Dear editor,

A U.S. citizen can be charged with both spying and treason. A noncitizen can be charged with spying but not with treason. So a noncitizen is not subject to the full jurisdiction of our laws because they have not taken their oath to our nation and Constitution to receive citizenship.

Immigrants who cross our border legally do not receive instant citizenship and are required to attend an immigration hearing. Their own failure to attend, and 98 percent fail to attend, is their own indication of not wanting to be subjected to the jurisdiction of our immigration laws.

By remaining within our borders and committing other crimes including voting in any elections (local, state or federal) is another indication of not wanting to be subjected to the jurisdiction of our laws. Our Constitution's Article IV Section 4 states, "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican (Republic) Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion (militarily uniformed or not); and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."

The very basis our republic is built on is free and fair elections by and for our citizens in any local, state or federal election. With this and all that is happening I question some Democrats' oath to our Constitution and acts of treason regarding free and fair elections!
