Letter to the Editor: The ‘Planned’ Invasion of America

Today, we are witnessing the "planned" invasion of America at the southern border. Leading the charge are President Barack Obama, Mexico, and Central and South American countries. This is a war against our nation.

Our overwhelmed Border Patrol agents cannot defend our borders. The president has forced them and soldiers on military bases to become babysitters while drug dealers, gang members and possibly terrorists have crossed into the U.S.

Minors under 21, who are simply pawns, most with highly contagious diseases, are being transported through Mexico, with that country's consent, and the numbers are escalating every day.

Yet the commander in chief has done nothing to protect our borders, which is his duty. Instead, he falsely calls the loss of our border a humanitarian problem, so Americans who stand up for their border look cruel. However, in real life, this unstopped massive invasion will infect our population, harm our own children, bankrupt our country, destroy health care, and deplete our water and food supplies.

America, will we as a nation be easily conned and remain gutless, or will we stand up? To protect our nation, we must NOW close our borders, put the army in charge and consider removing the president.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
