Letter: Young men should stay in their country and fight

Editor: For days now I have been watching the TV news with shock.

I am amazed at the scenes of thousands of  people storming and breaking through Europe’s borders. Demanding and angry, they expect entry.

Most of the people you see pushing  through Europe’s borders are young men, who should be staying in their own countries to help fight for their country — not leaving it.

Obviously, they do not have the back bone to fight for their own country.

When they get to the West will they join our army to help fight — like the French, Dutch, Belgians and Polish did in the Second World War?

No, they expect the West to fight for them.

When and if the West does fight, they will call us infidels and hate us.

How do we know who these young men are? Are they sent by ISIS?

The immigrants from these countries who can afford to spend money on boats, train rides, trucks and bus rides to the European borders are the middle class who should be staying in their country to try to solve its problems.

If they all come, they will send for all their family. They will change our country’s infrastructures, our social services, overwhelm our health care, police and laws.

I am not a raging redneck.  I am a grandmother.

I think I am a fairly moderate and broad-minded person.

I try to see both sides of a problem.  I am compassionate and caring about the needs of others.

I read about and think about the world’s problems and I care.

I believe in humanitarian aid and helping our fellow man but we cannot accept them all into our countries.

We should try to help these people within their own counties with compassion, food, medicine, shelter and/or what other help we can supply.

If we have to take some of these immigrants we should be careful  and perform due diligence with their applications.
