Senate Bill 4 is necessary
I strongly disagree with your editorial (“‘Day of Action’ is needed in Fort Worth,” Sunday).
Gov. Greg Abbott’s action on sanctuary cities is correct and follows our laws in dealing with immigrants here illegally, especially criminals. I would bet the majority of Fort Worth U.S. citizens agree with it also.
Almost every day there are examples of immigrants here illegally being caught in a serious crime. I don’t understand how board members of the Star-Telegram approve of actions that violate our laws.
I sure hope our Fort Worth leaders don’t join this lawsuit.
Abolish the public schools?
My opinion on public school abolition was met with strong opposition from my daughter and retired school teacher son-in-law.
In my opinion, there are far too many high school graduates who receive little or no education in our public school system. After attending public schools for 12 years, there are far too many graduating without the ability to write, spell or speak intelligibly.
As Michael J. Schneider said in his letter to the editor in Tuesday’s Star Telegram: “If a student doesn’t want to learn, why try to force him or her?”
Why are we taxpayers paying such high taxes without quality results?

Texafornia, here we come?
Some City Council members want to make our city a safe haven for lawbreakers. And they want taxpayers to foot the bill to provide that mecca.
Sounds like they want us to become Texafornia.

Release of voter info criticized
I called the secretary of state and the governor of Texas to express my displeasure at my private voter information being released to the partisan Kobach voter disenfranchisement initiative. I personally know other people in our area who did the same. (“Tarrant County voters are OK with Trump” July 28.)
Why would I call the county registrar? They have no say over the issue.
Extremely misleading. Dare I say, you have published fake news right there.

Fake bathroom selection issue
Texas Republicans are attacking our transgender children with a fake bathroom selection issue. There is no doubt that the federal courts will nullify this immoral law. Then the Texas Republicans will cry, “States’ rights! The federal government is telling us what to do!” I agree that in an ideal world, a strict interpretation of the Constitution was the original will of our forefathers, but we had to implement federal oversight decades ago to fix evil state policies. Here’s some helpful advice to the right-wing Texas legislators: keep the federal courts out of our business by being ethical and moral to all of our citizens, including our transgender children.

Thank you to Yu
And best of luck to you in joining a very strong team in a league where you will be expected to pitch well and also bat.
I anticipate watching you pitch in the World Series. Your former Ranger teammates have uncharacteristically given up on this season.
Mr. Jan Fersing, Fort Worth
