Letter: Follow the law regarding immigration

I, like many others, are frustrated by the actions of our government’s inability to address the immigration problem that is humane and abides by the established immigration law.

The problem is not that we don’t have a big heart It’s that the federal government and the immigration process are terribly broken. Many border patrol agents have resigned or taken early retirement due to the government’s view it is better for children, pregnant women and criminals to walk across the border without due process than to apply appropriately with immigration law.

It may be that the influx of immigration is to stem the tide of people fleeing governmental restraint or collapse. However, as a country is governed best when laws are instituted and implemented, at the very least, it would behoove our nation for the sake of security and common sense to follow the law regarding immigration and not abandon the premise of that citizenship in our nation is a privilege.
