Letter to the Editor

If protesters don't like it here, go home

To the editor:

I am outraged at all the uproar the immigrants are causing. They are threatening to hurt our economy. This is called biting the hand that feeds you. How dare they take to the streets in protest when a good bit of them are here illegally, breaking our laws? I don't believe the politicians'' propaganda that they do jobs Americans won't do. This is all to benefit big business so they can make bigger profits. Ask any of our people with a family to feed and no work because these immigrants are flooding into this country by the millions. Have we forgotten what happened to southern Florida when the Cuban immigrants moved in? It is so crime-ridden I'll never go back there on vacation. If we don't stop this mass inflow, we will soon be the minority in our own country. I have one sentence for protesters: If you don't like it here, go home.
