Soon it will be too late

The inability of our Congress to take any action on the issue of immigration is very frustrating.

It seems all that most of our so called “gentleman politicians” can do is show off their tailored suits while taking turns doing the Sunday morning talk show circuit, saying nothing of much substance.

This very sorry state of affairs reminds me of Germany’s post-World War I government, the Weimar Republic.

The failure of these “gentleman politicians” to reach any consensus resulted in the rise of the little man with the mustache who told the German people what they wanted to hear. And we know the rest of this story and its ending.

Come on gentleman, do not wait until it is too late.

— John C. Roman, Fort Worth
