Letter: Trump's speech was one of the best

Maybe one of the best speeches ever given — in modern American history — by Donald Trump on Aug. 31. How can any American disagree with his position on illegal immigration?

It’s amazing that Obama/Clinton democrats don’t talk about or respond to the comment: Why do we have 11 million immigrants illegally in our country? Is it illegal for them to be here or not? Either we have laws/rules in our country or we are defenseless/unconstitutional. We have safe zones for this in our country. So we can do things against our constitutional laws and hide in a city in America? Can Americans rob banks/kill people and hide in a sanctuary city? We has massive amounts of drugs/gangs/guns crossing our southern boarders daily. Enough!

I’m confident most Americans don’t understand this serious immigration topic that Trump has the courage to address. It’s time this country sends a message to Washington politicians — Americans are done with the Clinton lies/bribes/corruption/lawlessness they live by and get away with.
