Leave God out of corruption

Dear Editor:So, illegal people are created by God? That’s a new one! I have news for Mr. Roger Marolt.Illegal aliens are crated by corrupt governments like Mexico’s government and the U.S. government. Please, leave God out of corruption! Marolt writes, “There is something unsettling about the current movement to curb illegal immigration into the United States. A buried nuance lies beneath the discussion that leaves me tight in heart and contradictory in mind. There appear to be broad solutions proposed to solve vaguely defined problems narrowly associated with Mexicans.”I’m not a Mexican, but I’m of Hispanic descent. I came to the U.S. as a legal immigrant, I’m a naturalized U.S. citizen, and I think illegal immigration is a slap in the face to law-abiding citizens of Hispanic descent and those who have come to this country according to the law.I live in California, a state that’s devastated by illegal immigration. According to a recent statement by state Sen. Tom McClintock, it costs California $10 billion a year to educate, medicate and incarcerate illegal aliens. I’m on a fixed income, and I could lose my home to higher property taxes to maintain the illegal alien population.I don’t give a hoot what Marolt says. Illegal aliens are tax consumers. Illegal aliens provide low-wage, taxpayer-subsidized labor for greedy merchants. Anybody who defends illegal immigration is profiting from it, one way or another.Haydee PaviaLaguna Woods, Calif.
