2017 Letters to the editor stock

This letter is to thank President Donald Trump for his rational immigration policies.

Thanks for protecting my family and friends and all decent people from the terrorists and criminals by ending the "lottery" system that gives these terrorists and criminals an equal chance as everyone else of gaining entry.

Thanks for protecting my family's finances by trying to end illegal immigration by people who want to exploit our system and reap the benefits but not accept the responsibilities of citizenship.

Maybe the people who call your policies "draconian" should pay their way to show their support. I'm already paying for plenty of people who already live here. My family were immigrants, but they came through the front door and accepted their responsibilities.

Having people accept their civic and financial responsibilities is not cruel or discriminatory. If it is, then I've been discriminated against and treated cruelly my whole life.

Jeff Ossanna, Schererville
