Re "Immigrant children deserve compassion, not taunting" (Editorial, July 6): I just want to thank the editorial board for commenting on this issue. When I saw the reception of these immigrants on the news that night, it made me very sad. Regardless of how I feel on this complex issue, I think that was a hateful and shameful display by adults who should know better.
I believe they projected a poor and angry image of our country, and they should really be ashamed of themselves. Those children on the bus were likely very frightened by that event and will probably carry that negative memory with them for life. If those people want to make a statement, take those signs and angry shouts to the state capitol so the policymakers can hear them, but leave the babies alone.
