Illegal Workers Count Underestimated 

Pin It

Our leaders in America over the past 50 years have been very soft on our country’s civil laws by allowing what they say are 11 million to 12 million illegal immigrants from South American countries and Mexico into the United States.

I’m 75, travel all over, plus have lived in Arizona, Texas, Florida, Tennessee and now Utah. In these five states alone, there are more than 20 million folks speaking Spanish only.

Salt Lake City, open your eyes. In any/all of the rest of the United States, the real count is between 60 million to 100 million. As Americans, our government should protect us from foreign invasion, yet no one’s taking our government to task. Where are the lawyers on this one, on either side of the issue? It takes 15 years today for most folks to acquire U.S. citizenship. Why would anyone today even bother? Simply walk across our borders!

Sixty million to 100 million illegal immigrants is way too many.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
