LETTERS: Reader defends visit by Trump

Just a few comments/observations regarding President Trump’s recent visit to our southern border.

As might be expected, some Trump-hating Democrat politicians and pro-immigration activists used the visit to not only bash President Trump, but Gov. Gregg Abbott as well, for drawing attention to what can only be described as an invasion along our southern border. Some described the visit as a cheap political stunt and photo op.

Many Democrat politicians have made it abundantly clear that they care more about protecting illegal immigrants than their own constituents. They apparently do not have a problem with the surrender of our southern border to drug cartels, human traffickers and other criminal organizations.

Am I the only one who thinks there is something wrong with this picture?
