Re: Letter, April 14, “Thanks, Obama”

Regarding the letter about immigrants only needing a passport to purchase a vehicle. Why do you publish trash letters like this? Your staff should have sufficient intelligence to know that the letter writer is not correct.

There is no requirement for anyone to have a driver’s license to purchase a vehicle. Nor is there a requirement for the purchases to offer proof of insurance, unless the vehicle is being purchased with a loan. Then the loaning company wants to know the loan is protected. 

By publishing letters of this type the newspaper is propagating fake news and encouraging others to believe it. If you feel that you must publish it then make an editorial remark at the end explaining the real criteria.
