  • Dear Editor,
    I was thinking about the 14 million illegals in this country waiting for President Obama to give them a pathway to citizenship.
    It makes me think of the number of U.S. citizens who have been killed or wounded while serving this country through our military. Millions of Americans have fought and died to preserve liberty and justice for all who have pledge allegiance to our flag.
    Now we are asked to welcome with open arms people who have broken our immigration laws and sneaked across our borders. I don’t consider picking a few cabbages sufficient service to earn citizenship in this country. Therefore, I have a plan for the President that would simply make the pathway to U.S. citizenship go through the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps. These people should be required to serve honorably in our military for a period of four years. The first task of the military would be to teach them to speak English.
