My letter on Aug. 8, “The village is being overrun,” drew some comments that I really have to respond to.

One said how La Raza does good for many people and doesn’t support illegal immigration. It may help many people, but it’s problematic because most of them are illegally in this country.

It supports open borders and amnesty for all illegal immigrants. It supports the DREAM Act, which allows illegals to attend college at reduced rates equal to that for in-state legal residents. It supports driver’s licenses and voting rights for illegals. It opposes the Clear Law Enforcement for Criminal Alien Removal Act that empowers state and local police to enforce federal immigration laws. It opposes the REAL ID Act where applicants for driver’s licenses and photo ID verify they’re legal residents with documents that prove their identity. It advocates for full access to taxpayer-funded health care services for illegals. And it views America as a racist nation.

Another person commented that U.S. English in my letter was an advocate for English to be our official language — and the problem is? They said that Walter Cronkite, who admitted to censoring the news to fit his ideology, resigned because it was anti-Latino. I am not anti-Latino, but I am pro-American.

Another person blamed Bush, whom I have been critical of, stating that the Bush family will go down as one of the most destructive political families in our history. But Bush never unilaterally gave amnesty to 800,000 illegals who weren’t required to show proof that they had come here as children. That’s not only unconstitutional, but suicidal.

Lastly, I was told I screwed up because I didn’t mention Benghazi. Apparently liberals think its a joke when Americans are murdered, and we have a president who does nothing but go to sleep so he won’t be late for a fundraiser the next day. The real joke is Obama as president — or rather a nightmare. For the life of me, I cannot understand those who defend the indefensible of this administration and many others that preceded Obama.
