Regarding Loretta Lynch's nomination for attorney general, I could care less whether she represents "a historic first for the nation" or what race she is ("The Senate's Loretta Lynch debacle," April 22).

To me, the issue should be whether the nominee will abide by the Constitution and fully enforce existing laws — including the immigration laws — whether or not her boss agrees with them. If she cannot or will not swear under oath to do that she shouldn't be confirmed.

We need people in government who will respect the Constitution and established law. We do not need people who pick and choose just the parts of the Constitution or the laws they agree with. If I am not mistaken, that is why there is a separation of powers in government.
