I am very disappointed in the Tacoma City Council vote to condemn the Arizona immigration law (TNT, 5-26).
What business is it of Tacoma what Arizona is trying to do to control the illegal immigrants in that state? Mayor Marilyn Strickland was the lead in calling Arizona’s law ‘ un-American.” I will say that I will never vote for her again.
Take a look at the number of illegal immigrants who are here in the Tacoma area, taking jobs away from our tax-paying citizens, and then you can understand what Arizona is facing.
Rather than trying to be politically correct, why not try looking at what is good for the country and Tacoma?
