Letter body: 

I find it rather sad that there are so many of our state and local politicians, local leaders, and citizens who want to support illegal entrants over citizens of the United States.

I know that in the liberal town of Eugene it is considered heresy to make a statement like that. However, as Attorney General Jeff Sessions has said, we are a nation of laws that need to be followed.

Since many of our elected leaders support not following immigration laws today, what laws will they not want to follow tomorrow? Maybe tomorrow there will be no penalty for robbery, murder, rape, speeding, abusing a child, not following affirmative action or allowing a pet to overheat in a car.

For the benefit of all the citizens of the United States, we need to follow all the laws of our country. If you don’t like a law, do what President Trump just did with Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival executive order. He asked Congress to take a look at it and add or modify the law as it saw fit.

Please don’t allow state and local politicians and leaders to spend one cent of our tax dollars fighting for something that clearly needs to be addressed by Congress.
