Letter: City Council election ‘very dull’ without me

Aug 23, 2017

Dear Mukilteo residents,

Thank you so much for supporting me in my previous City Council elections.

Every year, elections come and go, people come and go, but our values should remain the same. Our job as Mukilteo residents is to pick qualified candidates who care for our city, without looking at their ethnicity, national origin, skin color, race, religion or sex. We need to look at their work in the community and their qualifications.

I always participate in elections to demonstrate that I am a corporate citizen. To me, winning or losing does not matter; I always work hard for our beautiful city. My voting record is so solid over the past 10 elections – 8 out of 10. Most of the time I attend council meetings, and community events.

I have done every possible thing to make sure our city is strong and safe. Some people in Mukilteo didn’t endorse me because I opposed increasing sales taxes and property taxes.

Some residents have misunderstood me when I favor welcoming undocumented immigrants into our city. I feel like we are all human beings with the right to live wherever we want as long as we follow the law of the land.

I have applied more than 12 times to different commission positions in the city of Mukilteo, and I was rejected every single time. Do I get distressed? Not at all, because I feel I am very intelligent, and I’m not going anywhere. I am living in Mukilteo, and possibly I’ll apply again.

By the way, a lot of people are telling me that without me running, the election looks very dull.

The thing you don't seem to get and realize, Mr. Khan, it that undocumented immigrants are ILLEGAL immigrants, breaking the laws the US...and are not following the land of the law of the US.

For example, in Mexico..."Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals."

The same law follows in Canada and many other countries. And the 20 some year old girl who was raped, beaten inside her own apartment complex in Renton, simply working out in her workout room, attacked by an illegal "dreamer" who also attacked another 14 year old the prior day...she practically had her ear ripped off, many teeth nocked out, and found walking bruised and bloody in just her tank top...asking for help.

I say no thanks to Illegal immigrants... If they have no respect for our basic law....that is a crime and criminal...why protect them?

Illegal immigration is against our laws....you can call it "undocumented" if you want, and it makes you feel better... but it is illegal....I don't support a candidate who wants to support illegal activity, go around the laws, regardless of race, creed or religion.. There are many people following the laws, going through the proper channels, on wait lists, with background checks wanting to get into our country.
