Re "A tale of two border kids" (Page A1, Aug. 13): While I understand the unfortunate conditions of people coming from their troubled countries to the U.S. for a better life, I believe that if it's not done legally, then they should be sent back, ASAP. No excuses are really strong enough since much of the time their evidence can't be proven.
How does that compare to the many people who have gone through the legal method to come to our country? They applied, waited, got permission, arrived and studied to become citizens over many years. Are their efforts undervalued by articles that imply a faster illegal method is OK to live here a long time before real action is taken concerning their case history?
