Obama's immigration order is a good start on reform

To the editor: Regarding your story on immigration reform, your headline made me so furious that I had difficulty bringing myself to read the actual article. Of course President Obama cannot solve our entire immigration problem with one executive order, but it is a start. ("Obama's action on immigration leaves millions still facing deportation," Nov. 21)

Maybe you should have written about the Republican action to address the issue. How's that working out for the millions of people here illegally?

Peggy Jo Abraham, Santa Monica


To the editor: Continuing "to live with the fear of deportation" is not the only possibility for those who won't benefit from Obama's action. Two alternatives are either leaving the country voluntarily or initiating the process that should have been done upon entering the first time.

To the editor: After reading today's front-page piece on immigration reform and another piece in the Business section about how the president's action may help Obamacare, I realize that old saw, "Laws are made to be broken," applies to people besides Wall Street bankers and a few select politicians.

Walter Carlin, Del Mar
