Letters to the Editor

Poor choice of words, Gov. Reynolds

Thank you, Gov. Kim Reynolds, for your message of condolences following the news of Mollie Tibbetts’ death and the capture of a suspect. Sadly, instead of being sincere in your message of grief, you chose to inject politics into this by stating the system is broken because the suspect is an undocumented worker. Who was, by the way, employed by a high-level Republican donor, which you made no mention of.

A monster murdered this woman. Whether or not that monster was an undocumented immigrant has no bearing. Statistics show the majority of murders in this country are committed by monsters who are American citizens.
