Let­ter writer Ch­eryl Meyer blames the Democrats for the Hon­duran car­a­van ap­proach­ing our bor­der. Shouldn’t she blame Czar Don­ald Trump and the Repub­li­cans for this fi­asco since they are in con­trol? Af­ter all, the U.S. pol­icy re­gard­ing Hon­duras de­mands strength­en­ing a demo­cratic govern­ment, pro­mot­ing hu­man rights, en­hanc­ing eco­nomic pros­per­ity, and im­prov­ing long-term se­cu­rity.

So, rather than falsely ac­cuse the Democrats, shouldn’t Meyer ask why the Repub­li­cans con­tinue to send aid to Hon­duras, since the Hon­durans are not hon­or­ing this pol­icy?

I won­der who’s be­hind trick­ing the Hon­durans into ap­proach­ing our bor­der, only to send them away, so naïve Amer­i­cans would feel com­pelled to vote Repub­li­can?

Like Meyer, I be­lieve our borders should be pro­tected from il­le­gal en­trance, but I say to her, now is not the time to vote Repub­li­can, as she sug­gested, be­cause Amer­i­cans can­not af­ford to give this 45th pres­i­dent more power to con­tinue un­do­ing all that Amer­i­cans hold dear.

How could Meyer sup­port a pres­i­dent who lies all the time, who’s for tak­ing Medi­care and So­cial Se­cu­rity away, who’s for giv­ing in­sur­ance com­pa­nies the right to take away cov­er­age for ( pre-) ex­ist­ing con­di­tions, who gives the rich much and crumbs for the mid­dle class, who re­moves all reg­u­la­tions that would keep our en­vi­ron­ment safe, and who’s hell-bent on un­do­ing all that our fore­fa­thers put in place for a bet­ter U.S.?

Think twice, Meyer, or you will surely re­gret it. – Frankie Se­aberry, Cen­tre­ville
