Letters to the editor on Latinos, gun control, school funding

The first Hispanic/Latino immigrant to set foot in Kansas was Francisco Vasquez de Coronado back in the mid-1500s. Since that time, Hispanics and Latinos, and especially the Latino immigrant community, have been an enigma to many people. We have been defined, labeled, stigmatized, demonized, ostracized and disrespected. Some have portrayed us as terrorists and criminals, and even suggested that Latino immigrants deserve the same treatment as feral hogs. This is our reality.
