Letter: Close the US southern border

Letter to the editor

Our southern border is seeing the largest ever invasion of illegal immigration due to the open border policy of President Joe Biden and the Democrats. Over one million have come since the start of 2021.

In May 2021, there has been a seven-fold increase of those apprehended vs. May 2020 when Trump had secured the border. This invasion is bringing unwanted drugs, criminals and who knows how many terrorists, as the influx is from more than 100 different countries.

In addition to the usual problems this creates, it is going on during a pandemic and is a super spreader event for COVID. The illegal border crossings bring in people who are unmasked, untested and unvaccinated. People who cross the border illegally are now being flown to smaller airports in the middle of the night and can spread the virus all around the country. These middle of the night flights are an obvious attempt to hide what is happening from America.

America does not want illegal immigration. Tell me one way this is good for the USA. We must feed, house, and educate people who enter the country illegally at a huge expense, and they get better treatment than American citizens. As illegal immigrants vote Democratic, the only logical reason for this invasion is to try and make the USA a one-party system. America is tired of this attempted takeover by an invasion of illegal immigration. Close the border.
