Letter to the editor: Immigration and executive orders

Immigration and executive orders

Received Sept. 14

The president issues executive orders to enforce existing law. The President cannot create new law. The federal courts will take over 20 years (and much money) to deport 11 million illegal aliens. Congress should first create a guest worker program like the Bracero Program which was repealed in 1964 and establish 50 offices along the border. Then only the drug gangs and coyotes will be sneaking across. The Border Patrol could easily catch them, and we would need only a few new fences.

Next, open 200 offices across the country to accept applications for permanent worker visas and visas for their families. Then it would be easy to arrest drug gang members, because they would not apply and have no visas.
