    Dear Hillary:

    I sent Huma Abedin a message asking for your help, replying to her message. I attached a letter sent to Mr. Obama, where I ask for help to get a simple tourist visa for my spouse, Mar?a Jael Ord??ez, since I am an old teacher who wants to reunite with my family in the US for vacations with Mar?a. Ambassador Mamet ignores us, violating our Human Rights, while the Embassy keeps the money for her visa application. It is also inmoral! There is no reason whatosoever to deny a tourist visa to Mar?a, just because she is Colombian, without even checking her paperwork...

    Best of luck, Hillary

    Once again, Hillary Clinton has spoken out forcefully in favor of American values of respect of people of all religions by denouncing the Republicans' resort to anti-Muslim bigotry, especially in the statements of their presidential campaign front runner, Donald Trump.

    At the January 25 Democratic town hall in Iowa, Clinton received a question from an American Muslim veteran who asked if America is the best country to raise her children in view of the Islamophobia that is increasingly taking hold in this country.

    Clinton's answer was as follows:

    "One of the most disturbing aspects of this campaign has been the language of Republican candidates, particularly their front runner, that insults, demeans, denigrates different people...I found it particularly harmful the way that [Trump] has talked about Muslims.

    It's not only shameful and harmful to our values, it's dangerous...We cannot tolerate this."

    Clinton also mentioned the fear of attack which is making some Muslim children afraid to go to school in America.

    See:

    Earlier, on December 8, 2015, Clinton wrote, in reaction to Trump's call for a so-called "temporary" ban on all Muslims from entering the United States:

    "Donald Trump has made a name for himself in this election by trafficking in prejudice and paranoia."

    See:

    http://time.com/4141599/hillary-clinton-trump-muslims/

    By her principled stand in favor of American values in opposition to the craven, cowardly and despicable attempts by Trump, and to a lesser extent, some other Republican candidates and elected officials, to pander to hate and prejudice against Muslims, Mexicans and other minority immigrants and US citizens in order to gain political support, Hillary Clinton has shown that she, more than any other presidential candidate running today in either party, has the character and the courage that qualify her to be America's next president.

    Candidates

    I noticed that you intend to cover only the two major party candidates. I'd ask you to reconsider. Gov. Gary Johnson is almost certain to be the Libertarian candidate and will appear on the ballot in all fifty states. He was a popular GOP governor for two terms in a Democratic majority border state. He also happens to have the most pro-immigration platform.
    Or perhaps you want to wait until after Memorial Day, by which point he will have been officially nominated.
    I think you do your readers a disservice by excluding great alternatives.

    My two cents.

    Immigration Daily's editor has done us all a service by putting the immigration proposals of the minor Republican presidential candidates, who have about as much chance of becoming president as I do, together in the January 26 editorial.

    With almost robot-like repetition, their proposals all boil down to "Secure the Border!" Secure the Border!" Translated, this means "No more Mexicans! No More Latinos! Trump would add: "No More Muslims!" Coulter would say: "No more immigrants!"

    The fact that some reports show that net migration to the US from Mexico is now zero, or even minus, does not count. "Secure the border!" "Secure the border!"

    These Republican candidates may not have any chance of winning, but they are certainly telling us what kind of people they do not want to see in America, with its dwindling white majority.

    It is out of this morass of racism and prejudice that the Frankenstein of Donald Trump has arisen.
