In response to the letter from Clint Norris (“It’s an election year, pay attention,” AFN, Feb. 14), it is my hope that your readers pay close attention to what he wrote. We’ve elected people who choose not to address the tough issues, yet come back to us on their next campaign promising to “fix” things.

Norris asks if it is impossible to pass an immigration reform bill that requires background checks and back taxes to be paid. How can we believe anything we are told during re-election campaigns when the simplest things can’t be accomplished? Are people really offended by the simplest tests to earn legal status in this country?

Surely we can elect some people with enough backbone to tackle this growing national problem.

Thank you,

Dave Owen
