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.

I thank The Reflector for Tom Campbell's piece in the July 7 edition, "Civic Clubs Offer Path to Community Pride."

Indeed they do. And I can speak from experience since I joined Kiwanis Club of Greenville eight years ago and have felt rewarded many fold. A woman I was courting and later married was…

I would like to thank you for the July 13th editorial, “Congress unwilling to address federal spending.” It accurately points out the dangerous fiscal path down which our country is headed.

As the editorial notes, within 10 years the federal government will annually spend more on…

Brett Kavanaugh is the wrong choice to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. If he is confirmed to the Supreme Court, everything that we hold dear as a nation will be at stake.

From a protecting a woman’s right to choose to dismantling the Affordable Care Act, Kavanaugh could…

The recent article about State Treasurer Dale Folwell and the ECU Physicians-Vidant Health merger perplexes me.

I’m not a health care professional, business executive or attorney— just a North Carolina taxpayer. So maybe I’m dense or ill informed. But why did the article say…

A president under investigation for colluding with a foreign power (and known enemy of the United States) should not be allowed to appoint Supreme Court justices.

When that president picks a nominee who has stated that sitting president should not be subject to indictment nor subjected to civil…

From time to time the idea of a pedestrian bridge across the Tar River to River Park North is mentioned. For example, a Reflector article in 2016 estimated the price of such a bridge at $7 million-$20 million dollars! That price tag scares many citizens off. That's a shame because River Park North…

There is a lot of misinformation regarding single-payer health plans, and Albert Hunt’s column in the Sunday Daily Reflector did nothing to clear the air. His remarks regarding the health care system were both inaccurate and off the mark. Hunt referred to the proposed single-payer system as…

Amid the headlines of migrant children being separated from their parents and guardians, there is the stark reality of human beings wrenched from each other. When it is your neighbor, co-worker, or fellow church member, then it becomes “up close and personal.” Maybe that’s…

I just saw Walter B. Jones’ Facebook post congratulating himself for participating in Kinston's naturalization ceremony. He was very quick to stress how proud he was of people going "through the legal process" of becoming a citizen.

So my question for him, and for my other representatives:…
