Open letter to Obama

Dear editor:

Open letter to President Barack Obama.

Dear President Barack Obama,

As an American citizen I request that you issue a presidential pardon to all noncriminal, undocumented Mexican workers currently in the United States of American based on their numerous varied merits. It is your prerogative to use Article II, Section 2 of the United States Constitution to use this presidential pardon before you leave office.

We all know that the next president has bragged about deporting millions of workers and their families and bragged about building a "great wall," while he ignores the intrinsic qualities of these proud people.

The Hispanic population and other compassionate Americans will be forever grateful for your show of empathy and concern for our undocumented workers and their families.

Best regards,

Porfirio Gutierrez

Hot Springs
