Letter: U.S. citizens deserve better treatment from their own government

Tell your reps. to enforce laws

I’m tired of being treated as a third-class citizen by the government.

For example, to fly commercially, I must prove who I am with authorized photo identification and be subject to searches, even after proving I’m a law-abiding U.S. citizen. Yet illegal immigrants with a piece of paper and their word can board a commercial airline. And Homeland Security is implying I am more dangerous than an unknown person, with no history, who is here illegally. Either treat us all equally and fairly, or give law-abiding U.S. citizens the same or better privileges.

I urge you to write to your congressmen and senators. Tell them to enforce the laws equally for all people in the U.S. These double standards must stop!
