Has our nation become perverted?

To the editor: Our great country was built by immigrants who brought with them skills, customs, and a work ethic. Things have changed terribly. Our business controlled government wants to degrade our population with lower entrance requirements and to allow illegal aliens to remain. The inscription on The Statue of Liberty supporting humanitarian intent has been perverted to mean: Send us your failures who allow social abuses in your countries, your cheap labor, your organized crime, send us those who refuse to learn our language, send us your parasites to feed and clothe, send us those who compete for jobs and weaken the American people, send us terrorists to train —- Oh for heaven’s sake —- send us anyone who can make money for those who are raping our economy.
