Mr. Fridgen would toss me right into the wacko liberal basket (May 8) because I was so nonplussed by President Trump’s idea about relocating illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities.

Well… maybe I could actually go for a plan like that, if there really was a plan. But there isn’t. No part of that proposal was designed to actually help anyone or is intended to address any part of the intensely complex migration/immigration issue. That half-baked idea was just Mr. Trump, tossing out some red meat at one of his rallies (an NRA rally, in fact). We shouldn’t even be taking that seriously, and yet, here we are. We have to take it seriously, because our president said it.

It sure would be helpful if President Trump would use his position to help calm the debate, so that we citizens could think about it a little more clearly. I guess I won’t hold my breath for that to happen, though.
