Is this letter writer ("Let dropouts drop out -- it'll save money," March 12) trying to be funny? Allow our children to drop out of school? Ridiculous! If they drop out, put them in the military and see that they finish their education while training to defend our country.
I agree with her on the border. Close it. We could stop illegal immigrants from coming here if we would cut off all the services they need to live once they get here and to get any service they must show proof that they have the right to be here. These services include housing, jobs, medical care, school, etc. We Americans occasionally have to show our birth certificate when applying for certain things. Why not immigrants?
Those who are here legally and are going to stay here should be required to learn English.
