Open forum: High taxes, illegal immigration

E-mail this article \ Print this article

The county’s economy is on a downslide and the loss of more than 5,000 jobs this past year is an indication of that.

The reason for this are the high taxes the county imposes on its residents and small businesses.

The county’s liberal policies continues to encourage illegal immigrants to migrate here and the county overtaxes its residents to provide benefits for the illegal immigrants.

When the county cuts services it makes wrong choice. It cuts police services. The right thing to do would be crack down on illegal immigrants and deny them benefits and reduce taxes.

The county is going in the wrong direction and soon citizens will start moving away because of the excessive taxes.

Wake up citizens and remember this when you go to the polls next time. The only other choice is to pack up and move to a more tax-friendly county or state.
