Editors Note 2/23/17

 When headlines warn “Millions face possible deportation,” Springfield should heed the warning. Although this is not a haven for the undocumented, as major cities and border towns may be, new rules under consideration by the Trump administration could find victims in families here, besides causing fear among immigrant families. Local police may be asked to assist federal deportation forces. Will Springfield find a way to resist government overreach while respecting the law and welcoming immigrants? It’s time to plan a community response. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and publisher
