letter to editor

Editor, Manteca Bulletin,

Sandra Ahrens letter, “Addressing Aquila’s issue with Democratic Socialism” is something that could be out of Comedy Central since she stated, “Democratic Socialism believe strongly in democracy, it does not believe the government should take control of” the “economy”, “healthcare”, “college education”.  Someone at the Democratic Headquarters forgot to get Sandra the script.  Even the current Democrats running for president have stated such and more.  As a matter of fact Sandra, the Democrats are now proud Socialist, which I can assume from your letter, you are not.  Therefore, I won’t bother with your nonsense any further.

Next we have Larry “Fake News” Baca who babbled his way through a quarter of a page in the paper again saying absolutely nothing relevant; but only his attempt to discredit the bible.  If you took away Larry’s babbling, what he had to say would be approximately twelve words.  I will sum it up for Larry how he would say it, “I don’t believe in the Bible and the Bible is not true.”  Even with that Larry, nobody cares that you don’t believe the Word of God; but one thing is clear.  The Bible says in Psalm 14:1 The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” Romans14:11 says, It is written “As surely as I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow.” Lastly Larry, it says in Matthew 12:36, But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in that day of judgment.  Therefore Larry, I will be praying for you.

The most interesting letter was from Maya Manoharan, “Guilty of mistreatment of families in detention centers”   I believe Maya’s letter was sincere; but I would caution  Maya to know that no one is forcing these people to come here illegally.  There is a legal process.  I would also like to point out to Maya that the “Fake News” media is running pictures that were taken during the Obama administration to attack Trump.  There are many reports of this and verified for Larry “Fake News” Baca.

However, what I would really like to show Maya is how those who enter Mexico illegally are treated.

According to Mexico’s immigration laws, every article of la controls illegal immigration into Mexican territory.  If you immigrate to Mexico, Article 32 states you must speak Spanish and must be a professional who is useful to Mexican society.  There are no bilingual programs in the school and no pressing 2 for English.  All business must be conducted in Spanish.  Article 34 states that foreigners must have necessary funds to support themselves and their dependents.  There are no welfare programs, food stamps, government housing or entitlements.  Article 87 states foreigners must be “physically and mentally healthy.”  Articles 73, 85, 86, 87 state foreigners must be on a national population registry, cooperating with federal, local, and municipal police.  Article 116 states foreigners using fake documents face a fine and imprisonment.  Immigrants must show birth certificate to show citizenship.  Articles 117-121 state foreigners who fail to obey laws will be fined, deported, and felons imprisoned.  No one is allowed to enter the country with a criminal record.  There is no due process of deportation.  There is no 14th Amendment.  Law enforcement officers are required to enforce Mexico’s immigration laws at all times.  Articles 123-126 make illegal immigration a felony.  Article 127 state any Mexican who marries a foreigner with the sole objective of helping the foreigner is subject to five years in prison.

Now Maya, no one forced any of those who came to America to come illegally.  While the Democrats are pushing for those to come to overwhelm the system and to create havoc so the conditions look bad or the media using photos of those in cages during the Obama administration in an attempt to make the Trump administration look bad, the fact is those in the detention centers are welcome to return home.

As a nation, we must enforce our laws, encourage legal immigration, and take care of our own here in America before we reach out to the rest of the world.
