There is much valuable information about the U.S. immigration crisis in Cesar Chelala’s opinion piece “Why the U.S. owes Central America” in the Aug. 10 edition.

In fact, I’m furious that we have been watching the humanitarian tragedy, and needless fighting and insults, for so long without this clear background explanation. Instead, we have been served with a heaping trash of commentaries that only confuse our understanding of the problems which plague the world today.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
