Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
The government controls the lives of everyone living under its jurisdiction, so everyone in the community should have a voice in electing the government, right?
Hey, what’s the problem? Everyone residing in the community is affected by local government, we all have “skin in the game.” Why should the accident of birthplace give citizens special privileges not afforded to resident aliens, border jumpers, students who overstayed their visas and even tourists?
However you got here, you ARE here, so you should have a say in the rules you’re living under. Anything less would be un-American.
Take the Democrat approac to borders and the rights and privileges of citizenship to its logidal extreme and they really shouldn’t be barbering about Riussian “interference” in our elections, since the Russians have exactly the same rights as illegal Salvadorans have to steer our democracy.
