Letter: immigration laws do not promote legal residency
"Present immigration laws do not promote legal residency. Given a choice, would people choose to be here 'illegally'? Would they choose to enter the country in a way that could result in death (the individuals that died in the back of an abandoned semi last year) or imprisonment?"
"It is my hope that those of us descended from immigrants will encourage legislators to pass laws allowing hard-working immigrants with no terrorist ties to reside here legally as they continue to contribute to our great nation."
