Letter To The Editor: Response To ‘Keep Them All Out’

Los Alamos

How ironic that the letter “I Say Keep Them All Out” was published just a week before Thanksgiving day, the holiday that the refugee Pilgrims fleeing religious persecution are said to have celebrated after surviving their first year in the New World, with the help of Native Americans.

I am sure the subsequent land grabs and violence against the “Natives” by descendants of the “Refugees” makes some natives feel like it should have been “Misgiving day.”

Nevertheless, the new world survived and became a great nation that welcomed many others to peace and prosperity. I fervently hope it will continue so and that one day we can move across nations as freely as we move across cities or states.
