We must secure our southern border

DEAR EDITOR:

Drug cartels, gang MS-13, rapists, sex traffickers, drug smugglers and Democrats all oppose a border wall. Quite a fine group, I’d say. Since 9/11, more than 10,000 American citizens have been killed by illegals. Didn’t their lives matter? They all still should be alive. In his 1995 State of the Union address, President Bill Clinton demanded that our southern border be secured and that “illegal aliens,” as he referred to them, be deported. A standing ovation followed.

Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, the Obamas, the Clintons and even U.S Rep. Tim Ryan live behind walls and gates. Why is that? Isn’t it for their safety, security and protection? Immigration laws are in place for a reason. What is wrong with insisting on the safety, security and protection of our entire country? Stop this insanity and nonsense, and build the wall.
