Letter: Compassionate policing in Aspen

Thank you and congratulations to Sheriff Joe DiSalvo and Chief Richard Pryor. We have known Joe for many years and would expect this from him to take a fair and compassionate position on the immigration issue. We, as residents of Pitkin County for almost 50 years, know of the value to us of our immigrant friends, who work hard, obey the law and are good citizens.

Thanks to the chief for stepping up. We know another important reason why we love this place.

Ron and Claudine Austin
