The article on the recent area ICE raids and immigrant arrests in WNC was very powerful. To hear of people in our community with no criminal records cowering in fear of going to the grocery store is shocking. Kudos to the good folks at BeLoved House for helping to alleviate some of their fears and suffering [as reported in the April 20 Citizen Times article, “Asheville Volunteers Work to Feed Families Hiding from ICE”].
Make America great again? These days I can hardly recognize this country. Land of the free and home of the brave? Maybe the Trump Team should manage their little hypocrisy problem here by covering the Statue of Liberty with a “huge” shroud. At least that would be honest.
