To the editor:
When the first settlers came to this land, they came as colonists.
Colonists settle in a new land and establish their own culture, their own language, their own beliefs and their own way of life.
These first settlers were not immigrants. Immigrants come to a country to be absorbed into the culture and tradition of the population of that country.
Our country is slowly but surely being "colonized" by the massive influx of legal and illegal foreigners streaming across our border on a daily basis.
They came to establish their own culture, their own language, their own beliefs and their own way of life.
We see evidence of this everywhere. Refusal to speak English, demanding that printed material contain their language, living and acting just like they did in the their home country, etc.
They came here because their way of life in their homeland was a failure.
What makes them believe that their way of life will succeed here?
We must stop this colonizing of our country by foreigners no matter who they are.
Those who refuse to acknowledge the deterioration of this once great country are blind and just will not see.
To help the less fortunate is kind and noble, to do so at your own demise is insanity.
