To the Editor:

A recent letter about an ICE raid shows what has become obvious over the past few years — Democrats and progressives reach conclusions in search of evidence.

The letter exemplified a recent letter I sent to the editor about their tactics. It seems impossible to legitimately discuss an issue with them without being subjected to name-calling and the application of labels.

The writer used two of the lowest forms of argument: Attacking the person by name calling and the use of loaded language to influence the reader. These arguments show the illegitimacy of the argument.

The writer expressed opinion as fact without foundation. One mistake is to conflate undocumented with documented immigrants. It is assumed the workers were from family units and being cherry-picked to be deported. Statistics do not bear this out.

The story about "Mommy and Daddy" shows another weakness. The reliance on fictional storytelling to prove a point.
