A view of a section of the wall separating Mexico and the United States is seen March 7 from Tijuana, Mexico. An Archdiocese of Mexico City editorial condemned Mexican companies wishing to work on the proposed wall being built on the U.S.-Mexico border as "traitors" and called on authorities to castigate any company that provides services for fencing off the frontier.


Regarding “After aggressive encounter, St. James Parish reconsiders security measures,” (Feb. 3, page 7):

Your story reports the installation of security measures at St. James Parish in McMinnville because of an incident with an unbalanced man wielding a knife.

Our parish has done the same. We used to just walk into the parish office. Now we push a button and wait for admittance.

I think we should give President Trump’s administration the benefit of the doubt regarding a pause on immigration from countries producing the most unbalanced individuals wielding knives — and bombs.

A temporary executive order does not mean America is slamming the door on persecuted people.
