What's fair is fair

Regarding "Let's be a more Christian state" (The Signal, Feb. 24):

Unfortunately, Craig, your "empathy" seems to mean simply ignoring our laws regarding border security, and your mawkish view of illegal immigrants completely ignores the fact that they're one of the main causative agents of the collapse of our infrastructure (schools, hospitals, the state budget, etc.), as well as being a major factor in crime (more than a third of prisoners are illegal immigrants), all while they send an estimated $50 billion per year of untaxed cash out of the state in "remittance" to their home countries.

I'll tell you what. Most illegal immigrants enter through our southern border. What's fair is fair, right?

So why don't we institute the exact same procedures that Mexico follows regarding its own illegal immigrants: they're rounded up and imprisoned, all their possessions are confiscated and after their jail term is finished, they're deported to their country of origin.

You good with that?
