All of the People [pictures] that appear in the New York Times edition on Friday, July 4, 2014 arrived in and became Citizens of America, including Andrew Carnegie; and this was all well and good. Let's hold a talk and discussion about the flood of Illegals entering America.

My Grandfather and Grandmother (Potato Famine) were immigrants from Ireland, they entered America legally through the Port of Philadelphia, Penna; and became citizen. My wife's parents entered through New York Cities, Ellis Island legally, they and my wife became citizens in Philadelphia. They were refugees from the German Labor (Concentration) Camps after the Second World War.  

There are no Wars in Central America that is causing this flood of human beings entering America.

Let's talk and discuss the root cause about these Central America people and why they are entering America.

America welcomes the immigrant as the Carnegi Foundation so proudly states, but these illegals are causing the breakdown of the fabric in our flag and it's Citizens, be they immigrants already here or generations old. If they want to come to America, do it the right way, like Andrew and Andrew's parents did

Sincerely yours,
James E. Colby
