  • Letter: Frustration can now be walked off

    According to the figures cited in a July 27, Los Angeles Times' report, “The changing face of immigration,” it could be said that we're ingesting significantly misleading images depicting this migrant crisis, along with their verbal commentaries — i.e. regarding the true age and gender of the majority of the Central American migrants currently streaming across our southern border. Because they're not mostly little kids aged 12 and younger, after all. Rather, as the article's figures indicate, only about 16% of those apprehended so far this year fall into that age range. Eighty-four percent are 13- to 17-year-olds. Furthermore, as the article's between-the-lines figures reveal, most of this latter age group's members are 16 to 17 years of age, and most of them are boys. These “boys” are, therefore, on the cusp of young manhood, and, if not promptly sent back home, may soon be out competing with U.S. citizens and legal immigrants for our lowest-paying jobs.

    Intersections: Sweetness bears fruit in an ancient land
    In the summer in Armenia, fruit is a part of my daily life. I think about how it tastes, how long it lasts, where the best open air markets are located across the city to acquire the freshest of berries and apricots, and how many varieties of mulberries I...
