Thompson will fight illegals

  • Follow Letters

Former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson believes in our country and our laws. Thompson believes illegals are illegal, and should be sent home to apply to come into this country legally. Toleration of sanctuary cities must end. Companies hiring illegals should be heavily fined. And the fence between the United States and Mexico should be built immediately. As Thompson says, this is a matter of national security.

Thompson's views are in direct opposition to the bill which Sen. John McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham, along with Sen. Ted Kennedy, tried to shove through the Senate -- and down the throats of Americans -- that would have given amnesty to the 12 million illegal immigrants in our country today. We tried amnesty before, and the problem has just mushroomed.

Sen. Thompson is also in direct opposition to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who believes that children of illegal immigrants should be given scholarships to college, thus taking away places for our children's college education.

Illegal immigrants are financially draining our country's medical and educational systems. It's time to vote for someone who believes in our laws.

Marilyn Doremus, Aiken, S.C.

Thompson may think that the

Thompson may think that the fence between Mexico and the USA is a matter of national security, but what about the airways. The country that the USA needs to worry about is those that are sending terrorist here and legally I might add. The Mexican's are not here to hurt us only to help provide for their families. They do not come here to take away from the US Citizens only to help provide the things that the US Citizens don't want to do. There are not many US Citizens that will work from sun up to sun down in the fields. They provide your fruits and vegitables. They work in the meat factories under cold and smelly conditions to provide your meat for you to buy out of the grocery stores. They pay cash not use food stamps to purchase groceries. Yes they may go to the hospitals if they get sick and not have insurrance to pay for their bill, but how many US citizens do the same thing. They are not allowed to have Welfare and Food stamps. They pay taxes unlike some US Citizens that are living off of the government. I agree not all should be here. Those that have committed crimes should be sent back to their homelands, however those that are here not causing trouble should stay!!!

With the types of job most

With the types of job most illegal aliens have and the fact that they have little or no education, if you are worried about them taking your job you must have a pretty crappy job.

Illegals apply for Food Stamps and Medicaid everyday in the state of GA, and are approved!
