An Open Letter
September 24, 2010
Dear Stephen Colbert,
In preparing this open letter to you, I am literally fighting back the tears! It truly breaks my heart that so many people in positions of power and authority continue to make light of illegal immigration!
Are you aware of, and/or concerned with the fact, that American citizens and legal immigrants are murdered everyday by illegal aliens? Have you ever spent one second thinking about that?
In speaking to Congress today, do you think you would have prepared anything different if one of your love ones was murdered by an illegal alien? You think you would make fun of this illegal alien invasion if you lost a loved one to this crime?
I guess the point I feel is being ignored is that if not for the illegal immigrants in this country that have committed these crimes, their victims would still be alive. If our state and federal governments were implementing laws that are already on our books, then these people might still be alive. The victims aren't dead because an illegal shot them, it was because they were allowed to cross our borders and stay in our country without fear of negative consequences. They are breaking a law just by being here and some hail them as heroes. Problem is, we don't know WHO is coming across our borders and for what reasons. Would you be so dismissive if it were your child laying lifeless in the street for 'crossing an imaginary line'? I guess the answer is easy for me, maybe not so much for some others.

Crime is crime- doesn't matter who the perp happens to be. Everyone has the power to change the channel, if they are offended by the content displayed.
