Hating Immigrants

Hating immigrants is a national past-time in the USA these days. Perhaps we should acknowledge the cost of that hate in the suffering of those who are desperate to leave their homeland in search of loved ones, freedom, or just a better chance of surviving. Those who hate vilify people who are in effect refugees, but how do you look at those who die trying to reach freedom and still sleep at night? These are truly ugly Americans.

There was a time when the government of this country would not tolerate a humanitarian disaster such as the one we are watching unfold on the edge of Europe, or on our southern border. I wish this were one of those times. But no, now is the time for hate, and ignorance. The wretched refuse are dying on the shores of Europe, and the United States. We should hang our heads in shame.
