While we heard President Obama announce his proposal transforming a new American immigration policy that spares 5 million from deportation, we should brace for the expected backlash from Congress. Let US underline the need for civility and civil interaction, which means calling attention to the perceived decline in civility, as others decry such messages as infringing upon important institutional values supporting free inquiry, freedom of expression and the robust exchange of ideas.

This is an important conversation for US to have and the call for civility need not come at the price of any principles. Considerations might assist anyone seeking to encourage greater civility and civil discourse, while also embracing freedom of expression and related principles. One Nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

What is your opinion? What say most of your friends and family members?
