As lawmakers have realized for some time, the immigration debate stirs a great deal of emotion from people on both sides of the issue. On this blog I share my opinions while respecting the fact that some readers may disagree with them. I welcome comments regardless of one’s stance on the issue as it makes for a more interesting site. However, I have recently received some comments awaiting moderation that either contained profanity or that I would characterize as hateful. I will therefore adopt the following comment policy for the site:
1. No profanity or name-calling;
2. No suggestions on how to deport and/or cruelly punish undocumented aliens; and
3. No specific questions regarding individual cases.
There are many forums that would welcome comments that violate my first two restrictions (I see them every day). The third is for malpractice reasons, I cannot offer legal advice on a blog, especially without knowing all the particulars of a case. Also, the goal of this site is to provide information of a general nature that is of interest to most readers.
