WAVE 3 Editorial - June 20, 2013: Feedback

Our "Dream Revisited" editorial this week regarding the immigration bill pending in Congress brought several responses.

Chris Zimmerer emailed: "What about those of us that are trying to find work and cannot. Just keep letting those illegals in and give them the right to vote for Democrats to keep the process going round and round!  Those of us who made this country great are definitely losing ground."

John Maupin wrote: "People who live in this country will always have complaints about others who want to come here to make a better life…we're all immigrants."

And Christina Fitzgerald commented: "This is the most generous Country in the world. We are the most generous people in the world. But how much can we be expected to give people who come to this country without following the rules of entry?  The minute they get here they apply and get free health care, free schooling, free Social Security benefits, food stamps, and welfare…My father came to this Country with his Mother and worked hard, fought in World War II, and got his citizenship while stationed in Europe. He loved this Country and always told us to work hard to get the great things this Country had to offer. Those things this Country had to offer, in his book, were not free. Working hard and attaining those things are what makes this Country GREAT!

We appreciate and encourage all of your feedback.
