Enforcing immigration laws is necessary
Letter to the editor

Editor: News stories from all over the nation are now focused on the fact that President Trump’s immigration enforcement is causing problems for illegal victims of borders.

It is music to the ears of the pro-enforcement American majority to know that "undocumented workers" are "selling off their cars and homes and preparing to return to their native countries" as the Atlanta newspaper has recently reported.

After eight years of the Obama administration’s fake news of "record deportations," we see real distress in the illegal alien community. Which is exactly the purpose of President Trump’s enforcement policy.

The ridiculous straw man argument that "it is impossible to deport 11 to 20 million illegals" is now meeting reality.

Fear of the law results in many illegals migrating out of the U.S. on their own.

When this happens in concert with a reduction in legal immigration and an America First switch to highly skilled immigrants, lower immigration numbers,secure borders and a system in place that monitors the on-time departure of temporary visa holders, we will see a long over-due return to immigration sanity. According to DHS, Georgia has more illegal aliens than Arizona.

After being appointed by President Clinton to study and recommend remedies for the illegal immigration crisis in the mid ’90s, the late U.S. Rep. Barbara Jordan told Congress "unless this country does a better job in curbing illegal immigration, we risk irreparably undermining our commitment to legal immigration."

Our Georgia-based and nationally noted, pro-enforcement immigration watchdog group, the Dustin Inman Society, was formed in 2005 and named for a forever-16-year-old Woodstock youth who was killed by an illegal alien in 2000.

We have been advancing the "Jordan Doctrine" from here for nearly 15 years and happily note that Donald Trump and the liberal media are validating our work.

Jordan, an African-American Democrat also told congress that "deportation is crucial."

We agree and we urge state legislators to heed the president’s courage and to have the same tenacity on illegal immigration. Because enforcement works.
