NANCY C. FERRUZZO, San Juan Capistrano

I read with total shock the words of Pam Patterson in her meeting with President Donald Trump. In no way does this woman speak for the people of this city. We have a wonderful, diverse population, both tolerant and compassionate. To equate the immigrants from Mexico and Central America, who are desperate to escape poverty and lack of opportunity, with the terrorists of 9/11 borders on insanity. Fortunately, her term is up for re-election in November.
