Karen Garcia wrote an excellent article on the personal heartbreak that is the result of immigration policies and enforcement that has been given the wink and nod for more than 40 years ("After deportation," April 25). Congress needs to do something about this now. Actually it should have been done yesterday. President Trump has offered many opportunities to pass legislation addressing DACA, among other immigration issues, and the Democrats have flatly said no. How does the saying go? "If you are not part of the solution then you must be part of the problem."
I personally sent emails twice to U.S. Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara) to please work with the president to stop this separation of families by finding legislative solutions to immigration law and violations. I got standard "thanks" replies. Perhaps Carbajal should be spelled "Cabal." The Democrats will not stop grousing about the last election until they lose the next one. Voters did not elect representatives to fuss and obstruct government action on the people's concerns, or did they, perhaps by mistake.
