Letter body: 

If we could eliminate our U.S. citizenship, perhaps we might get better representation from those we’ve elected to represent us here in Oregon, such as Gov. Brown, Sens. Wyden and Merkley, Reps. Blumenauer and Schrader and a few others.

It appears that these folks don’t think the illegal aliens should be required to obey our laws and that we should finance their every need, while our budgets remain out of control.

While it’s our responsibility to elect intelligent people who will represent us, it’s obvious that we have failed our responsibility also.

Those who are supporting sanctuaries for these lawbreakers should wake up. The alarms are already ringing. So please stop hitting the snooze button and represent us as your job requires.

Does the future hold any hope for our country with the kind of leadership we have here in Oregon?
