Human Costs

The Daily Bulletin today carried a letter by Claremont resident Carolyn Gonzalez, who criticized the federal government for failing to enforce immigration laws. Gonzalez argues that the U.S. is in danger of losing its identity by making too many accomodations to illegal aliens. She writes:

And Gonzalez doesn't even touch on the issue of illegals taking away jobs from legal citizens. The Onion offers a examination of that growing problem:
