Letter: Immigration rules now lead to deportation for traffic cases

Thanks for your editorial on Sunday regarding immigration issues. I think there is one fact you may have gotten wrong and that is that under the new administration, every noncitizen is equally prioritized for deportation when they go before the immigration court.

Tom Crawford: Lawmakers say goodbye to casinos, hello to yachts

The General Assembly session is more than two-thirds done and on track to adjournment. It's been a session more noteworthy for what wasn't done rather than what was, as illustrated by the casino gambling bills.

Letter: Money for local bus service could go to support private taxis

Every time I see one of those buses, I know it is costing us money. Why not subsidise the local taxi services? Let them handle all of the maintenance, employee expenses, etc.? That way a local business makes the money and some driver supports his or her family and pays taxes. Local businesses have enough to be concerned with.

Letter: Hall community is more united than ever to tackle poverty

As relative newcomers to this community, over and over we realize what a blessing it is to have landed here for our final, permanent home. Never have we had that feeling as much as experiencing the United Way gathering last Friday at First Baptist Banquet Hall, connecting providers of services toward a thorough, long-range process to break the cycle of poverty in Hall County. Former Gainesville schools Superintendent Merrianne Dyer, now Scholastic Cooperation national staff person, did a superb job facilitating the process.

Letter: Reservoirs would create jobs, save water for the next drought

Mr. President: When I last wrote you on Nov. 4, we were four days prior to the election and six months into a devastating drought. We and millions of others were praying for you and your family and your election. Congratulations on your, as pundits say, "stunning and improbable victory." Thank you for choosing people of strong character for your Cabinet and administration. The task is long and daunting. Much prayer, humility and backbone will be needed in the face of loud opposition.

Letter: Confederate flag wavers did so to back Charleston church shooter

Last August, the Roswell Police Department fired an officer for flying the Confederate flag. On Monday, a Georgia judge sentenced two other flag-wavers to more than a decade of prison time each. Neither incident is related to protections under the First Amendment. But both incidents are related to the guns owned by Dylan Roof.

Letter: Even a small risk of nuclear disaster is too much to chance

I've been a "nuke watcher" for over 40 years. This means I've attended numerous conferences and workshops, met with government officials and talked with experts in the field. Some try to reassure me. Everything, they say, contains a degree of risk, but nuclear power is safer and more sustainable than most. Our nuclear arsenal is the most secure in the world

Letter: No one is illegal; all deserve a chance here

I was one of the protesters holding a sign that stated, "We are ALL immigrants," and I will be one of them this weekend as well. I have done my research on American immigration. I learned in my primary schooling years about the many "founders" of this country - the ones who entered it illegally and decimated nearly the entire indigenous population.

Letter: No one is illegal; all deserve a chance to succeed in US

I was one of the protesters holding a sign that stated, "We are ALL immigrants," and I will be one of them this weekend as well. I have done my research on American immigration. I learned in my primary schooling years about the many "founders" of this country - the ones who entered it illegally and decimated nearly the entire indigenous population. There is no denying a war on immigrants and immigration (terms that we will all do well to remember is not bound by legality) in recent times.
