This is in response to letters to the editor involving Somalis and other immigrants.

They chose to come to the United States, to adapt, find a job and be productive.

What happened to the days of proving immigrants could support themselves? That there was a job or sponsor waiting?

Immigrants should not become a burden on the welfare system. This country does not need any more welfare cases.

Furthermore, this country supposedly has a separation of church and state, so why is it that Muslim students are allowed a special prayer room at Lewiston High School? Let them worship as the rest of us do – at home or a place of worship.

I believe this country needs to seal the borders, deport those here illegally, and make English the national language.

No more free rides on the working man’s back.
