Immigration raids inhumane

Thank you for allowing Interfaith Worker Justice to speak out against immigration raids. The December 13 editorial, "U.S. must stop workplace raids, enact immigration reform," was right to point out how inhumane, unnecessary, and potentially dangerous it is for the government to initiate these raids. It is understandable that the U.S. government wants to ensure that its country is secure, but that is not an excuse to strip the dignity and civil rights of those who just want to find better opportunities for themselves and their families. I look forward to reading more editorials that tackle this issue.
