Letter to the Editor – June 14, 2013

(Continued)

During The Great Depression, president Hoover ordered the deportation of all illegal aliens to make jobs available to American citizens who desperately needed work. President Truman deported more than 2 million illegal aliens after World War II to create jobs for returning veterans. In 1954, president Eisenhower deported 13 million to make jobs available to WWII and Korean War veterans. It took two years but they were deported. In case you think that I’m making this up, crank up your search engine and type “operation wetback” in your search box.

Theodore Roosevelt said this in 1907, and it was true then and is true in 2013: “Any man who says that he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, and room for but one sole loyalty, and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

Just a side thought. The big oil companies just don’t pay enough tax. From 2007 to 2012 Exxon paid $146 billion, Chevron paid $85 billion and ConocoPhillips paid $58 billion. Compare that to Solyndra that sucked up $535 million in taxpayer money plus many other green projects.

Richard Feuilly, Weatherford
