Commentary – “Don’t foment hate; address roots of immigration problems”
Interesting article by Immigration lawyer Ricardo Skerrett.
“Recent anti-immigrant letters are an example of how misinformation can slant and misguide public opinion on an issue that has different angles.
Sadly, this is becoming a hate issue to the extreme that many would go as far as negating undocumented immigrants a basic right upon which our nation is founded: the due process of law.
Even foreign nationals who are not citizens enjoy basic due process rights, including the right to counsel, to confront witnesses and to a fair and impartial hearing. This is what has made our form of government so unique, so great and a source of inspiration throughout the world. “
