Keene, David
December 2007
Hill;12/18/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 147, p17
The author reflects on the discrimination of immigrants in the U.S., particularly to Iraqi people. The author argues that the nation do not seem to be much good at making distinctions in identifying immigrants between those it wants to keep out and welcomes with open arms. The author urges that Americans should prove themselves worthy of acceptance and make sure that as they strengthen their borders to bar entry to terrorists, they do not punish those they should welcome with open arms.
