Legal vs. illegal
Mr. deBona's recent letter failed to mention (Manchester Journal, Feb. 22) the most important in American history. The early immigrants certainly were critically needed and supported strongly in a country that needed them. However, millions of them - Germans, British, Italian - all went through Ellis Island to become legalized and become Americans.
Now we have a government that is sitting on its hands as millions of illegal immigrants have invaded our country. Our leaders have turned a blind eye to the devastating impact that illegal immigration is having on our country.
American is certainly being transformed. God help us.
