Letter To The Editor: About That Refugee Fast Track…

Los Alamos

Refugees such as was I, from communist Czechoslovakia in 1948 had to wait two and a half years in refugee camps before we were allowed to come to this legendary Land of Liberty. 

My father received a death sentence (in absentia) from the Stalinist regime. Yet even with family history of pro-American political and journalistic activity, there was no fast track for me to come to America. 

For me to come to the United States I needed a sponsor of good moral character who would vouch for me that I also was a child with a value system compatible with “The American Way”.

Why, pray tell, should not “refugees” from traditions which are hostile to our Constitution be given preferential treatment and a fast track to immigration?
