Oregon needs to take care of its own residents first

Statesman Journal

A sanctuary is a place of refuge. It is not a place for criminals or illegal people. If you come into my house without my permission, you are here illegally. That means you are a trespasser and trespassing is illegal.

Do not sneak into my domain and expect me to help you. Lady Liberty says: "Give me your sick, your elderly, your infirm." She does not say: "Sneak into my country and i will help you." I have nothing against immigrants per say. We are all immigrants to an extent as this country was formed by immigrants. It is the trespassers  I have a problem with. How do we know they are not rapists, murderers, gang leaders or members?

When i was driving semis for this country, I couldn't go from state to state without going through a port of entry. It should be the same for people wanting to come here from other countries. Our border has been open for too long. It doesn't need to be closed, it just needs to be managed better and more efficiently.

President Trump has done the one thing that should have been done years ago. As much as people do not like it or , he has taken politics out of the equation and is using common sense. I don't like Trump, didn't vote for him. But I do understand what he is trying to do.

Oregon needs to do take care of its own. Quit hiding illegal trespassers.
