Boy, am I relieved. I must have been "sleeping at the switch" lately because I just realized our national leaders have solved a problem that has been bugging me for a long time.

I am among those who have been concerned about the endless flow of illegal immigrants moving freely across our borders each day.

I used to worry that among the erstwhile innocents searching for economic opportunity there could be terrorists intending us harm.

I used to worry too that the illegals, once in our country's "sanctuary cities," caused too many additional crimes and drained the resources of our schools, hospitals and welfare agencies.

I thought too that overlooking the crimes of the illegals fostered disrespect for the rule of law and for the sovereignty of our borders.

But now there are no more worries. The problem has been solved. How do I know this?

Well, think about it: No candidate for the presidency even speaks about illegal immigration or the cost of dealing with illegals once they land in our country.

They would only do this if these matters were no longer an issue or a problem, wouldn't they?
