Helen Aguirre Ferré’s disconnect

Re the June 10 article Aguirre Ferré: I’m not quitting because of ‘DREAMers’: Helen Aguirre Ferré’s stance shows a serious disconnect in insisting on her right to remain head of the board of trustees of Miami Dade College while supporting Donald Trump in her new role as director of Hispanic communications for the Republican National Committee.

Even if Trump’s crass continual assaults on residents of Hispanic heritage do not offend Ferré, her outspoken support of Trump — whose now-defunct Trump University was a shameless scam that drove thousands of vulnerable people deep into debt and made a mockery of the idea of higher education — should offend her fellow trustees and the entire Miami Dade College community.
