Wilder, your poorly disguised racism is rather offensive. This was a story, at the heart of it, about a man whose life is very likely at risk. Whatever my opinions on legal vs. illegal residency, that is a tragedy. It is no less sad that this happens to a man named Bernardo than if it happened to one named Bernie. This is a human being. If you want to fault the author for bringing politics into this, that would be understandable. Did the author possibly impose her personal bias into the story - probably. And yet, at the heart of the story, a man is missing and his family is grieving. This man and his family will be in my prayers tonight... as will you.
