Letters on immigration, Social Security are on track

To The Herald-Whig:

I certainly agree with the July 10 letter to the editor stating "Liberals should Ďadopt' illegal immigrants." I don't appreciate my dollars going to support someone who has never worked. I have worked hard for my money. If these liberals want the immigrants, then they should support them with their money.

I agree with the letter that was published July 11, stating "Many support Trump's action to control illegal immigration." President Trump was elected partially on wanting to gain control of illegal immigration. People, stand up and support him.

I also agree with letter on Aug. 31, stating "Many Americans are working for country's social programs." I worked and paid into Social Security for many, many years. My employer also paid into my benefits. This is not an entitlement.

Democrats need to go back and check into what Social Security really is about. It's not for them to take out of the funds and put into something they want.

I am not a Democrat or Republican but vote for the person. After hearing what the Democrats are doing and want to do, I don't intend to vote for any of them. They seem to think Barack Obama is still our president.

If the Democrats want these illegal immigrants in our country, let them pay for all their expenses. Let them be responsible for those who want to bomb and kill our people.
