I read with interest as well as disgust a letter captioned "stand up against the border wall" by a person from South Ogden.

I could only suppose that he has not been paying very close attention to recent reports that illegals from the south are murdering U.S. citizens daily and getting away with it because crazy Gov. Jerry Brown declares sanctuary.

For his info, it costs tax payers approximately $70,000 per illegal per year to keep them.

I'm sorry, but my tax dollars could be put to better use elsewhere (like the wall). There is an old saying that "you have to work harder and longer because millions of people on welfare depend on you."

I do concede that there are truly needy "U.S. Citizens" that count on those programs, but to give our resources away to those who are not here legally is absurd at best.

Ask Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Barack Obama and all the Hollywood elitists why they have walls around their estates.

Big double standards here.

Those left snollygosters are proof that they hate President Trump more than they love America or its citizens.

Ask yourself, sir, why is it you need a photo ID passport to travel to other countries?

There is a right way to be legally here. Most choose to ignore that pathway. So Mr. South Ogden, how about you pay my share of those dollars so I can keep my income to do things for me and my family?

To abolish the wall is doltish at best. By the way, I'm still waiting on the Hollywood exodus to begin.
