Re: “Buoys strung on canal to halt drowning,” (Journal, Jan. 4): I came to believe that we didn’t want illegal immigrants in this country. So why are we installing life-saving buoys in a canal that is frequently crossed by immigrants trying to get into the U.S.? Why don’t we use the money to build some sort of barrier or fence around the canal? I think that would be a more effective alternative. A fence would save lives and keep immigrants out. If people keep drowning, let’s keep them out of the canal in the first place, instead of giving them buoys to hang onto and help them. This could help with our immigrant problem and prevent unnecessary deaths. LARA MACON, student, Auburn
