My name is Maria Silvia Montoya and I am a proud American Latina and board member of The Dustin Inman Society. I have recently returned to Texas from Georgia, but continue to monitor Georgia politics and immigration issues there.


Duluth Councilman Kirkland Carden recently condemned Sheriff Butch Conway for including D.A. King, president of the Dustin Society, as a panelist in a recent meeting regarding the Gwinnett County jail’s 287(g) program (“Duluth councilman calls for condemnation of sheriff,” Aug. 4, A1.)

I am originally from Pennsylvania, but I frequently visit Georgia and spend a lot of time in Gwinnett County. As a father of two young daughters, I am especially impressed with the quality of the county's parks and play facilities.

The Special Counsel found sweeping and systematic Russian interference with 2016 Presidential election. Yet Thomas is silent, as well as all Congressional Republicans, on this finding.

After reading about the straws and lids issue for the Gwinnett Stripers at Coolray Field ("Don't put a lid on it," April 10, 1A), this is simply the reason you can't take your family to a ballgame.

I further resent that Gwinnett County commissioners refused to even place the simple word of “MARTA” on the ballot.

It appears their platform is impeach President Trump, raise taxes, strangle businesses with more regulations, get more people dependent on the government and wealth redistribution.

John Kelly said a few days ago that when he was a kid growing up, “women were sacred, looked upon with great honor.” Well even in those days, so halcyon in his memory, so full of “societal norms” in yours, sexual harassment was commonplace

The problem is that if the vast majority is correct but we take no remedial actions, the earth could be severely, maybe irreparably, harmed as early as our grandchildren’s generation.

Scientists are not always great communicators, especially in ways the general public understands, but it is factual that 97 percent of climate scientists state unequivocally that global planetary warming is real and human caused.

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Byung J. “Bjay” Pak of Chalmers Pak Burch & Adams LLC in Atlanta on his nomination by President Donald Trump and confirmation by the U.S. Senate to serve as the new U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Georgia.

Though I do not side with the Confederacy and their main reasons for fighting, I believe the chaos that comes from the unlawful destruction of these monuments will lead to no good end for our cities.

Unlike any other president in history, President Trump and his family have been held up for ridicule, treated disrespectully, and suffered false accusations from every trivial and irrelevant thing.

Our president made certain campaign promises that drew the support of enough citizens to be elected. He is working hard to keep his promises to his supporters. What is the big deal?
