Letter: Bombing shows need for proper screening
With all the talk and news of needing to fix the “broken” immigration system in America, recent events in Boston bring to reality the grave importance of properly screening those wishing U.S. citizenship. If two boys – ethnic Chechens from far-off Russia – brought here as youngsters and educated here and speaking our language can cause so much trouble, how much more damage can be done by 11 million-plus undocumented unlawfully here non-English-speaking unassimilated illegal aliens?
I call on all those would-be citizens to report to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices wherever they reside in the United States and immediately surrender themselves for processing. If you want respect from America, do the right thing and show some respect to your wannabe future homeland. Otherwise, why should we in America think your intentions for being here are honorable? You people have already started off on the wrong foot. We demand background checks on all citizenship applications.
