In her letter to the editor, Michelle Star from Jerome claims that the U.S. discriminated by allegedly allowing only white immigrants from Nazi Germany to enter the U.S. Who else did she expect from northern Europe: Africans? Asians? Middle-Easterners?
The one difference is that these arrivals at Ellis Island were immigrants, duly vetted by our immigration authorities. In other words, they entered through our front door, with our permission. On the other hand, we have the right to stop those who cross our borders without permission, whether Scandinavians, Slavs, French, Africans, Middle-Easterners, etc.
What a novel concept: Grant visas for legal immigration, and repel all invaders!
