Letter: Protesters seem to have double standard


The Feb. 24 Courier contained an article on the upcoming trial of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent.

It included a picture of the agent with protesters from the Border Action Network in the background. One of the protest signs said "No one is above the law."

The Border Action Network supports illegal immigrants. A reasonable possibility exists that the sign holder could be an illegal, and if not, he no doubt has friends that are.

He and his fellow protesters obviously think their illegal friends are above the law since they very strongly support their presence in this country. That is a prime example of a double standard. It would be interesting to hear the Border Action Network's rationale for this double standard.
