    It’s up to U.S. Congress to fix immigration mess Re “Long Beach officials want to expand on ‘sanctuary state’ protections” (Sept. 17): As Councilwoman Lena Gonzalez states: The city needs to take a “bold stand” to protect immigrants (I’m presuming legal immigrants).

    Congress can create new protection for Dreamers: Letters

    Our Question of the Week asked, Should “Dreamers” be allowed to stay in this country? Congress can create new protection for Dreamers I support giving “Dreamers” a special type of amnesty or special residency status since through no fault of their own they were illegally brought here when very young, and they’ve lived here for many years, striving for better lives. It would be unjust to deport them now from the only...

    Letters

    Our Question of the Week asked, Should “Dreamers” be allowed to stay in this country? Government shouldn’t be trusted on immigration I supported the 1986 Amnesty Act. I was younger, and I thought the government would do what it promised in the law: enforce hiring laws, which would dry up the job market for the undocumented, and secure the border. All the immigrant groups promised that if we show compassion, that amnesty would be the...

    Sportscaster should be sacked for Trump remarks: Letters

    Sportscaster should be sacked for Trump remarks I just have to comment about ESPN host Jemele Hill’s tweets calling President Trump a white supremacist and a bigot. Everyone in America is free to voice their opinions. That being said, it is also true that you can lose the respect from your audience by offending their political views. I remember Mike Ditka was fired by ESPN for his negative remarks about President Barack Obama. Although I am not a big...

    What price will Equifax officers pay after hack?: Letters

    What price will Equifax officers pay after hack? So, three senior Equifax officers sold off $1.8 million in holdings after the hack was discovered in July and before it became known to the public in September (and subsequently posted a 14.5 percent stock price loss). Didn’t Martha Stewart serve time in prison for a similar offense? A much less egregious offense, as I recall. I won’t hold my breath waiting for the Equifax officials to get locked...

    After hack, Equifax must make it up to the public Re “Equifax says data from 143 million Americans exposed in hack” (Sept. 7): Why not require Equifax to automatically offer free credit monitoring and identity theft protection to all customers since it has names, addresses, SSN, etc., and other pertinent data in their...

    Human activity is among factors in climate change: Letters

    Of course human activity is a climate-change factor Re “Climate change doesn’t have to be man-made” (Letters, Sept. 7): Do we lack humility for thinking we can affect the Earth’s climate? Probably not. Cow, er, flatulence has a major impact, as does microbial activity. Perhaps it’s prideful for us to consider our...

    Stormwater-fee bill affirms voters’ intent Re: “Gov. Brown should block stormwater-fee bill” (Editorial, Sept. 6): I write to correct the record. Your editorial does not accurately reflect Senate Bill 231, which supports capturing free rainwater rather than dumping it in the ocean. SB231 does not undermine or violate the Constitution. The voters approved Proposition 218 in 1996...

    Best of human spirit is on display in Houston floods: Letters

    Best of human spirit is on display in Houston floods I have been watching television showing the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas and how the people of Texas are helping their neighbors. TV shows them to be caring, concerned and courteous. With the horrendous impact of the hurricane, neighbors are helping neighbors. I had the opportunity to live in Texas for several years, and our home was also flooded by one of those thunderstorms that Texas is...
