Re "Immigrant children deserve compassion not taunting" (Forum, July 6): If I can tell my own children "No, I can't afford that," I can politely tell someone else's children "No, I can't afford that." The standard journalistic/liberal shorthand of reducing the phrase "illegal immigrant" to merely "immigrant" does not change that.
