In the Nov. 4 Parade magazine, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush wrote about changing our immigrations laws. Why? They are fine, just as they are.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill, wants to change our immigration laws as well.

Go to China or India. First change their immigration laws.

Better yet, try to get a job in Canada. They investigate you thoroughly! If you have any record of alcoholism or drug use, you’d be lucky just to look at the grass across the border.

Go to Mexico. First change their immigration laws. Buy your retirement home or vacation hideaway in Mexico. You will not wholly own them. The Mexican government will own them.

I've worked with immigrants who have sired, raised and educated their children here in the USA, then bitterly complain about our government and how it works and does business. Go home! First fix your government.

Go back to where you come from if you don't like our laws and life here. We are not holding you hostage.
