Re: “Family Portraits

I have known several LGBT couples who have adopted kids. They are inspiring, beautiful people and I am so grateful that they are there to provide these kids a great home.

Re: “Guest Commentary

I am grateful for this article. I have had many friends over the years who were here escaping persecution in other countries, or just looking for a better life.

For those of you who have no compassion for other people, regardless of their legal status, I hope that at least one person gets their eyes opened a little from this article.

I think it is telling that if your skin is a certain color and you break a certain law, then you are 'illegal' and everything you do is illegal. But if you break a different law and your skin is a different color, then you are someone who has committed a crime.

People from Europe came here and took everything from the people who lived here and we are all benefitting from that. Many people came together and built this very community and they came from all over the world and many were undocumented.

It is unfortunate that people exaggerate or completely fabricate stories about the 'illegals' coming up from the south. Maybe your arguments would be heard by more people if you spoke the truth and kept an open mind?
