honor killings" with these weirdos.

Yup. These animals make far right wacko Christians (or fill in the blank for most any other religion) look like Mother Teresa.

One side of my immigrant ancestors, one of 4 greatgrandfathers

And immigrant wife came here wanting to be Americans. He named my grandfather John Henry, who named his son Charles Edward.

I have no problem with people who want to keep up their family traditions. But I do have a serious problem with people who come to America, who do not embrace her laws and tradtions, and who want to fundamentally change us.

I see that a couple of thumb trolls

don't like me calling Islamist fanatics "weirdos". Sorry 'bout that. I wouldn't have called them that if I could have come up with a more demeaning description.
