ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Americans need to know what is happening at our southern border: Border patrol agents are being used as baby sitters of illegal-alien children flooding into the country (“Border Patrol changing diapers, heating baby formula for surge of children,” Web, June 13).

The news media should be able to see what is actually going on here. President Obama is projecting about $2 billion for illegals coming into America. People who voted for him: Is this the “hope and change” of America you wanted? Mr. Obama says that these illegal-alien children are the future of our nation, but how many years is it going to take before they are working adults able to contribute to America’s tax base?

What does the president think about legal citizens who are out of work and would like to work instead of being on food stamps? The pictures I have seen of assistance lines look like photos of another country, not America. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost his election because he and other politicians are not listening to the people they represent.

Border patrol agents need to go back to watching our borders — or better yet, have the National Guard do it. We simply cannot have open borders.
