Letter to the editor: Crossing borders illegally makes you a criminal

We don’t always agree with our Roosevelt County commissioners, but this instance we agree 100 percent.

When the illegal immigrants crossed our borders they made themselves criminals. Our governor and county commissioners had nothing to do with this. Anytime you disobey our laws you are a criminal. Our laws were made for a reason and we think if the citizens from other countries want to come into the United States, they should do so the way the laws were written and not slip into our country. We would bet you wouldn’t want to be caught slipping into Mexico.

If these foreign citizens come into our country on a ‘green card’ or by other legal means, we have no problem with issuing them a driver’s license.

Maybe our unemployment wouldn’t be so high if illegals weren’t taking jobs. And maybe our Medicaid wouldn’t be running in the red.
