On this 49th Earth Day, the population of our country has passed 327 million … with no upper limit in sight.
E-Verify can act as a major deterrent for future illegal immigration. As long as employers are able to hire illegal workers, foreign nationals will continue to attempt to enter the country illegally, either through illegal border crossings or overstaying a visa.

I agree with the letter writer who suggested we contact our elected officials to urge them to opt out of California’s “sanctuary” status, much as Los Alamitos has already done in Orange County (Daily Press, Letters, March 27, 2018).
I oppose any and all DACA amnesties. Thus, it is vital that neither you nor your fellow Republicans bow to pressure and include a DACA amnesty in the omnibus spending bill.
I was disturbed to read in the Washington Post that you are open to DACA legislation that only provides for border wall funding. Securing the border is a good first step, but it does nothing to end the jobs magnet and does nothing to stop people overstaying their visas. A wall will stop many from coming to this country illegally, but some will still get past it and many will continue to come to the U.S. legally and overstay their visas.
I hope you will oppose all efforts to attach a DACA amnesty to the omnibus spending bill.
