Letter to the editor: Focus on real problems

I wonder about the letter-writer who came home and found his wife dead ( “Guarding privacy during emergencies” ). His only concern seemed to be the paramedics going through her purse. Or the letter-writer who claims President Trump has lied 3,000 times ( “Answering three questions” ). Who was counting, how was it documented and, compared to the lies told by Presidents Clinton or Obama, how does it rank? Such silliness.

My concern is illegal immigrants being deported without their children. Exactly how does that solve a problem? I am against illegal immigrants but when they are deported, their children should go with them. Otherwise, we simply solve one problem and create another.

The answer cannot possibly be to lock them up together. Then we support all of them. Register their names in the court, send them home and let them come back when their case is called. Although I really don’t understand the need for court. They are illegal; case closed.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
