Participants of the "Tour of the Faithful" — including Bishop Wester — are reportedly "tired of the hateful speech of politicians and candidates scapegoating immigrants for political gain" (Sept. 11).

Yeah? Well how about we Americans who are tired of you pandering to illegal aliens/identity thieves in order to boost Sunday collections.

With premeditation, calculation and a pure disdain for U.S. law and sovereignty, foreign nationals are illegally invading and stealing from our country. If they are caught and deported back to their own country, their "anchor babies" are perfectly free to accompany them.

To those aspiring immigrants who truly desire to become Americans and who are willing to respect the Rule of Law, welcome to the United States.
