I have to strongly disagree with HIAS (“Close to the border,” Editor’s Column, June 24) and its proposals for immigration reform.
There are terrorists who want to kill us and have a religious belief that they will go to heaven if they do. A significant number of illegal immigrants now coming across the border are from countries that have many religious terrorists.
How many Israelis died from suicide murders before Israel closed its borders? How many Americans must be vaporized before we close our borders?
America is the most charitable country on Earth; it will humanely take care of the illegal immigrants who are already here.
