LETTER: GOP runs from immigration compromise

I had to chuckle into my coffee when I heard about the Republican rejection of the bipartisan immigration bill. It’s like watching a sitcom in which the characters keep making the same silly mistakes over and over again, except this time it’s our government.

While President Joe Biden is out there trying to untangle the mess, it seems Donald Trump is still stuck in his own reality TV show, where drama reigns supreme and policy takes a backseat. I can almost hear the dramatic music playing in the background as Republicans dance around the issue, twirling with Mr. Trump’s campaign rhetoric instead of facing the music.

I mean, who needs progress when you can have political theatrics? It’s like they’re auditioning for a role in “Immigration: The Soap Opera,” where every episode ends with a cliffhanger and no resolution in sight.

So to our Republican friends: It’s time to put down the popcorn, step away from the TV remote and start working on behalf of the American people. Because while Mr. Trump might be looking for his next reality TV gig, the rest of us are just looking for some real solutions.

Playing in a minor league park in Salt Lake City or Sacramento for three years is an insult to Las Vegas fans when we have a new minor league park here.

LETTER: A path toward immigration reform

In my view, immigrants seeking to come to the United States send a powerful message about what a great country we have.

LETTER: Student loan forgiveness?

If I bought a car for $20,000 and didn’t pay in full or make payments, it would be repossessed.
