      I am a conservative republican who disagrees with Trump on almost everything relating to immigration. After 30 years with the INS and 9 years with USCIS, I can easily recognize the flaws in his immigration statements. However, by linking his stand on immigration to what I consider silly democrat ideas, such as income inequality and climate change, you lose all credibility on the immigration issue. Maybe you don't know how to attack his immigration stands and therefore sink to a low by linking them to very controversial issues unrelated to immigration. To be honest, I liked Marco Rubio's original immigration proposal. However, your cartoon gives the impression you would not support any republican, no matter how good his or her immigration plan might be.

      The point I make is that Mr. Trump's salient focus and indeed his initial claim to fame as a candidate were his xenophobic and inflammatory remarks on how to deal with our immigration crisis, overshadowing other issues that need to be addressed. I surmise that you do not feel that ignoring income inequality or climate change is a bad thing. Would you agree that they are worth discussing in place of discussing mass expulsions and taller walls?

      I am a republican who does not like Trump, however, your method of attacking him actually makes me want to defend him. I think income inequality cannot be corrected by the federal government. There are already laws in place which require federal employees to get the same pay for the same work (in the same geographical location). Most states have similar laws. The problem with income inequality can be solved by people getting better education or learning a trade, not be taking from the rich and giving to the poor. Climate change may be real, but democrats are only using it as a means of destroying those they disagree with. Ever notice how environmentalists complain about nuclear power plants in the United States, but say nothing about France (which gets most of its power from nuclear plants)?

      Last month I had a letter published by the Fresno Bee in which I pointed out how Trump is wrong on anchor babies. I attacked him with facts I learned from my 39 years working as an immigration officer, 29 of those years in upper management.
