Learn the facts on immigration
This current election cycle is so interesting — both nationally and locally. Lots of information is being flung around. In the interest of basic understanding of the law, I would like to see Sheriff Auten develop a “citizen training” program for immigration law and responsibility.
Starting with existing immigration laws, I would like him to include law enforcement required actions, how sanctuary cities are formed, mayor and police chief interaction and specialty-group influence and pressure on local officials — elected and appointed.
Also to be included, how fear and misinformation are distributed. Written questions could be handed in before class with oral discussions held after class. Both these segments might guide the way for more class information.
Hopefully Sheriff Auten can build on his already successful “citizens training” program. Rowan County definitely has great personnel in retired law enforcement, lawyers and service people. We also have West End Plaza. Just some facts — no innuendo and fear-mongering.

Students are taught to lay brick in high school if they want to learn.
Why do the schools not teach students to be electricians, plumbers, carpenters, painters and mechanics?
I don’t have children and maybe these things are taught. Let me know if they are.
