LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Allowing illegals in will cost us all

- - Friday, July 18, 2014

It is crystal clear that President Obama does not believe in American exceptionalism, sovereignty or territorial integrity. The invasion of America by illegal aliens is not just a current crisis; the effects will be with Americans for years.

Mr. Obama has no intention of deporting those who have violated our sovereignty and territorial integrity. These individuals will cost American citizens billions, if not trillions, of dollars over the years — for education, health care, entitlements and incarceration. Further, what diseases are being brought in by these unscreened illegals? The administration is trying to move these people out of the detention centers as quickly as possible. Thorough health inspections cannot be completed.

The president and his cohorts, including Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, want the United States to become an open economic zone anyone may enter. This will lead to national bankruptcy and possible medical epidemics. Maybe that's how Mr. Obama plans to cut America down to size.
