A Call for Civility
Whenever I write about immigration issues on this blog I get comments from people who feel very strongly about this country's immigration policyor lack of policy.
I read all of your comments and appreciate that so many people are weighing in on these issues. But a couple of the commentsboth from people sympathetic to undocumented people and those who feel the federal government should crack down on illegal immigrationhave not been civil.
Education Week has a policy that we will remove comments that include abusive language or personal attacks. You can click on the policy posted right above the comment box. But there is some disagreement around here on what is considered a personal attack.
We don't want to take comments down and haven't at this point from this blog.
I urge you to use a constructive tone when commenting on controversial issuesand avoid nastiness. Using a mean tone with people you disagree with isn't going to help the immigration debate to move forward.
