LETTER: Freudian slip

Updated September 8, 2019 - 10:38 pm

An article in Tuesday’s Review-Journal (“Utahans protest deportation of Mexican activist”) unintentionally and unwittingly demonstrates why many people are against immigration, especially the illegal variety.

An “activist” who is an illegal alien facing deportation says of the dangers if she is returned, “People back home think that a newly returning immigrant coming from the United States has a lot of money.” Note the use of the term “back home.” That’s the problem. A lot of current-day immigrants, both legal and illegal, think of their previous country as “back home.”

This country is deliberately courting trouble by allowing people in for the long term who feel someplace else is “home”.
