Illegal immigrants deserve deportation [Letter]

Illegal ImmigrantsImmigrationBarack Obama

I'm sorry. I might make some people angry, but I agree with the law ("Immigration program aimed at criminals deports many with no record," Feb. 8). And if the people weren't illegal, their families wouldn't have to miss them.

There are thousands of families here in the United States going through legal channels to get their foreign spouses and relatives here. We are doing what we are told and because of the illegals, we are having to wait even longer periods for approval.

The resources for our cases has been shifted to President Barack Obama's illegal immigrant project. The immigrants do it wrong and go ahead of the ones doing it right. Maybe they should all come here illegally. Then they would be able to get in on the project and stay.

I believe all families should be together, but can we do it fairly?

R. Arakan, Baltimore
