Opinionated soundbites: The border fence

  • Two New Jersey mayors participating in an immigration discussion at Princeton University yesterday agreed that the U.S.-Mexico border fence is "a waste of taxpayer money".
  • Meanwhile, an eloquent reader of a central Illinois newspaper wrote an editor's letter yesterday in which he said that securing the border is necessary before considering immigration reform.
  • A small California newspaper's editorial yesterday read: "No matter how much money is thrown at securing the fence on the border between the U.S. and Mexico (...) illegal immigration is as American as baseball, apple pie and Chevrolet."
  • And yet another newspaper reader, this time one of the Washington Post, today writes: "The idea of doing border enforcement first and then addressing the other matters is a formula for making certain the other matters are never addressed, because sufficient political trade-offs would no longer be available."

It is shameful that the WaPo endorses the idea of using enforcement -- which Americans are legally entitled to demand, because we pay for it through our tax dollars -- as blackmail in exchange for amnesty for lawbreakers.

Maryst,

The WaPo link is to a letter to the editor written by a reader. The opinions are not that of the WaPo.

MaryST said...

Thank you I have noted that. However, this is also the WaPo's position, and that is the reason why the letter was chosen.

Sorry Maryst but letters to the editor do not necessarily = editorial

I agree anonymous but I know full well the open borders stance of the WaPo and they are in full agreement with this letter writer.
