Stop rationalizing crime and enforce the immigration laws [Letter]

February 05, 2014

A cliché used to excuse those who break the immigration laws is that violators simply want "to make a better life for themselves." But this argument is the same argument that applies to all crime.

Thieves don't have enough money so they steal to make a better life for themselves.

Should we stop enforcing all our criminal statutes simply because the criminals want to make a better life for themselves? We should stop trying to rationalize criminal behavior and start enforcing our immigration laws.

Mark Campbell, Millersville
