Letter to the Editor: Let's Ask El Paso What They Think

Arizona's controversial Senate Bill 1070 has people up in arms all around the country. The media reports stories of those who are against the bill and some that are for the bill itself or one similar to it. We often hear about polls that are taken in Arizona and other places around the country. Polls that tell us what other people feel about immigration. Except for those in Arizona, they are people that live hundreds of miles away from the border. What we don’t see is a poll that reflects the opinion of El Pasoans. We deserve to know where we as El Pasoans stand on this very polarized issue. We live a few yards away from the world’s deadliest city yet nobody has taken a poll asking us what we think about immigration or about secure borders. I would like to see an actual poll conducted of the people of El Paso. A poll that will help us better understand where we all stand on this issue.

    we do live right next door to the worlds most deadliest city but most el paso residents and the leadership including mayor cook and rep shapley are content in live in wonderland with alice and keep their heads in the crap of denial until the violence crosses the border in spades then IT WILL BE TO LATE AND IT WILL BE THEIR FAULT and then the real violence will happen. from JOHN OMAR AGUIRRE JR

  2. I bet that our city council and county commissioners are all wrong when it comes to the citizen's wishes for legal immigration enforcement and border security. Such arrogance. Let's throw the bums out.
