Don’t glorify illegal immigration


You have a column in the Tribune called “Onions and Orchids.” Why haven’t you given an onion to Congressman Tim Ryan? He took an oath of office to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the United States. Should he be glorifying an illegal immigrant? Should he be opposing the president of the United States?

This should be a political issue. May we all break our laws as these illegal immigrants do? Our men and women in blue are losing their lives defending our laws. Why then, is this congressman defending and dignifying a man who is proud to escape the laws of the U.S.? How many thousands more illegally here feel they too can disregard our laws?

Would we be able to do that in their countries with no punishment? How long would we get away with that in any of their countries?

You know the answer to that! Give Tim Ryan an onion.
