Immigrants should follow the law

I have a theory that a couple of the daily Bless Your Heart contributors are the same Looney Tunes that respond on reflector.com. I can’t be sure because they hide under anonymity. For example is the BYH that there was no federal law that required or suggested family separation before Attorney General Sessions enforced the law.

I refer you to the homeland security act of 2002, Public Law 1-7-296. It reads as follows: (I) The term “placement” means the placement of an unaccompanied alien child in either a detention facility or an alternate to such facility (when) (II) no parent or legal guardian in the United States is available to provide care and physical custody.

The majority of these alien children were sent unaccompanied or their parents broke the law when they crashed the border. The 2002 Senate voted 90 for the law and 9 against. Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein and other Democrats voted in favor of the law.

Two days ago (June 22), my brother was laid to rest. He was a Vietnam vet and a Purple Heart recipient. He carried an enemy bullet in his right shoulder for more than 45 years. It was painful until his last days. He was not an Army volunteer but was drafted. He chose to follow the law rather than dodge the draft. If illegal immigrants would follow the law, these situations could be averted.

And last, if you have something honest to contribute, why not write a letter to the editor. I’m sure The Daily Reflector would print it. But remember, you will have to give your real name, address and phone number.

In 1986, internationally-renowned singer Janet Jackson made the inspirational song, “What Have You Done for Me Lately?” Elected officials should actualize the meaning of that song. Oftentimes, elected officials make shallow promises, kiss babies, and hypocritically “press the…

Consider the following Republican presidents: Richard M. Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. Each a two-term, or twice-elected president; each a more disastrous presidency than its predecessor on the list (Nixon posing a threat to the Constitution via Watergate, Reagan posing a greater threat…

Orange County District Court Judge Beverly Scarlett recently compared Silent Sam to Hitler and, by extension, the human suffering of slaves to that of the Holocaust. Based upon her remarks, it is not clear how well Judge Scarlett knew Sam or Adolf Hitler.

Statistically speaking, Sam had not…

This letter is in response to the letter titled “Unjustly defaming Dixon again” by Willie Roberts that appeared in the Wednesday, Oct. 31 edition.

Roberts stated that “White women have historically been used, wittingly or unwittingly, to destroy black men’s lives. Their…

What’s with you, Vic Corey? One second you are crowing how Trump is the reason for you being richer, the next you are, as always, worshipping your idea of a “new Christian.”

First, the U.S. is not a business; it is a country. Trump’s planned bankruptcies, his finding ways…

Is it any wonder that the attendance is dropping in the NFL when you can only pay the head man, Roger Godell, $40 million a year and have as many as five commentators sitting around a table in their $500-plus suits as they blurt out that which you and I are looking at? Not to mention another two…

With regard to the letter to the editor from David French concerning illegal immigration, I would respectfully ask Mr. French to do more research before citing any more misinformation. According to the Cato Institute and other sources, “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration” (2017)…

With mid-terms behind us, the next Greenville election is for 2019 mayor and City Council. For six months following the 2017 election, I made no public statements and granted no interviews, preferring instead to observe actions of the new mayor and council.

Folk ask if I’ll run and perhaps…

Most of the mainstream media and the Democratic party leadership continually, and erroneously, declare President Trump as evil, racist and a hater of anything and everything the Democratic party stands for.

I suppose his economic policies that have benefited African Americans, Hispanics and others…

Henry Kissinger had much to say about our President Trump. “Donald Trump is a phenomenon that foreign countries haven’t seen before.” Yes, President Trump is much different from our previous president that was willing to bow to other world leaders.

Trump’s presence was…
