Your Sept. 1 article "Local immigrants critical of Trump's Mexico visit" reveals quite a bit about the local immigrants interviewed. Genevieve Gonzalez states "it's disrespectful for him to go to a country he's been bad mouthing and then make a peace offering." I counter that his traveling to Mexico shows respect, and would ask her what is wrong with seeking peace? Gil Avalos stated "I don't think anything good can come of it." I ask him, can it hurt to try? Julio Campos of the Cancun Inn stated "I can't believe he has the .... to go visit Mexico after the things he's expressed about illegal immigrants." He also stated "They don't want him in Mexico City." Who are "they?"

Since Nieto invited Trump, I would say "they" did want him to come and talk. The bigger man (Trump) shows courage and goes and meets with Mexico's president to try and find common ground while the smaller man complains. The only immigrant with any sense, it seems, is Ricardo Hernandez who said he's glad Trump and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto are talking. Shouldn't we all be glad?
