Intent of immigration

Many think that opening the border and letting millions of undocumented individuals cross the border illegally is a jester in human dignity and will be looked upon favorably by God.

I would agree to some extent, but I would like to know what the intent of this good deed is. If the good deed has an underlying quid-pro-quo intent, then it is not a good deed. The Democrats want to ensure their continued existence in power and will stop at nothing to achieve that power.

The mainstream media will not talk about these immigrants that are being transported to Republican-controlled states, because they are in bed with the Democratic party and a big part of the problem in this country. Even the Pentagon is assisting the administration in this effort by allowing civilian airlines to land on military bases, in particular Laughlin Air Force base in Del Rio Texas, to transport these immigrants to their final destination and the base personnel are saddled with gag orders, stopping them from talking to anyone about these stop overs nor are they allowed to take pictures.

These people do not know how to read, write or speak our language so how will they learn our processes and ways of life? They have no idea why they are being transported to predetermined destinations.

What about the American citizens in these states that will now be burdened with taking care of the needs of these individuals? The American citizens did not ask for this and they did not have any voice in the decisions.

These immigrants are beholden to Biden and will vote Democrat regardless of what their eyes may be showing them.

The federal government is supposed to protect this country and its people, and they are failing miserably. Col. Oliver North has a book that was just released titled, “We didn’t fight for Socialism.” I will be reading it and perhaps you should to.

God bless America and help us get through these troubling times.

Clair Moyer,



Letter policy

The Standard-Journal welcomes letters to the editor and encourages the use of this forum as a means of active community involvement.

Our goal is to run all signed letters to the editor in a timely manner with as little editing as possible. We ask that letters be typed, neatly printed, or emailed, and that writers be brief, making their points concisely.

Only the name and hometown of letter writers will be published in the newspaper. However, submissions must include the author’s name (typed or printed), signature (written submissions), address and telephone numbers.

We reserve the right to reject any copy or letters, but will do so only on rare occasions, typically when what is written prompts legal or ethical concerns, or when the letter is unusually lengthy. In some cases, however, we will contact writers to suggest changes that could make their letters acceptable for print.

Your opinion counts! Please write to: Letters to the Editor, The Standard-Journal 21 Arch St., Milton, PA 17847 or email

Political news and editorial coverage

1. The newspaper does not endorse candidates for local, state or national office.

2. As a general rule, the newspaper does not cover fund-raising dinners or promotional gatherings limited to particular candidates or political parties.

3. When a person announces his or her candidacy, the newspaper will run a news story. Such announcements must be received no later than one (1) month after the filing date for a particular office.

4. The newspaper will publish news stories about write-in campaigns. Since decisions to run write-in campaigns sometimes are made shortly before an election, there is no deadline set on receiving such announcements.

5. Election-related news coverage beyond or in exception to the above will be at the sole discretion of the newspaper’s publisher and editor in the name of reader interest and information.

Letters to the editor

1. Election-related letters must address pertinent or timely issues of interest to our readers at-large.

2. The newspaper does not publish partisan letters that promote or endorse local political candidates based on their record, reputation and qualifications. This constitutes paid political advertising.

3. Candidates themselves may not use the letters to the editor column to outline their views and platforms or to ask for votes. This constitutes paid political advertising.

4. The newspaper is particularly sensitive to organized “letter-writing campaigns” that we believe to be part of a contrived attempt by a political camp to use the editorial page for campaigning purposes, or to otherwise attempt to manipulate our policies for a political advantage. As with all letters and advertising content, the newspaper, at the sole discretion of management, reserves the right to reject any such letter.

5. The newspaper strongly encourages writers to limit election-related letters to 300 words.

6. To help insure fairness, all letters to the editor of a political nature must be received at the newspaper office at least 10 days before the election. (Two Saturdays prior to Election Day.)

7. The exception to the 10-day rule is a response to a previous letter of an attacking or derogatory nature. In the name of fairness, the newspaper will accept such a response after the deadline, provided it is written and delivered promptly (See No. 8). Such responses may rebut charges, innuendos or misstatements of fact from the initial letter but may not present new charges or level inflammatory counterattacks on the opposing political camp.

8. Under no circumstances will any election-related letter be published after the Friday immediately prior to Election Day.

9. In the case of questionable content (e.g. unfounded allegations, statements of fact that are suspect, or assaults on a candidate’s character or moral standards), the newspaper reserves the right to verify such information before publication, or to edit letters. Any changes necessary to render a letter suitable for publication will be reviewed with the writer prior to publication.

10. All letters must be signed and include the address and telephone number of the writer. Phone numbers are for questions and verification purposes only and will not be published.
