    This post has been slightly revised as of April 2, 2016.

    Update, March 31, 1:10 pm:

    Ann Coulter, formerly one of Donald's biggest fans, and someone who has been even more extreme on immigration than Trump himself, by calling for a ban on all immigration, not just Muslims, has now gone off the Trump bandwagon because of his attack against Heidi Cruz.

    The Washington Post quotes Coulter's latest comment on Trump as follows:

    "Our candidate is mental. Do you realize our candidate is mental? It's like constantly having to bail out your 16-year old son from prison!"


    I will give Ann Coulter the benefit of the doubt and assume that she did not mean the above as a compliment.


    My original letter follows:

    Are American voters so anxious to seal the Mexican border and deport Latino and Asian immigrants that they would be willing to put someone of questionable rationality in the White House in order to run our immigration policy?

    Evidently the US border patrol union's answer to this question is yes. See:

    http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/...endorses-trump

    It might just be that the border control union is the only group left in America which does not have concerns over the rationality of actions that Trump says he might take as president.

    Trump has accomplished the almost unheard of feat in getting both pro and anti-abortion advocates to agree that his proposal to put women who obtain abortions in jail is dangerous and totally out of place in America.

    See:

    http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/...-pile-on-trump

    Trump is now also refusing to rule out US use of nuclear weapons if he is president:

    http://thehill.com/policy/defense/27...-any-situation

    As if this were not enough to put his rationality in question, Trump also wants to abolish the Geneva Conventions protecting both civilians and prisoners of war, including American soldiers, against torture and mistreatment.

    See:

    http://www.politico.com/blogs/2016/-...entions-221394

    This is not to say that advocating for more effective enforcement of America's immigration laws is irrational. It is definitely not irrational. Without question, enforcement is a legitimate topic for discussion and comment on both sides of the immigration debate.

    But is increased immigration enforcement such a critically urgent goal that this country would be willing to elect someone of questionable rationality who wants to put women in jail, while giving free rein to torturers and nuclear bombs, in the White House in order to accomplish this objective?

    Perhaps the border patrol union should think again.
