One thought on “Welcoming the Stranger

  1. The numbers of refugees seeking asylum is large. The question of their disposition isn’t simple. If there is a presentation heavily aimed at full admittance into the US, I would hope an invitation to speak would be extended to an equally well-informed, rational speaker who has an opposing view. That would make an extremely interesting presentation.
