LETTER: Misplaced comparison on U.S. immigration policy

Raymond Flory follows in footsteps of those on the left who fudge facts when comparing the United States’ current handling of immigrants to those of the past and the “dangers” they face if turned away (Saturday letter to the editor).

There is zero evidence that Honduras, El Salvador or Guatemala have forced any of their citizens to wear arm bands identifying them as “undesirables.” Nor have any of these countries clandestinely set up concentration camps to which those “undesirables” are transported to become either slave labor or put to death in gas chambers. That triumvirate does not have a policy of “Final Solution.”

The United States has an absolute right to admit or deny admission to any foreigner — period. That right imposes a duty upon the federal government to protect American citizens by deporting illegals who disregard the country’s immigration statutes.

LETTER: When did politics turn into a giant temper tantrum?

I see a lot of people on both sides with “temper tantrums.” How are we to teach our children if they see adults with angry words and demonstrations in the streets?

LETTER: Donald Trump isn’t great …

… but I am seriously considering voting for him next year, if only to prevent some Democratic socialist from being elected.

LETTER: On Baltimore, President Donald Trump and rats

Enough already about the rats. Michael Ramirez, in his Aug. 5 political cartoon, used that topic to get in a swipe against Baltimore and the residents of that large and historic city.

LETTER: Regulating bullets might slow down mass shooters

Instead of taking away guns, let’s regulate the bullets. If you own a gun, handgun or rifle, you can buy only enough bullets for the capacity of the gun.

LETTER: How would huge taxes affect Powerball players?

Most Powerball players hope to win big dollars, probably enough money to never work again. Under Sanders’ or de Blasio’s tax plans, only government would live the dream.
