Letter to the editor


Voice of the people
Believes we all want similar things
It may surprise many, but both conserva-
tives and liberals, Republicans and Demo-
crats, all want pretty much the same things.
The difference is in how to attain the desired
goals. Sometimes neither side has the right or
best answer, but a true compromise between
the opposing sides would work best.
For instance, take The Wall, please! All
that physical barrier will do is keep an honest
person honest, just like a lock on a door. Pun-
ishing employers who hire “undocumented
workers” would go a long way towards solving
the problem. Many illegal aliens here commit
deadly crimes, where legal, born-here Amer-
icans often pay with their lives. Take photo-
graphs, fingerprints, and DNA samples from
every illegal alien arrested. If such an alien is
deported and returns, it’s straight to prison.
Make our laws mean something.
We all want a “living wage” so people
