I am writing to correct the misinformation in the Thursday letter about border security, “Follow the law, deport scofflaws.” The writer blames our current president for the children entering our country across our southern border. In the 1980s there was an actor and he was elected president. His policies destroyed and bled the democracy right out of more than a few sovereign nations in South America. The children the writer wants deported and sent back to where they are trying to escape are blowback of these very policies, and might I add, crimes. All you have to do is check the place of origin of these desperate humans beings who are running for their lives. Seems to me we owe them a safe landing and more. Funny how history will show the truth if you care to see it.
