I applaud Mr. McAnulty for submitting a common sense letter to the A-D regarding the debate between legal versus illegal immigration in our country (Re: Illegal immigration is simply illegal, April 14). 

It was refreshing to hear someone speak without theatrics or half truths about this issue. It’s such a terrible injustice to all the immigrants who followed the laws of our country for this to continue. 

We have so many issues facing us today regarding legal citizens of this country (homelessness, poverty, hunger and drug abuse to name a few) and I would rather my tax dollars be spent to support legal citizens first. 

It matters not a bit to me what color you are or where you came from, but you should be here legally and follow the laws of our country.
