Check the facts

President Trump fired his national security appointee Craig Deare for voicing his opinion, which did not agree with the president’s. Trump’s dictatorial qualities are dangerous to our freedoms.

Trump’s fake news

When will it become apparent to all that every time the Twitterer-in-chief, or one of his minions, is exposed in a lie or an activity of questionable legality, he floods the media with his mantra of “fake news” in the “biased media.” It would be wonderful if he were flooded with return tweets of derision. Perhaps then he would declare the biased Internet was also all fake news and stop using it.

Comply with the law

Good for Mayor Carlos Gimenez and the Miami-Dade county commissioners who voted not to release criminal immigrants from our jails, but rather comply with federal directives. This ensures that federal funds Miami-Dade is due to receive for transportation projects, among others, will remain forthcoming. The transportation funds will benefit our community, including hardworking immigrants.

Zoning codes

Mark Minervino’s Feb. 19 letter, “Homeowner rights,” takes Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado to task for wanting to stop AirBnB-type rentals. He argues that a homeowner’s right to generate income legally is subordinated to the “whims of local government” and applies “nearly unquantifiable standards.” He calls upon citizens to “rise up about government intrusion.”
