U.S. must not grant amnesty

I feel it necessary to comment on two letters in the May 8 edition.

First, the one by James Horsley hit the nail right on the head, and I couldn’t agree more with his description of the who and why we have the illegal immigration problem. What can be done to correct this? I am sure there are a lot of opinions. I find no fault with what Arizona has done and am sure it wasn’t done to spite or harass anyone.

Next, the letter by Jeannie Camarillo and Amy Phillips. Now I cannot come close to understanding where they are coming from. Since when is it harassment or punishment to determine who is living in our country illegally? Those who are doing so have no rights in this country and as long as they are not physically harmed, have very little to complain about.

The American tax-paying citizens are becoming very fed up with this illegal immigration issue and rightfully fear that our government will do some very stupid and irreversible thing like amnesty to satisfy those mentioned in Horsley’s opinion.
