To the Editor:

Can anyone figure out why we should house, feed and clothe children who are here illegally, when we can’t do the same for our own people?

If their parents can give a “mule” thousands of dollars to bring them to the United States, why don’t they use the money to move the family to a different, safer area in their own country?

Check with your local schools and see how many students are homeless.

How many of our veterans are living on the streets because they can’t find a job and have no income?

How many people are working and are homeless, because they don’t make enough money to pay the first and last months rent, the utility deposits, and the monthly payments, plus food, clothes and now school supplies?

Have we ever had shelter for the homeless in bad weather? Oh yes, for a few days or hours when it’s the worst.

We’ve heard talk about it over the years, but only talk.

Let’s take care of our own first, please.

    I say that for all the people that think it is OK for us to let these illegal immigrants in should be made to sign up and then the cost of the illegals should be charged to them. They should pay for their housing, food, clothing and education. Come on people, you want them, you pay for them.

    Because the American people have been lied to---Any kids were just used as a Decoy to get the ones who were really wanted inside the country-
    The Adult men and women.

    But its times such as this, that others are shown the loyalty or lack of, by those who call themselves Americans and even at times will add Loyal onto the word.

    V.K. Krieger you took the common sense words out of my mouth. I thought they paid 5000 for the "coyotes" to bring them. Yes take care of our own first.
