Adhere To Immigration Laws
By Donald A. Moskowitz


July 26, 2010

The federal government, working with the border states, should provide the personnel and resources to secure our borders.

Over the years tens of millions of immigrants from Europe and other continents entered the U.S legally through Ellis Island and other locations. They learned English, studied U.S. history, and took a citizenship examination to qualify to become citizens.

Currently we have approximately 11 million illegal immigrants in this country who do not qualify for citizenship. They committed an illegal act when entering this country. We are a country of laws, and the 11 million illegal immigrants broke our laws, and should be deported over an extended period of time to their native countries.

These potential immigrants can then go through the established application process, become proficient in English, and obtain knowledge of U.S. history and our government, and then qualify for citizenship.

By following our current immigration laws the immigrants will find it easier to be assimilated, and our country will be stronger.
