In response to Roberto Torres' latest commentary ("Civic leaders must denounce hate groups and Trump," The Daily News, Aug. 21): Torres called for a denouncement of President Trump because in Torres' eyes President Trump did not vociferously enough denounce the white nationalists that marched in Charlottesville.
Part of what Torres' pointed to was President Trump's statements about Mexican immigrants knowing full well that President Trump called the Cayotes rapists, murderers, and criminals and not all illegal immigrants coming from Mexico. As for the Muslim ban, Torres again puts forth a falsehood knowing that President Trump wanted a temporary ban on immigration from certain countries because of possible terrorist infiltration until a better plan of vetting could be put into place.
As an officer of the court, anyone who falsely testified against someone he was examining he would have them held liable for their actions. One of the wisest men who ever lived once said, "Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace..."
Torres shows himself unwise because he supports people who elected a Grand Klegal of the KKK as a senator, who thinks Antifa is non-violent and Black Lives Matter is not racist and based on falsehoods.
