Letter: Thanks to Collin Peterson for clearing up suspicions

My public gratitude to Congressman Collin C. Peterson and his representing officer in Detroit Lakes, Jodi Dey, for inquiring on my behalf with the Department of Homeland Security and Transportation Security Administration regarding my suspicion that I have been "marked" as suspicious by such an agency for no reason other than profiling. To my and my family's relief, these agencies deny that my name appears on any such listing of persons to be watchful or suspicious about. I hope that this information will dissipate anxiety and gain for me some trust in the community. -- Dr. Carlos Torres, Detroit Lakes
