With reference to Ben Lee's letter published on Feb. 27, he makes good points with one exception.
True, some of our ancestors came from other countries, but it was done legally.
I myself came from the United Kingdom in 1946 and it took five years of paperwork before I was granted U.S. citizenship.
So, the objection is to "illegal immigrants."
The keyword being "illegal." To answer your question, Ben, as to "what would I do if I were in their shoes?" I would venture to say, you would not have done the illegal thing in the first place.
