Dear Editor:
In response to Nancy Taylor Shivers letter, let me restate the last sentence in my previous letter: "We need strict enforcement of our current immigration law and aggressive prosecution of employers who hire illegal aliens." Yes, I believe the support would be extremely strong for enforcement of both the immigration law and employer sanctions. I also believe that if aggressive enforcement of workplace violations had been in place since 1986, as it was supposed to, we would have far fewer illegals here. If we ever hope to stem the flood of people coming here for economic reasons then we have to remove the incentive, the jobs they are taking from not only US citizens but resident aliens who followed the rules and came legally. The devil is always in the details, that doesn't change the fact that something drastic has to be done in order to restore some order to the immigration fiasco. History has proven that another amnesty won't do that. And I still haven't seen anyone even try to argue that it will. All I have heard or read is that amnesty is the only thing we can do, it isn't. We just need people with enough gumption to do what is right, not what is politically correct.
