Letter: Illegal immigration impacts Vail Valley lives

Davey DeChant
Edwards, CO Colorado

Response to “Press 1 for English”: The suggestion that illegal immigration is not a major concern of Vail Valley residents is absurd when considering how it impacts each of our lives daily. Not only are there illegal immigrants occupying jobs that would normally be available to legal residents needing a position, but there are numerous illegals inside of our school systems, making it more difficult for teachers to hold the attention of increasingly growing classes and denying legal children their maximum chance to succeed academically.

The crowding of not only occupations but also local schools represents major concerns for legal residents of the valley and should not be shrugged off amidst other problems in the world today.
