Curb immigration

So Lodi is upset about its recent increase in burglaries?

We haven't seen anything yet. As long as America continues to let its population increase relentlessly through both legal and illegal immigration, crime will increase as well.

The Arizona Republic, in an article dated Aug. 8, 1999, stated that "burglaries in the San Diego area alone have reached some 7,000 a year." (These are only the reported ones.) It went on to say that the San Diego Police Department wants to stop investigating them altogether.

We have brought the problem upon ourselves, and it is long past time to make severe changes in our policies. An effective screening process was given up years ago when the security conscious McCarren-Walter Immigration Act was overturned under the prodding of liberals, including Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., and we've been paying heavily ever since.

Contact your members of Congress to ask them for:

1. More funding and upgrading of procedures of the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

2. Tougher restrictions on immigration, both legal and illegal.

3. Required computer cross checking of all student visas with the INS by all colleges and universities.

Lodi is no longer the pleasant little town it used to be and it is past time we realize it.
