I would like to thank all those at The News Herald responsible for the balanced and investigative reporting of the recent news about ICE arrests in Morganton. In two news articles,you presented both sides of a troubling situation after a lot of investigation.

Thank you, too, for including Burke County Public School's Cheryl Schuffler's reassurance that "Making school a safe place for all students is crucial."

I'm grateful that so many local people realize that though law and order is a good and essential goal, it cannot become all-powerful without frightening repercussions..

The recent news reminded me that incarcerated babies and children may have not been in the national news as much lately, but the actual babies and children are still imprisoned.
