Dreamers: you are here in the U.S. illegally. That is most likely a felony.

All illegals must go back to their country of origin and begin paperwork to re-enter, legally, if that is what they really want.

I want to say right now I have no bias towards different races. In the 40 years I have lived in Crescent City, I have had among two closest friends: one friend was a Yurok, now passed away, and the other Filipino, now moved to Nevada...enough said.

Both sets of my grandparents immigrated to Canada, one set from Scotland and the other set from England, legally. My parents, my sister and I immigrated to the U.S. from Canada, legally, when I was in my teens.

That is what I wish for all people who want to live here. Do it legally, then you won’t have to be looking over your shoulder to see who is following you.

God bless you.
