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.
