Immigrants should follow the law
Wednesday, July 11, 2018
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.
