To the editor:

I have the perfect solution to the largest portion of our gang violence, overcrowded prisons, policemen who have no faith in the judicial system and are tired of putting their lives on the line each day: Any individual from another country who is found guilty of a criminal offense before they are a naturalized citizen, at the time of sentencing, should be shipped back to their homeland.This may be the land of the free and a refuge for all the world, but if the individual cannot abide by our laws, he or she does not deserve to live here. It is time to swing the pendulum back the other way and give the citizens the protection, instead of the criminal.
