WT - Immigration is about laws, not compassion

Immigration is about laws, not compassion
Mona Charen's opinion piece "Immigration compassion" by was very troubling (Commentary, Wednesday). Illegal immigration should have nothing to do with compassion, but should be about honoring the rule of law. Mrs. Charen states that she feels well disposed toward those who wish to become Americans, especially Catholics from Latin America.
Our forefathers must be turning over in their graves from that remark. In reality, our founding fathers welcomed all legal immigrants equally. Most of the immigrants who came to our nation were people who desired to assimilate, and who had skills so as not to be a drain on our society.
Today, most Americans feel that open border advocates, a government with a low regard for its workers and individuals with compassion for criminals don't make for a country with a promising future.
