Now is the time to crack down on illegal workers
Re Land of little opportunity, Feb. 16: While further evidence that illegal immigrants cannot be allowed to stay in this country indefinitely is unnecessary, your article reiterates just this point. Immigrant Jamie Romero states that he should be sending them (his family) money to support them, an idea which is status quo for immigrant workers. This mentality further illustrates what happens to U.S. dollars paid to illegal immigrants. Not only are tax paying Americans undercut out of jobs in these trying economic times, but salaries paid to immigrants fly swiftly out of employers accounts and into foreign countries, instead of staying in America to circulate among struggling businesses. If ever there was a time to crack down on illegal immigration, let it be now.

Octuplets grandmother seeing dollar signs
Octo-grandmother Angela Suleman says she no longer resents her daughter for giving birth to eight more children. Angela filed for bankruptcy last year, and she is retired. I am not saying that she doesnt love her daughter or all her grandchildren, but could the reason that she saw the light be because of all the publicity? There would be some mighty big dollar signs in the not-so-distant future.

Bloomberg does not deserve my vote
Mayor Bloomberg is seeking a party, but he says that my vote and voice at the ballot box meant nothing when I voted for term limits. He doesnt deserve my vote on any political party that might choose him.
