A recent letter (“Trump bashing media,” Aug. 27, 2018) uses complex immigration issues to attack journalists and editors.
The ‘97 Flores Consent Decree could indeed be changed and improved by the Department of Homeland Security, or Congress could pass a bill allowing detained children to remain with families. We need a president who will promote humane DHS policy and foster a productive legislative environment to reform immigration laws. Moreover, the White House needs to explain exactly what’s happening with the $2.6 billion in aid allocated to combat Central American crime, poverty and gangs - also the root causes of Mexican illegal immigration.
Today, more than ever, the good work of journalists and editors matters.
