Dems’ amnesty would destroy U.S.

After watching President Trump’s State of the Union Address regarding legal and illegal immigration and the Democratic responses, I am perturbed. It is obvious the Democratic Party desires open borders, massive legal and illegal immigration without limits, and a complete amnesty for the millions of illegal immigrants, current and future, who have violated our laws and our national sovereignty. The Democratic Party lusts for the future votes of illegal aliens and cares not about the integrity of American citizenship.

As a military veteran with 26 years’ service, as a person who values my long line of ancestors predating the American Revolution, and as a person who loves and values the sovereignty of my country, I have nothing but condemnation and absolute contempt for the liberals who would destroy my country because of their narrow, anti-American agenda.

Dig deep on airport outage’s cause

The “Airport outage’s root cause” article in the AJC Business section was notable in what it did not reveal. It seems Georgia Power is doing a cover-up, hoping the questions will go away and everyone will forget that incompetence, mostly on Georgia Power’s part, allowed the mishap to happen. To do a decent failure analysis, the Atlanta airport authority should call on electrical engineers from Georgia Tech and power plant engineers from other large airports in the nation. Power outages at airports are not that common, so outside experience is desirable. The airport authority should do some self-examination of the power plant engineering at Hartsfield-Jackson to ensure back-up power is available for all systems. Electrical power for the airport is too important to be left to the “experts” at Georgia Power, who are just trying to protect their profits.

Opinion: Documenting my father’s route to becoming an American

On the dining room table before me is a rumpled piece of paper, barely bigger than a sticky note. It is the reason that I exist. The “Alien Head-Tax Receipt” recorded the fare paid by my grandmother at what was then called the Mexican Border District. To me it’s precious, like the companion she had with her that day — my then-infant...
Opinion: After Kavanaugh, the deluge

In the second year of his presidency, Donald Trump has become more and more willing to act Trumpishly rather than deferring to the official wisdom of his party. But with his second Supreme Court nomination, notwithstanding all the head-fakes and reality-television atmospherics, Trump has demonstrated that he’ll take his Trumpishness only so far...
Opinion: Trump, tariffs, tofu and tax cuts

According to early indications, recent U.S. economic growth was full of beans. No, seriously. More than half of America’s soybean exports typically go to China, but Chinese tariffs will shift much of that demand to Brazil, and countries that normally get their soybeans from Brazil have raced to replace them with U.S. beans. The perverse result...
Opinion: What the cave boys teach us about abortion

Twelve boys and their adult coach trapped in a dank, oxygen-deprived cave in Thailand riveted the world’s attention for two weeks. Why, people ask at times like this, are we so focused on these individuals when half a million Rohingya refugee children are in danger of starving on the Bangladesh border, or when 400,000 Yemeni children are severely...

ITP Amazon HQ2 win would worsen already-bad traffic Regarding “The quest for Amazon’s HQ2 continues” (Editorial, July 8), each morning I see live TV news broadcasts of endless rows of vehicles creeping along the freeways and, in some cases, not moving at all. Their destination is Atlanta and its environs. A simple observation says...
