Stick to civics not politics

To the editor:

Plainly spoken we have three distinctive branches of government.

One is the legislative branch which is responsible for crafting the laws we the public deem necessary to maintain a civilized society.  

Two is the supreme court which judges the laws to make sure they are crafted and enforced within the framework of our Constitution.

Third and final is the executive branch which is responsible for enforcing the laws.

I don’t know if the porous southern border is an emergency or not, but it is clear that it’s the president’s duty to stop illegal immigration. The president must enforce all laws and it’s up to us to make sure he has whatever tools necessary to complete his task.

It’s also very important that we insist these three branches stay distinctive.
