Letter to the Editor

What President Donald Trump is proposing constitutes a major assault on the freedom to immigrate. The right to follow other family members to the U.S. has, from the start, been a part of our immigration practice. Why would he curb this? Why would he make it a crime for parents and siblings and older children to join their families?

To use the "Dreamers" as a bargaining chip to do away with an important part of family migration is a horrible thing. They are literally being held hostage, with the price of their freedom being the loss of the freedom of their loved ones.
