It’s time to address illegal immigrant issue
On Aug. 3, I drove to Russellville. I walked up and down Main Street and several side streets. I saw most of the business establishments were Hispanic.
What was most surprising was the majority of the store fronts used only Spanish, not English as a first language.
Some did have Spanish and English, but not many. I also encountered several people on the street not speaking English.
If an American flag had not been on display in front of a downtown bank, I would have thought I was in a foreign country.
Why are city, county and state officials not putting a stop to the illegal alien problem?
I picked on Russellville, but the counties to the north — Colbert and Lauderdale — have the same problem.
It’s just not as bad, but it’s going to happen unless we demand that all illegal aliens be picked up and sent back home.
I believe we should be educating American children, not illegal alien children — we should be taking care of American children’s health, not illegal children.
I am guessing, but city, county or state officials will not tell you how much of the budget goes for illegals.
My guess is 25-30 percent.
If you are here legally I am all for you, just become an American and do not try to turn America into the third world country you came from.
