Allowing Them to Break Laws
In the editorial “No Discriminatory Driver’s Licenses” (March 1), you stated that you disagreed with the plan to issue special driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.
Webster’s dictionary definition of illegal is “prohibited by law; one who enters the country illegally.”
I am not taking up for these people, but when some people make and sell illegal alcohol or illegal drugs and are caught doing so, they will be arrested, charged, tried in court and punished for doing something illegal, which is prohibited by law.
My question is for anyone who can give me an answer. Why can people enter this country illegally, work and earn income using false identification that is prohibited by our laws, and when they are caught they still remain in this country?
They even go so far as to go to Raleigh to protest in front of TV cameras admitting that they are here illegally, demanding that our laws be changed to allow them to remain in this state instead of being deported.
Why are they not being arrested and deported for entering this country illegally instead of allowing them to remain here, receiving certain privileges such as driver’s licenses?
The people who are being discriminated against are those who are legally in this country, who do something illegal and are punished for it, while we allow illegal immigrants to break our laws and remain in this country.
