History, not reaction
There was a President of the United States who signed an immigration bill that gave 3 million undocumented workers who had established themselves as productive members of our nation a path to citizenship.
Then it was discovered that the bill inadvertently split families. Spouses and children of undocumented workers were not covered by the bill. So, while the workers had a path to citizenship, their families had a good chance of being deported.
Congress tried amending the legislation, but there were not enough votes to do so. So, President Reagan signed an Executive Order. Using his authority as head of the administrative branch of government, he suspended the deportation of the family members. There was no outcry. There was no talk of impeachment. Go figure.
Trooper takes time
to do right thing
You can turn on the television and see all the negativity around the United States regarding law enforcement. Today I would like to say a special thank you to Highway Patrolman G. Maherg. He is a wonderful representative for law enforcement and the S.C. Highway Patrol.
My father was in a motor vehicle accident on Nov. 12. His vehicle was damaged and could not be driven home. Horry County EMS wanted to transport him to the hospital because of his injuries but he refused. He told the officer that my mother was very ill and he took care of her and needed to get home.
The officer very sweetly took my dad home to be with my mother. This was above and beyond his line of duty. When you have older parents you worry about them all the time. It is good to know there are officers like G. Maherg who still go that extra mile and care. Thank you so much.
