In regards to Shawn Vestal’s comments in yesterday’s Spokesman-Review regarding the U.S. Border Patrol retention of the Oregon comedian (“Searching for logic in 100-mile rule for Border Patrol,” Jan. 30), nowhere in his comments did he note that this legal immigrant was legally required to carry documentation proving he was in the country legally, which he did not have. Why didn’t he mention this?
Also, he made numerous comments regarding the disregard of the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution.
Mr. Vestal, the 100-mile limit was instigated to protect our country from illegal activity. Are you against that protection?
Where are your comments advocating the Second Amendment? A new law in Washington state will make me, a citizen born in the USA, a criminal if I do not keep my firearms locked, in my own home. If a criminal breaks into my house and steals them, I will be prosecuted as a criminal. Where are your comments condemning this law that disregards “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” portion of the Second Amendment?
You cannot pick and select only the parts of the Constitution that you deem appropriate. All amendments are relevant.
