Letter: Brush up on 14th Amendment

Mr. Garcia, from your letter (Feb. 2) it sounds as though you are a veteran. If that is correct, then I want to thank you for your service to our country. Now on to my response to your letter regarding the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

No, Mr. Garcia, the 14th Amendment is not there for "all of us." Adopted July 9, 1868, the 14th Amendment was one of the reconstruction amendments which provides a broad definition of citizenship that overruled the decision in Dred Scott vs. Sandford, which held that blacks could not be citizens of the United States.

We are way beyond 1868, and the 14th Amendment should be repealed. Criminal aliens are sucking the life out of our cities to the tune of billions of dollars and We the People are tired of it. We're tired of our hard earned taxes going to pay for their hospitalizations and educations, tired of the crimes being committed by these criminal aliens and tired of people threatening us with all of their "benevolent political organizations" that have been trampling the Constitution for years. Oh yes, and we're tired of the same old throwing out of the "discrimination card", but it is expected and you didn't disappoint.

It's not the citizens of Arizona who need to be better informed, Mr. Garcia. I suggest you go and study the Constitution and listen less to your benevolent political organizations.
