Regarding the recent “Day Without Immigrants,” marked with rallies locally and throughout the United States, I believe that all people are equal and should be treated equally. Nevertheless, all people must follow rules and laws created to promote equality and order.

People have been breaking laws by entering the United States “freely” and illegally. This is irrational. Coming into a country illegally is wrong, and it is rightful to stop it. Laws must be followed. The president’s proposal to prevent illegal entry is justified. People wanting to travel across borders must do so while respecting laws.
