Reader: Either assimilate, or get out




In Patience Kabwasa's article, "We don't work for ICE," (DiverseCity, Oct. 18), she talks about her acquaintance, "Rosalina," who left Honduras when she was 14, and has lived here as a "good law-abiding citizen/immigrant for over 20 years."

Why has Rosalina occupied this country for over 20 years and not applied to become an American citizen? People cannot just cross borders illegally and work, pay taxes, etc., and also then choose not to go through the proper naturalization process that millions of others have in becoming citizens. You can't have it both ways. Either assimilate and become Americans, or get out.
