This week, the "Your Turn" mailbox was full of reaction to Collierville's state representative, Curry Todd and his comment about illegal immigrants. Todd likened them to rats. Reaction was strong from people who supported Todd and those who were offended by him. We chose a letter from Pamela Walton.
In Walton's words:
Bad choice of words, but the truth behind his poor choice of words is nevertheless true. He was not talking about those immigrants who come here legally, just those who come here illegally to have children so that they themselves can have a better chance of staying. These illegals are taking advantage of the loophole in our Constitution and there is no sugar coating this. I don't know what the answer is, but I feel the frustration of Curry Todd and I think his poorly chosen words were also born of frustration!
That's Pamela Walton's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-465-1210.
